The Ritual is a monster movie with psychological ambitions and seemingly a decent budget. The jötunn 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.
I’m sorry, but who the fuck, with no promotional material, and with a name as generic as _The_ fuckin’ _Ritual_, told this movie, it was allowed to be so good?
_Final rating:★★★½ – I really liked it. Would strongly recommend you give it your time._
Safest place in the world are actually the Swedish woods
As a film, I really enjoyed it. Kinda creepy, and it was well executed from cast to photo to everything.
Only thing i oppose, as a Swede, is the image of the Swedish woods as something scary. It really isn’t, I’m sorry to say. I have spent a good many nights there in tents and cabins, and I am pretty well educated about the folklore. This one turns into something that is reall none-Scandinavian in terms of that. None of the “rituals” or creatures have nothing to do with actual lore. Sure, they speak about norse figures like the children of Loki, but that is just silly.
As a fright-flick, though, it is good.
And for you to know: We do have scary creatures in the woods. But we who live here know them, and they look like nothing as projected here. Come and see.
The woodlands are a sight to see and have a very alienating feel that tells you that you are never safe, no matter if its daylight or night.
The film is about a group of friends who go trekking in the Swedish forests to honour their dead friend’s wish. I got enticed due to the trailer n the director’s name was sufficient for me. Have enjoyed David Bruckners films. (The Signal 2007, Siren, Southbound). Saw this on a rented dvd. The film captured the eerie nature of the forest so well, it becomes the most important character in the film. The creepiness n sense of dread in the broad daylight n the surrealistic nightmare sequences in the nighttime added solid tensions. The dream sequences in the cabin was truly nightmarish. The suspense is maintained throughout. This film makes getting lost in the woods scary all over again. The woodlands are a sight to see and have a very alienating feel that tells you that you are never safe, no matter if its daylight or night.
