I hadn’t heard anything about this new movie–The Ritual–and only came across it scouring Youtube for new horror trailers. I’m glad I stumbled across it, because it looks like it could be promising. If you’ve been here for a while, you know I’m super into horror that takes place in nature. It’s one of my favorite sub-genres of horror. There are so many fun psychological twists and turns one can take, and this looks like it might be a lot of fun. It also looks like it might break the fourth wall a bit, or play with genre irony. I’m thinking, in particular, of the moment in the trailer where one of the characters says “This is definitely the house we die in,” or something along those lines. It’s a great line.
The Ritual comes out 13 October 2017.
Until next time, stay scary.
