Rites of Passage is a 2012 thriller film that revolves around a group of college friends who set out on a camping trip to an abandoned island off the coast of Florida. The group includes the protagonist, Nathan (played by Wes Bentley), his lover Jessie (played by Kate Maberly), and their friends, Jay (played by Ryan Donowho), Ben (played by Travis Van Winkle), and Penelope (played by Ashley Hinshaw).

As they arrive on the island, they quickly realize that things are not as they seem. Strange occurrences begin to happen and they soon discover that they are not alone on the island. They find themselves in the midst of a ritualistic ceremony being conducted by a group of masked cultists who are determined to keep their island's secrets hidden.

Nathan, who is a cynical and unapproachable character, is forced to deal with his past trauma and confront his inner demons as he tries to lead his friends to safety. However, as the group's situation becomes increasingly dire, they soon realize that the only way to survive is to fight back against their captors.

The movie has a slow-burning tension, building suspense layer by layer, as the group of friends navigates their way through the dark and foreboding island. The acting is top-notch, with Wes Bentley delivering a powerful performance as the emotionally tormented Nathan, while Kate Maberly stands out as the strong and resourceful Jessie.

The film's haunting atmosphere is reinforced by its excellent cinematography, which effectively captures the eerie and unsettling natural setting of the island. The ominous score adds to the film's overall sense of dread and contributes to its immersive experience.

Rites of Passage is a well-crafted and underrated thriller that deserves more recognition. It is a compelling story that engages the audience with its dynamic characters, intricate plot, and powerful themes. It is a must-see for fans of suspenseful cinema, horror, and psychological thrillers.
