Strange Rituals is a 2017 American supernatural horror film written, produced and directed by Michael Fredianelli (The Devil in White; Xenobites). The Wild Dogs Productions movie stars Lara Jean Mummert, Laura Warner and Jeremy Koerner.


After a night of heavy drinking, Jeanne and Deb take an empty road through the backwoods to avoid traffic where they unexpectedly hit a mysterious woman that quickly vanishes into a field. Plagued with guilt and unable to go to the police, the girls decide to investigate with the help of some friends.

However, when their peers start to die or inexplicably vanish, it becomes clear that a bigger, sinister force is at work as Jeanne is thrown into a bizarre conflict with the undead and a sinister voodoo priest with malicious intentions…


” …Strange Rituals might not exactly be reinventing genre cinema … but horror fans will love it for what it is, a slim and swift zombie story without big pretentions, instead concentrating on delivering a tense story arc with shocks and gore in all the right places, and believable and flawed but likeable characters to carry the story.” Mike Haberfelner, Search My Trash

“While restrained in the gore department, the movie’s special makeup effects (headed by Stephanie Hancock) are a highlight. There are more than a few grotesque faces that standout out among an impressive horde of zombie extras. The movie’s synth soundtrack by Dakarius is well suited to the action…” Pycal
