The Ritual has continued to enjoy positive notices online, not least from guitar god and Metallica legend, Kirk Hammett, here . I’m a big Metallica fan and first saw them play in 1986, supported by Anthrax, so to see Kirk Hammett appreciate the film so much was a peak moment for me as a writer.
I often find online lists of horror films useful for identifying films on Netflix or Prime that may have slipped under my radar. I’ve collated a few here that include The Ritual.
The first selection contains spoilers for the films included but a memorable scene from The Ritual was recognised too: here
IGN’s Friday 13th roundup also recommends The Ritual here .
Thrilllist includes The Ritual as one of the scariest films of 2018 so far here
And The Lineup acknowledges the film in the same way here
Beyond the film, it was heart-warming to see House of Small Shadows included here for fans of The Conjuring.
