This is definitely in the category of atmospheric horror and, thought it isn't found footage in any way, owes a lot to the Blair Witch Project - creepy woods, creepy house in the woods, creepy things made out of wood - you get the idea. The Ritual does have more people, and the creature is truly unique out the massive amounts of horror films I have seen (and unnerving).
