About The Ritual

Waking up buried alive under a few inches of soil in the Indonesian jungle, mind fogged with amnesia, a man struggles to find out who he is, where he is, and why a maniac with a machete and a crossbow is trying to kill him.

A black-hearted and blood-lusting thriller with a vicious sting, RITUAL is a merciless stalk-and-slash tour de force that descends into a full-blown Lynch-ian nightmare. Watch out for RITUAL… it’s a killer!
