This month we take a look at David Bruckner’s The Ritual, a Netflix Original film about a group of college friends that hike through a dense forest in Sweden and run into some creepy stuff. It’s everything Blair Witch 2016 should have been – as in good. We’ve got some great scares and imagery on display in this film, and a look at some nightmarish Nordic legends, which is quite refreshing.
