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.
November 27, 2019
It's wildly entertaining and at a tight 90 minutes, it crackles with energy, never letting your attention waver.
October 25, 2019
Even by its own humble standards the plot is poorly worked out (a few lame attempts at social commentary criticising the rich are feeble in the extreme) and the dialogue is wretched.
October 24, 2019
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.
October 3, 2019
Laugh-out-loud moments with slight revulsion...rather than running out of steam, it keeps picking up pace and cracking along.
September 29, 2019
There is an elegance to the premise - an otherwise straightforward cat-and-mouse chase around a gothic mansion - and a satisfying clip to the rewardingly gory action.
September 28, 2019
[A] witty, endlessly suspenseful US slasher movie that critiques privilege and entitlement.
September 28, 2019
[A] delicious romp with a game heroine that never takes itself too seriously, and has some pointed things to say about the class system.
September 27, 2019
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.
September 26, 2019
It's not pretty, but it's bloody good fun.
September 25, 2019
[A] black comedy-thriller that blows up in your face, not once but regularly.
September 20, 2019
No-fat fun and a great new scream queen in Samara Weaving.
September 16, 2019
Anchored by a dazzling turn by Samara Weaving, Ready Or Not brilliantly fuses thrills, satire, laughs and horror. Don't count to 100 - just go and see.
September 9, 2019
This horror comedy muffs both the humor and the drama.
September 3, 2019
It's so good I wish it were better.
August 29, 2019
"-the makers of the killingly clumsy horror comedy "Ready or Not" aim to take all those games from Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, swap sexual for homicidal content."
August 27, 2019
This new offering in the hide-and-seek horror genre rests on a foundation of class warfare and achieves a deft balance between gruesome horror and black comedy.
August 23, 2019
[Weaving is] vulnerable, deadpan funny, scared and resolute, turning a role that could have been one-dimensional into something vibrant and authentic.
August 23, 2019
What a decadent blast to watch a comic takedown of the rich done with the rude energy of a horror thriller and the courage of its own manic anti-marriage convictions.
August 22, 2019
The real fun comes from the ways it subverts its time-tested story, balancing wry commentary and straightforward horror in its portrait of fumbling arrogance and curdled privilege.
