The Ritual (2017)

At the halfway point in our 31 nights of horror marathon

OMG, WTF, BBQ! This movie was so good! No zombie flick last night, instead it’s a straight up spooky horror in the woods.

Do you like hiking, camping, getting in touch with nature? DON’T watch this movie! It will freak you out and ruin what you love.

I’m not going to go into too much detail with this story, because a lot of the suspense comes from not having a clue what is going on until the very end.

Aside from the excellent acting and realistically natural dialog, there’s one other thing this movie does very well. The whole movie is told from the perspective of just one character, there are other people in the movie, but what I mean is, not a single shot is done from their perspective, only his. It brings an intimacy and immediacy that puts the viewer right in the movie with him.

Short article, I’m sorry, but I’m not saying anything more, I don’t want to spoil it. Go watch this movie.
