Overview

Deep in the northern woods, world famous anthropologist Anne McCauley is researching the dark rituals of America's first nations. Aided by local Shaman Vernon Rivers, she is learning the spine chilling tale of Windigo, a legendary cannibal creature. Suddenly her son and despised daughter in law return to her secluded cottage. A series of diabolical events is triggered that brings the audience and Anne McCauley face to face with the darkest fears that lurk in all of us: that territory where the supernatural blends with murder and ritual death. Don't be fooled by names in the cast list, for no one is what he or she appears to be and everyone is wearing a mask of deception. Dark Rituals is a contemporary thriller of revenge and family conflict, spiced with a delicious seasoning of black humor.
