Filmmaker David Bruckner co-directed 2007’s terrific apocalypse movie The Signal and and also brought us one of the best recent horror anthology segments with Accident, which appeared in 2015’s Southbound. Now, Bruckner has overseen his first solo feature, the woods-set terror tale The Ritual, which premieres Feb. 9 on Netflix.
The film stars Rafe Spall (Prometheus, Black Mirror), Robert James-Collier (Downton Abbey), Arsher Ali (Four Lions), and Sam Troughton (AVP: Alien vs. Predator) as four old friends who, following the death of another pal, set out to hike through the Scandinavian wilderness, only to find themselves being stalked by an ancient evil.
The Ritual is written by Joe Barton and costars Paul Reid.
