Terrific review of The Ritual from Glasgow Live, as we count down to the Netflix and DVD releases next month.
“While some films tend to veer down a path of logic and reason, The Ritual welcomes the unknown and the mystery of campfire tales and runs with it. And it does all this without ever becoming silly. Creepy imagery and symbols skirt the camera frame throughout, whether it’s signs carved into trees or the headless “straw man” the foursome find in an abandoned house in the middle of the woods. Even the sound design is crafted in such a way that it gets under your skin without ever feeling the need to become oppressive or loud”
