Netflix's "The Ritual" Trailer Will Keep You Out of the Woods

Netflix's

February isn't necessarily the month you think of when you think of horror films, but next month Netflix is rolling out something that looks extraordinarily creepy: The Ritual. He's also done segments in anthropology horror films like V/H/S and Southbound.

The official synopsis of the film, via Bloody Disgusting, reads: "Reuniting after the tragic death of their best mate, four old friends from university set out to hike through the Scandinavian wilderness".

The Ritual will be available on Netflix February 9th.

The film sees Rafe Spall (Prometheus, the "White Christmas" episode in Black Mirror), Robert James-Collier (Downton Abbey), Sam Troughton (AVP: Alien vs. Predator) and Arsher Ali wander around in the wilderness and get spooked out by some kind of evil spirit. With Chloe Sizer and eOne's Laura Wilson overseeing, Jonathan Cavendish, Richard Holmes and Philip Robertson will produce for The Imaginarium. But when Luke, the only man still single and living a precarious existence, finds he has little left in common with his well-heeled friends, tensions rise.

In a story that's part The Blair Witch Project and part Dreamcatcher, The Ritual follows four friends who opt to reconnect after another of their best friends is murdered during a robbery. Frustrated and exhausted they take a shortcut that turns their hike into a nightmare that could cost them their lives. The residue of old rites and pagan sacrifice for something that still exists in the forest. A place of dark ritual and home to a bestial presence that is still present in the ancient forest, and now they're the prey.
