HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! "The Ritual" on NETFLIX. Amazing and scary. With a beautiful creature designed by frequent collaborator Keith Thompson.

Guillermo del Toro(via Twitter)

Efficient and highly effective in its style, relying on sound, creepy production design, and the men's own fear and misjudgment to create the sense of pervasive doom.

Los Angeles Times

Entertaining, engrossing and at times genuinely unnerving, Bruckner's bad trip is one for horror fans to relish.

Total Film

I was impressed by it, I liked it… I thought it was well done and I thought it was enthusiastically played.

Mark Kermode(speaking on the BBC)

The Ritual is a creepy, freaky slice of terror that knows exactly where it wants to put its audience and will effectively scare the pants off you.
