One of the most tense and exhilarating films I've watched in a long while

The key to any good horror film has always been having characters that are realistic and that the audience can relate to and care for. Yet so many horror films completely overlook this element in their film. 'The Ritual' does not make this mistake. These characters are highly flawed, but they're also relatable and we as an audience can understand (if not fully agree with) choices and decisions they've made. I suspect a lot of this stems from the fact that 'The Ritual' was based on a novel as the source material. Movies based on novels almost always contain more depth to their characters for obvious reasons.

So you've got yourself a set of great characters, but that still isn't enough to guarantee a successful film. You now have the obligation to utilise those characters you've created. 'The Ritual' ticks that box as well. Firstly, it's a great looking film. They did a fantastic job picking the setting for the film. Creepy and atmospheric, whilst beautiful and endearing at the same time. Secondly, this film ticks possibly the rarest box a horror movie is ever able to achieve these days, which is to be scary. I almost never get any rise in my heart-rate during a horror film any more, but that was certainly not the case here. I was invested in the story and the suspense had me on edge.

The first 3/4 of the film are some of the best mystery, suspense, horror film watching I've done in years. This film was almost destined for greatness, but unfortunately the final 1/4 does let things a slip a bit. Once any mystery is gone from the story things lose steam a little and everything becomes a little stock-standard. The ending is quite abrupt too, and I had hoped for a little more. Altogether though I certainly recommend giving this film a watch. It's about as good as modern horror films come.

a breath of fresh air (for me)

I really loved this movie. The simple fact,that the characters act like people elevated this movie for me.The charcaters are very believable and have good chemistry. That's what made me get into it.I don't consider most horror films good movies hugely because of the plot contrivance over personality approach. But that's not all,that i liked. The cinematography is beautiful at times and captures some truly astonishing landscapes.It can also be very tense,creative and effective.I was really impressed with it over the course of the film. There is also some terrific creature design at work. The monster is very creative,scary and impressive.I was positively surprised.I hadn't seen a good monster design in ages.

My only gripe on the first viewing was a change of pace towards the end.However i got ued to it and i accepted where the film was headed.

It's not perfect.But unless you're trying to dissect it,it won't hinder your experience.

Definatley recommended. Good characters,good cinematography,good atmosphere,great creature design,very tense.

Awesome horror movie, truly creepy

I don't understand the 2 star ratings here. This is a solid horror movie. I was truly creeped out the whole time, which is what I look for in a horror.

Yeah it's not perfect, but it is WAY better than the Blair Witch project. As a horror fan I give this a 9/10. Not because it is a perfect movie, but because I found it so unsettling, weird, and well, scary.

Don't look for logic, just surrender yourself and be afraid!
