WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
A group of old college friends get together after one of them is killed, for a hiking trip through the Swedish forests. However, during their trek in these unnerving Scandinavian woodlands, they come across a series of disturbing sights, and it soon becomes apparent that someone – or something – is refusing to let them leave…
IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?
Based on the acclaimed horror bestseller by Adam Nevill, The Ritual is a dark and dangerous odyssey into the heart of the Scandinavian woods, and let’s just say that like the unwilling victims you’re not going to like what you find.
