This was not bad at all. I first started watching predicting it was going to be bad, I don't even know why. But, actually, it turned up quite good. Nice setting and plot. Great acting, in my opinion. I thought the soundtracks were freakin' good. Overall, it's nice. I personally enjoyed it. PS: a Jottun means a giant, yes? Wonder what's the name of that creature! lol Anyways, that monster's design or whatever it is, was really good, Imho.

Good horror flick! Very pleasant surprise. Well acted, great tension, scary monster. Nothing groundbreaking here, but just a good old fashioned scary monster movie. If that’s what you are looking for, you won’t go wrong here!

Absolutely worth a watch if you like a good, suspenseful horror movie, that doesn't rely too much on being gory but rather concentrates on a psychological plot and shows believable characters with believable actions and emotions. The setting is very eerie and spooky - I am pretty sure nothing will ever make me go hiking in Swedish Woodland (or Romanian for that matter) after watching the movie. :D [spoiler]It was revealed through exposition in dialogue that the creature is a _Jötunn_, a giant bastard son of Loki. For the most part of the movie I was pretty sure it is a **Wendigo** that is chasing people in the woods, as a few things fit right into that myth. Still not sure if the movie really had nothing to do with Wendigos or if they somehow combined the myths. I'd like to believe I'm right, though. :D [/spoiler].

I'm sorry, but who the fuck, with no promotional material, and with a name as generic as _The_ fuckin' _Ritual_, told this movie, it was allowed to be so good?

_Final rating:★★★½ - I really liked it. Would strongly recommend you give it your time._

The Ritual is a monster movie with psychological ambitions and seemingly a decent budget. The jötunn monster is actually quite good and so are the cyclic re-enactments of the early on liquor store trauma. Unfortunately the rest of the movie is as bland as the title and relies too much on exotism of More
