When a young bride (Samara Weaving) marries into a ridiculously rich and delightfully deranged family, her wedding night becomes her worst nightmare as she's forced to play a lethal game of hide-and-seek and must fight to stay alive.
Co-starring Adam Brody, Mark O'Brien, Henry Czerny and Andie Macdowell, Ready Or Not is a wicked comedy-thriller that elevates the phrase "till death do us part" to shocking new heights!
Ready Or Not is not only the title of this film but also what you should be asking yourself and others before watching as this movie is a gritty, violent, creepy and fun-filled ride from start to finish so buckle up, grab some popcorn and turn out the lights as this movie is sure to leave a lasting impression. Whether or not you're a hardcore horror fan or someone who just watches the odd one from time to time this film is a must-see and takes the idea of how daunting it can be to meeting the family you have married into and upping the ante to new levels of fear and anxiety.
Starring Samara Weaving who is well adept at being in the horror genre from titles such as The Babysitter, Mayhem and Ash Vs Evil Dead. She plays Grace who is the main protagonist who is thrown into a nightmare like game of Hide-and-Seek to fight for her own survival from the family she has married into as it is their family tradition of welcoming in the new family members. The main thing that I find makes comedy-horror movies so cringe is when they take themselves too seriously and yet try to deliver humour mixed in but this movie succeeds in knowing what it is and what it is trying to achieve and that is just an entertaining ride that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Samara weaving plays the role of Grace very well and this is to date, in my opinion, her best work.
The setting of this film is based in a creepy mansion that is full of great set pieces and suits the theme of the film to a tee. This film also stars Adam Brody who has an amazing part and really makes sense as to why he is the way is without saying too much to spoiler anything and Mark O'Brien, Henry Czerny and Andie MacDowell who although they are seen throughout the movie it doesn't really give them any great character building or anything really pushing for their roles. This is a great movie and a good start for horror movies of 2020 so make sure you see this one if you are a horror fan and like films that are dark and intense. I can see myself watching this movie again at some point as it really is an entertaining rollercoaster of a film.
