About The Ritual
If there’s one thing that horror movies have taught us, it’s that no one should ever go into the woods. And if you're heading in there with a group of friends with a troubled past? It's suicide. This solid and spooky old-fashioned forest flick follows Luke and his three thirty-something friends on a hiking holiday in Sweden, following the violent death of their friend during a convenience store robbery. While not particularly original or fresh, The Ritual has plenty of atmosphere, style and intelligence; entertaining, engrossing, and at times genuinely unnerving.
