Review – The Ritual

Here’s proof that a horror movie can actually have too much atmosphere. This is a pretty movie to look at. Some of the visual eeriness works well, at least until the end when we finally get a good long look at the somewhat ridiculous monster. Sadly, the production falls victim to the same shortcoming that seems to bedevil a lot of similar genre pieces of late: I don’t give a rat’s ass about any of the characters. Even worse, at least two of the guys we’re evidently supposed to care about (including the lead) are so awful that I found myself hoping they’d die. Maybe someday the cinematographer will get the chance to work on a better picture. See if desperate
