“Your darkest dreams await you…”
This new movie is about a group of friends that enter into the woods where terrifying and nightmarish things are waiting for them. I know you have seen a lot of movies all on the same silly subject but trust me this one looks different and very serious! Netflix produced the movie so it can’t be that bad, and after watching the trailer, I am sold.
The Ritual is based on a 2011 British horror novel by Adam Nevill and the movie is directed by David Bruckner, who also directed segments in the horror films Southbound, V/H/S, and The Signal.
Reuniting after the tragic death of their best mate, four old friends from university set out to hike through the Scandinavian wilderness. But a wrong turn leads them into the dark and mysterious forests of Norse legend, where an ancient evil still exists and stalks them at every turn.
The Ritual stars Rafe Spall, Arsher Ali, Robert James-Collier, and Sam Troughton.
The Ritual airs on Netflix February 9, 2018.
