REVIEW: Ready Or Not

Published

Ready or Not

A game of hide and seek always seemed like a good premise for a horror movie, and many horror films have taken the spirit of the game while approaching the telling of their story.

‘Ready or Not’ is one such film, and it puts a gloriously gory spin on the age-old game.

Starring Samara Weaving, Adam Brody, Andie MacDowell, Mark O’Brien, and Henry Czerny, the film tells the story of: “Grace couldn’t be happier after she marries the man of her dreams at his family’s luxurious estate. There’s just one catch — she must now hide from midnight until dawn while her new in-laws hunt her down with guns, crossbows and other weapons. As Grace desperately tries to survive the night, she soon finds a way to turn the tables on her not-so-lovable relatives.”

Sprinkle in a little cult worship, a sacrifice ritual, and some satanic worship and this film’s meat is bloodier than most.

Grace is thrust into an awful family ritual that, thanks to the bad draw of a horrible card during a game, and now has to survive once she realizes the innocent game she has known as a child is something far more sinister, and deadly.

While it seems ridiculous and campy at first glance, Ready or Not has a general understanding of how to properly flow, adding in touches of comedy, suspense, and some gory kills that keep the film moving along and void of any boring lapses.

The film was fun to watch, and kept me engaged from start to finish, making this an easy recommendation to anyone looking to for a cool horror flick to check out.
