    Ready or Not, the slasher film based on the school yard game of Hide & Seek, is fun black comedy that takes a shot at the filthy rich, presents them as having made deals with the devil, and of course lacking in empathy as they go through a mad ritual that puts our heroine, played by Samara Weaving, in their crosshairs after she marries into the family. Not entirely unpredictable - you can easily see some of the gags coming, and it would definitely be more thrilling if you saw it without knowing what you were watching - the flick wins you over with its deadpan deliveries and the basic fact that even to the characters, this set-up is absurd. The events are thriller-horror. The reactions are comedy. And it's refreshing to see that not everyone in the family is into it, though these may only be gradations of monstrosity rather than a case of white hats among the black hats. Weaving is quite effective whether in love, in fear for her life, or angry as hell, and well-supported by the other performers (including Canada's own Mark O'Brien who I'd love to see more of on the silver screen, thanks). This one is for anyone who's seen their relationship threatened or destroyed by their significant other's family, the tug of blood sometimes too strong for the pull of love. We've all been there, right? (Body count may vary.) 3 months 1 week ago

    Main character’s demeanour didnt align with the rest of the family and namely the male partner. She was miscast. Her relationship was unbelievable so it was hard for me to buy in. Good thing she’s easy on the eyes and the movie is well made. 1 week 3 days ago
