What is it?

The 2017 / 2018 British supernatural horror movie The Ritual.

What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:

Following the sudden, violent death of their best mate, four young men reunite for a hike through the Scandinavian wilderness.

Deep in the black, Nordic forest they find themselves lost in a hell of sinister nightmares and pagan sacrifices.

For these ancient woods are home to a malevolent deity which will force them to face the darkness inside themselves.

My Thoughts

This movie was not bad but there were too many unanswered questions, unexplained details, some of the characters were not developed enough, the movie was too dark at times so I could not see much during most of the night scenes, and the movie could have been shorter.

The actors did a good job acting like friends who really knew each other for years though, and there were some nice scenes of the scenery sometimes when it was not too dark; but I think that I liked the movie The Descent better than this.

The end,
