The Ritual is a British horror film directed by David Bruckner, released in 2017.
Five longtime friends discuss the destination of their next vacation. Luke and Robert then go to a night-time grocery store to buy alcohol while Phil, Dom and Hutch wait for them on the street. But a robbery is in progress in the business and Robert is killed while Luke remains hidden in the store.
Six months later, Luke, Phil, Dom and Hutch are in Sweden on the Kungsleden hike proposed by Robert. When Dom injures his knee, Hutch decides to take a shortcut through the forest which should allow the group to get to the shelter faster. In the woods, the four men see an eviscerated elk hanging in a tree as well as engraved runes. In the evening, they find shelter in a cabin and discover a strange wooden sculpture in the attic. During the night, all four have terrible nightmares.
The next morning, Luke wakes up with bites to his chest and the group find Phil in the attic, naked and kneeling in prayer in front of the effigy. The group leaves the cabin to continue their journey deeper into the woods but their progress is difficult. Scouting, Luke sees an unknown creature behind a tree trunk. Dom doubts what Luke saw and an argument ensues between the two of them. During the night, Luke, Phil and Dom are awakened by screams and find that Hutch's tent is empty. They go looking for him before realizing that they have got lost. They decide to continue without their tents and provisions and eventually find Hutch impaled on tree branches.
