The Red Book is a paranormal game from Mexico, through this game you can connect with spirits. It is similar to an Ouija board. To play this game you will need an old book with a red cover, without a picture on the cover. The lights should be off and the room lit only with red candles.

The question to start the ritual is; “Red book, Can I join your game?” The book will reveal the answers to all your questions… but what if your host is an evil entity with a thirst for blood?

Three friends decide to play The Red Book Game. What they don’t know is that in the house evil is waiting to be released. A long time ago a witch died as part of a satanic ritual. Every question they ask, they get closer and closer to her…


The Red Book Ritual was released on VOD by genre specialists Black Mandala on September 13, 2022. Rent or buy via Amazon Prime


“The wrap-around segment actually features a lot more than most in this type of anthology movie. The acting is a bit cheesy during these parts but it does create some decent scares at times. The Red Book Ritual is a really strong horror anthology that honestly doesn’t have a single bad segment, at the worst this ranges from decent to very good.” 4 out of 5, Nerdly
