The Ritual
#15
I really enjoyed this.

First of all it was beautifully shot. I'm a big fan of lost in the woods types of movies, and Bruckner did a great job of filming the forest in a way that there is a sense of geography. It definitely looks like the cast is traveling through the woods and the whole thing isn't just being shot in wood particular spot.

The set design was also fantastic. That initial cabin they find themselves taken shelter in was just wild.

Luke's dreams blending more and more with reality were incredibly filmed.

I really dug the design of the jotun. Blending two human bodies and using arms as mandibles was something I've never seen before. I really loved the shot of it galloping behind the grocery store racks.

And there was more than enough to scare/creep me out during this one. The friends all waking up in the cabin after spending the night was bonkers. But my favourite part of the movie was when Luke hears the chanting/moaning coming from behind the door and when he opens it, it goes silent. Only to find a congregation worshipping... something. And the slow realization that maybe this is what the long life is that Loki grants them in exchange for worship.
