Horror features a variety of sub-genres, each with their own unique charms and despicable, unsightly scenes.

One that has sprouted considerably more since the 1990s is horror movies based on cryptids. A cryptid is defined as any animal or beast that may or may not exist. Think Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, the undoubted King Mothman, or any variety of antlered things.

A Redditor searching for the best in cryptic horror posed the question, and one film in particular received immense love from those seeking the unimaginable in their horror. The ritual Released in 2017 on Netflix to positive reviews, and it’s fair to say that it has a place in the minds of audiences.

Following four friends seeking to grant the last wishes of their recently deceased friend by walking through the dense forests of Kungsleden in Sweden, they soon discover that unimaginable horrors await them. His descent into madness comes with truly horrific moments and a cryptid that will long live in your memory.

The great cryptid in The ritual is a Jötunn, a Norse mythological being that comes from none other than the trickster god Loki. Stacked with legs, antlers, and a suitably pointed spine, the Jötunn sticks firmly in viewers’ memories.

The monster is barely shown in The ritual, adding a lot to the intrigue around the creature, as well as keeping it special for viewers when they get to see it for the first time. Better yet, the Jötunn was made with a good mix of practical and special effects.

The ritual is currently available to stream on Netflix and was based on a book of the same name.
