Ready or Not movie review - Aussieboyreviews


It’s definitely entertaining, thrilling and has some incredibly funny moments, but Ready or Not is more of an older teens movie than for kids. There’s lots of violence and tension in this horror-comedy.


On a bride’s wedding night, her new husband’s family force her to participate in a ritualistic game that turns to be bloody and sinister.

Aussie boy's thoughts

Within the game of this light-hearted plus thrilling horror film, viewers will be laughing, screaming and enjoying the black humour. Also thanks to the gore and tension, Ready or Not is a great way entering the horror-comedy genre, despite its satisfactory pace.

Despite the standard pace of the film, the smartly designed story is occupied with simply splendid acting from all characters which really produces the comedic effect. The film’s previews undeniably imply that this story is a pretty simple idea, but an unforgettable recommendation for top cult movie lovers. However, even though Ready or Not is engaging, it’s all totally predictable.

Crowds looking for a violent ritual thriller both comedically scary and darkly hysterical should definitely select this replayable amusement. Yet, everyone should keep in their mind that the gory effects and Samara Weaving’s performance in Ready or Not is unequivocally not for everyone, but those who watch it will usually have enjoyed the film’s intention.
