The Ritual (2017)
Critic Reviews for The Ritual
A superior B-movie shocker set in the hinterlands of northern Sweden.
If it lacks the originality and sheer muscle of the best horror fare, this does offer an astute take on fragile thirtysomething machismo.
Starts with an effective inciting incident but devolves into something that feels overly familiar.
Directed by David Bruckner, the film's horror is engaging; its look, handsome. While thoughtfully done, the entertainment value of this sombre scare fiesta isn't high.
Surely the best Yank-directed horror movie about English blokes terrorized by monsters in Romania-posing-as-Sweden that you'll see this year.
