Ending of The Ritual explained:
When all the four friends realise the presence of a monster in the forest, it becomes too late. The monster starts killing one by one, and we see Luke be the only one left alive. He starts feeling guilty by seeing his friends getting killed by the monster one by one. It becomes very pathetic for the viewers to see so many deaths one after the other.
At the end of the story, we see Luke fighting with the monster face to face. He is trying to escape from the forest but somehow fails. The structure of the demon monster gets revealed in the story. It’s too big when compared to what Luke thought earlier. At the beginning of their fight, the demon starts winning due to his size, which is too big compared to Luke. The demon monster starts attacking Luke again and again, and we see him falling on the ground, to be very close to death. Luke starts screaming at the demon, and it shows as if he wants to end all the cruelty and dangerous events that going on in the forest. Finally, Luke stands on his own feet and attacks the demon monster with an axe. Somehow Luke manages to run out of the forest, and fortunately, the demon doesn’t follow him. The demon doesn’t kill Luke, and that could be because the monster wants Luke to worship him like the villagers. At the end of the film, we see Luke be the ultimate hero.
The Ritual is such a horror movie that it got a huge positive response from the audience. The viewers are waiting for the second part of the film (if anything decided) to get released.
