6The Ritual

The Ritual

In The Ritual, after a group of five British friends drink and make merry in a local pub, one of them is brutally murdered in a liquor store robbery. Six months later, the remaining four men: Luke, Phil, Hutch, and Dom hike through the countryside of Northern Sweden to honor their fallen friend.

After a fitting tribute and the creation of a shrine for “Bob,” they start back to their lodge. Almost immediately, Dom falls, hurting his knee. Hutch, who appears to be the group’s leader and holder of both the compass and the map, strongly suggests that given Dom’s injury, they try to find a shorter way back through the woods.

It’s a fatal mistake. Coming upon an elk, gutted and hanging from a tree, they’re more than a little unnerved. Then, as night falls and eerie animal sounds envelope them, they take refuge in an abandoned cabin. It’s a place filled with strange relics, ritual markings, and an effigy made of straw.

The four men begin to unravel. Escalating tension, long-standing animosities emerge and all four experience harrowing nightmares. Come morning, a shocking death sends them reeling. What follows is an all-out fight for survival against an unseen villain or villains who seem to be aware of their every move as they desperately try to escape the forest.
