The Ritual

A guys’ trip wrought with anger, grief, tension, and a shortcut through a dense Swedish forest. Sounds like a blast to us! The Ritual (2017), directed by David Bruckner, explores the dynamics of male friendship in the wake of their friend’s murder against the backdrop of a remote hiking trip. The men are pursued by what seems to be a creature in the forest, but also by their own shame and guilt. This movie is a visual treat with an ending that gives us plenty to talk about. Get into it!
