David Bruckner’s The Ritual will teach you never to go hiking in Sweden, because you just don’t know what’s lurking in the woods. The film is produced by Andy Serkis’ performance capture studio The Imaginarium, which is based in London. Today we have access to the official trailer, and it delivers the terror. Head on down to watch it now!
If you enjoy horror films that take place in the woods, The Ritual could be just what you’re looking for.
“Nevill’s novel centers on four friends from college who head off into the Scandinavian wild in an effort to get away from it all and reconnect with each other. But what begins as a trip of bonding and friendship turns into a nightmare when they take a shortcut and end up lost. Some of them are injured, and they seem stranded with nothing but forest in every direction. While trying to find their way back to civilization, they come across what seems to be an abandoned cottage. Inside they discover ancient artifacts on the wall and bones scattered on the floor in a sacrificial manner. They soon discover that something is stalking them and is intent on keeping them from leaving the woods.”
The film stars Rafe Spall (The Big Short, Life of Pi), Robert James-Collier (Downton Abbey, Spike Island), Arsher Ali (Line of Duty, Four Lions) and Sam Troughton (Robin Hood, Alien vs. Predator).
The Ritual opens in UK and Irish cinemas Friday, October 13th, 2017.
