  • 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.

  • Ready or Not is remarkably successful at hitting its own sweet spot for such a modest movie.

    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.

    Ready or Not is a refreshing horror film. It's funny and self aware, unlike the standard films coming out of Hollywood. The cast is strong, and the storyline is well constructed. The standard horror clichés sink it down slightly from time to time, but these are only small diminishes on a great film. 2019 had a strong horror line-up of horror films, and this is right at the top. The casting of Weaver was the correct choice, much similar to You're Next. It doesn't hurt to have a strong female lead, compared to the standard victim and damsel in distress. That ending is well done and fitting to the entire film. The filmmakers have a bright future if they can maintain this quality, and budget restraints. 04/01/2020

    I've never kept it secret that I have a personal issue with Samara Weaving, but I try to keep things like that out of my mind, and, even though I know it's impossible to be truly objective about something as subjective as art, at least attempt to be impartial. And bearing that in mind, Ready or Not is... Okay. Pretty good even. Disappointing, if I'm honest, given the hype and the trailer, but still. Pretty good.
