  • Weaving comes alive as a hilarious and deeply macabre play on the "final girl" archetype, and it's nothing short of cathartic to cheer her on and echo the rage that quickly consumes and empowers her.

  • There's no attempt to be seriously disturbing, or to offer us anything more than a macabre good time. Still, on that level the film delivers.

  • [A] witty, endlessly suspenseful US slasher movie that critiques privilege and entitlement.

    September 28, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • [A] delicious romp with a game heroine that never takes itself too seriously, and has some pointed things to say about the class system.

  • There's little nuance in Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett's horror-comedy take on class warfare, but it's Weaving's touch of pure anger that makes it feel like more than just your average shlocky gorefest.

  • It's not pretty, but it's bloody good fun.

Audience Reviews for Ready or Not

    Hollywood loves demonizing the rich and this movie about marrying into wealth is dripping in ecstasy and blood. Australia actor, and budding star, Samara Weaving, spends her wedding night trying to survive a deadly game of hide and seek as her in-laws try to kill her to fulfill a morbid family tradition. It's all preposterous except as horror-fantasy-satire.

    Incredibly fun and entertaining, Ready or Not is an intense and thrilling horror-comedy. When Grace marries into the Le Domas family she has to participate in an eccentric family tradition of playing a game on the wedding night, but unbeknownst to her the game selected will pit her against the family in a deadly contest of survival. Samara Weaving gives an excellent performance, and is backed by a strong supporting cast that includes Adam Brody, Andie MacDowell, Henry Czerny, and Melanie Scrofano. And the script is especially well-written; particularly in how it sets up the game and works in several twists and turns. The dark comedy is also really good, with the family bickers between themselves and struggle with the weaponry that they have to use for the game. Wickedly funny, Ready or Not delivers scares, thills, and laughs aplenty.

    Positives: Original horror plot, costume design, and the soundtrack Negatives​: Sometimes falls into horror movie cliche's

    It's neither as terrifying or as thrilling as I was expecting. I kept waiting for the protagonist's transition from the hunted to the hunter, but it never quite happened. Of course, she's saved at the end, but it's more due to the efforts of other character/s than herself. The writing lacks the clever tricks for survival. The actress playing the protagonist didn't suit the part.
