What is The Ritual about?

Five university friends - Phil (Arsher Ali), Dom (Sam Troughton), Hutch (Robert James-Collier), Luke (Rafe Spall), and Rob - meet at a pub and discuss plans for a group lad's trip. Rob suggests hiking in Sweden, but gets rebuffed. Afterward, Luke and Rob enter a shop to purchase alcohol, but interrupt a robbery in progress. Luke hides while Rob becomes frozen with fear as the thieves antagonize him for his valuables. Luke nearly intervenes, but decides against it before the thieves kill Rob for refusing to relinquish his wedding ring along with his wallet and disobeying their demands.
Six months later, the remaining four embark on a hiking trip along the Kungsleden in northern Sweden in Rob's memory. Almost immediately, Dom injures his knee. Hutch suggests they cut through the forest rather than use the longer marked trail in the hopes of sparing Dom any further suffering. Upon entering the forest however, the group encounters strange phenomena, including a gutted elk hanging from several branches and strange symbols carved in the trees. As night falls, a torrential rainstorm forces them to find shelter. They come upon an abandoned cabin, so they break in and stay for the night. Inside, they find necklaces bearing similar symbols and a wooden effigy of a decapitated human torso with antlers for hands. The next morning, the group are shocked awake from nightmares to find Luke's chest bleeding from strange puncture wounds and Phil kneeling naked, praying to the effigy. Disturbed and puzzled by their own unconscious actions, the group tries to find a way out. While discerning their location, Luke spots a large figure amongst the trees, but Dom doubts him. In their ensuing argument, Dom brings up the past, calling Luke a coward for letting Rob die to save himself, escaping without even so much as a scratch on him.
