Ready or Not Brings Campy Gore to the Extreme

When you get married, that walk down the aisle is leading you towards a bright future. You’re joining a new family, and even if you don’t know them too well – there’s a chance they are a bit different than you. Often, couples will run into a few hurdles as they merge their families together, but what if it goes to the extreme?

Ready or Not takes that idea and flips it around and back again. Grace isn’t just joining one of the richest families, but one that has a dark past that she’s going to learn all about on her wedding night. It’s not just a dark secret that she will uncover, but something that could end her life that night.

The night after the wedding, the new bride has to draw a card of which game she’s going to play and after playing is officially welcomed into the family. It could be anything, chess, old maid or – Hide and Seek. Grace’s card is drawn and it is Hide and Seek, but not the game she thinks it is. Instead, her new in-laws are after her trying to kill her. They think that if she survives the night, their family will end. It doesn’t take long before Grace finds out the grave situation she is in and she’s in for the fight of her life.

Ready or Not is not a movie you should go into blindly, it has a lot of graphic violence, blood and cursing. But it’s entertainment in its purest form. The deaths throughout the movie are dealt with with a bit of humor and bring on a bit of a campy feel to the movie. Some are reminiscent of Shaun of the Dead or the death’s in the Kingsmen, and will have you laughing and cringing at the same time.

If you love gory movies, and ones that will make you laugh – Ready or Not will be great for a date night or movies with friends.
