Plot summary

What is The Ritual movie plot?

Here is a short review of "The Ritual" movie plot summary.

Five 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 holiday. Rob suggests hiking in Sweden, but gets rebuffed. Afterward, Luke and Rob leave to purchase alcohol, but interrupt a robbery in progress. Luke hides while the thieves harass Rob for his valuables. Luke continues to hide, torn with indecision over how to intervene before the thieves kill Rob for not giving them his ring.
Six months later, the remaining four embark on a hiking trip along the Kungsleden in northern Sweden in Rob's memory. A day later, Dom injures his knee. Hutch suggests they cut through the forest rather than use the longer marked trail in the hopes of sparing Dom 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 awake to find Luke's chest bleeding from strange puncture wounds and a naked Phil praying to the effigy. Disturbed by their 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 calls Luke a coward for letting Rob die to save himself.
