HERE'S AN IDEA
"Rituals" (1977) has often been compared to the classic film, “Deliverance”...and while there are a few similarities..."Deliverance," this one ain't. Still, it's a fun watch.
A group of guys take a vacation together for a little male-bonding adventure. This time...getting dropped off in the middle of the boonies for a 5-day camping trip. As you would expect, there are arguments, injuries, treacherous rapids and, of course, someone in the woods trying to scare them...or worse.
It's strange to see a young Hal Holbrook flexing his chops in this film, 'cause my eyes keep flashing...'Mark Twain in the membrane.' But once I shook that image from my head, it was all good. “Rituals” has almost become the red-headed stepchild in the ‘predator-in-the-woods’ cash cow genre. But it's still a pretty good movie to take for a ride.
