Author: Adam Nevill.
Adam Nevill's third novel is titled The Ritual. This book was released by Pan Mcmillan in May of 2011 and the book reviewed here is an uncorrected book proof. Few errors inhabit this novel, but something else does. There is a mythical pagan beast with horns lurking about that haunts an isolated Swedish forest. It waits for the unwary to happen by. Hutch, Phil, Dom and Luke are the unwary and all four of them are taking a break from their weary work and family lives. These problems are the least of their worries when the beast looks to sacrifice them to unseen gods. The ending of The Ritual is bloody and arguably a tragic one as the protagonist must return to a dreary sterile world of predictability from one of true terror. Certain themes within Nevill's novel hint at this slightly unsettling conclusion.

The latest additions to the Collection lead of with the 1971 cult favorite Harold and Maude, directed by Hal Ashby, about a death-obsessed young man and a free-spirited older woman who form quite the unusual bond. Alambrista!, directed by Robert M. Young, is a gripping take on the immigration story that, rather than going the route of sentimentality tells its story via harsh truths and focus. Director Mario Monicelli's The Organizer is a tale focused on the working class of a textile factory that, through an unlikely ally, are able to rally together as one. Then there is A Hollis Frampton Odyssey. Frampton was an icon of the American Avant-Garde and this release contains twenty-four of his films, ranging from 1966 to »
