NETFLIX BUYS THE RITUAL

By 24th September 2017Uncategorised

Well, to all my mates, brothers and sisters in horror in the US … you’re getting The Ritual on Netflix. It’ll be after the UK theatrical release and I’ll post the release date when I get it. It won’t be having a US cinema release, but this way a hell of a lot more of you will see it, and soon, and TVs are about the same size as cinema screens nowadays – plus you don’t have chowderheads lighting up phone screens or crunching dumpsters of popcorn behind your seat at home.

UK folks – we get it on the big screen, but Netflix much later. So if you want to see it first, then October 13th is your chance. Get some.

Read about the deal here and here.

  • Chris says:

    From the US here. I’ve been searching for this movie EVERYWHERE since I first saw the trailer months ago. Glad to see it’s coming to Netflix, just wondering when.

  • Adam Nevill says:

    Hi Chris – thanks for the interest. The movie should be screening on the 9th of Feb 2018 – next month.

    My brother watched the movie with his mates and said it was great.
    I bought the book less than 2 weeks ago and finished it a few days ago(that’s really fast for me) LOVED IT! Gutted I have to wait another few weeks to watch it
    Happy to have found an English horror writer who can make me laugh. Cheers

  • Adam Nevill says:

    Hey, Tom. Thanks very much for trying the book, and for appreciating it. Joes’s script should give you a few good belly laughs too. In parts, it’s far funnier than the book. Cheers.

  • Neil Ronald says:

If you know the why, please let me know as i am abit concerned..thank you.

  • Paul Childs says:

    Hello Adam – do you happen to know when it will be available on Netflix in the UK? I was really looking forward to watching this tonight and when I logged on it was not there. An enquiry with a Netflix employee got me this reply “That film is not available in the UK”.

  • Ben bradbury says:

    Will it ever come to the UK Netflix?

  • Adam Nevill says:

    Currently it’s available via DVD and VOD – Sky Cinema and iTunes, and I’m told Rakuten TV, Talktalk TV (formerly Blinkbox), Virgin, Amazon & Google Play. But whether it will eventually be on Netflix, I can’t say, but distribution is wide. Thanks for the interest too, Ben.

  • Adam Nevill says:

    Hi Paul. DVD and VOD – Sky Cinema and iTunes, and I’m told Rakuten TV, Talktalk TV (formerly Blinkbox), Virgin, Amazon & Google Play. It was already booked for the Uk, when the Netflix distribution was purchased at the premier, I believe.

  • Adam Nevill says:

    Netflix worldwide sans the UK. I found out last week too. But in the UK and Ire we have DVD, and VOD – Sky Cinema and iTunes, and I’m told Rakuten TV, Talktalk TV (formerly Blinkbox), Virgin, Amazon & Google Play.

  • Adam Nevill says:

    Thank you, Gabriella. I hope you enjoy the adaptation too.

  • Des says:

    Just finished watching this movie for the third time on Netflix (USA). It is an amazing story. I love love love the monster – there is an excellent article posted in Forbes about how it should get a cult following https://www.forbes.com/sites/danidiplacido/2018/02/18/the-monster-from-netflixs-the-ritual-deserves-a-cult-following/#905d46718122. I really loved this movie and wish I could purchase it, but I can’t play DVD region 2 (I’m in region 1). Guess this guarantees I’ll stay with Netflix for a while :). Excellent movie!

  • Adam Nevill says:

    Thanks very much, Des, for appreciating the film so much and for letting me know. We’re all delighted in how this film has gone over with horror viewers and readers. I’ve read that Forbes article – one of the best we’ve had and in such an unlikely place too. I’ll post on here if/when a US DVD release become available. I think that’s down to Netflix. But I have heard a bluray is due in April in the UK, at least. Thanks again.

  • Jeannie says:

    When will the ritual be released on DVD in the USA? I love this movie so much that I’ve already watched in 3 or 4 times & I keep searching for it to be on DVD but I somehow haven’t had any luck yet. I feel like my collection is incomplete without this masterpiece

  • Adam Nevill says:

    I thought it was out in the US, so this is news to me. But I have no news. Sorry. But thanks so much for letting me know how much you like the film!
