I missed my ritual for Day 9

It’s quite fitting that I missed my ritual October horror movie on the night I was to watch The Ritual. I remember friends recommending this to me when it first came to Netflix and they were right to recommend it.

I am certainly thinking twice about going hiking especially in Europe. The Ritual is about a group of 5 men who always go on a vacation together over some sort of regular interval. But, they don’t seem to actually like each other much. One of them dies in a rather tragic way in the company of Luke. So now the other 3 sort of blame Luke for the incident.

They decide to do hike through the woods to spend their holiday at a lodge. It sounds like a wonderful trip to me, but things quickly go left.

The Ritual begins like many lost in the woods movies, but there is actually a bit of mystery on whether people are hunting them or if it’s something otherworldly. It’s worth watching this movie just to see what/who is hunting them. Trust me, it’s worth it.

Overall, I’d still take a trip like this, but I would not venture into the wilds of Europe while the world is more paranoid than usual. It would make it a lot harder for me to trust random cabins in the woods.

Things I learned:

  1. It’s better to move on from old friends than to have them all die.
  2. If it’s a good shortcut then it would just be the route. Don’t take sketchy shortcuts.
  3. Sometimes it’s good for your wellbeing to go through emotional pain.
  4. Be familiar with local mythology.
