The Ritual (2017)

Written by EmkEyen on February 23, 2018

The Ritual is a monster movie with psychological ambitions and seemingly a decent budget. The j├Âtunn monster is actually quite good and so are the cyclic re-enactments of the early on liquor store trauma. Unfortunately the rest of the movie is as bland as the title and relies too much on exotism of the deep Swedish forests. Sadly even that component gets watered out and the endgame cultists seem to be some recycled wiccans from Scotland rather than pre-christians of northern Scandinavia.
