Mary Kincaid

On August 21, 2019, Ready or Not, a comedy thriller about an unsuspecting bride who gets hunted by the family of her groom, released. Viewers may watch it in countless theaters across the nation. It stars Samara Weaving as Grace, the bride, and Mark O’Brien as Alex, the husband with the twisted family.
Grace lives a tough life, abandoned by her family. When she marries Alex Le Domas, it seems that her troubles may finally end. Then, on her wedding night, the family plays a twisted game of hide and seek. They hunt Grace around their mansion, determined to kill her before sunrise so that Satan will have mercy upon them.
If you enjoy violence with lots of laughs, Ready or Not is the perfect movie for you. Throughout the movie, hilarious moments are placed after gruesome deaths to lighten the mood. All of the gags truly dampen the horror aspect of the film; however, audiences may find themselves on the edge of their seats, ready to see what happens next.
If you prefer pure horror over comedy, Ready or Not may not satisfy you. The suspense in the movie remains high at all times, but viewers may not find themselves legitimately scared during the movie.
Nonetheless, blood and guts remain plentiful in this movie. Ready or Not truly deserves its R-rating; the generous amounts of vulgar language are accompanied by arrows through eyes and nails through hands. In order to see this movie in theatres, you must be 17 years old, or you may view it with someone 21 years or older.
On IMDb, Ready or Not owns a rating of 7.2/10. The movie remains nominated for Fresh Blood Award at Fantasy Film Fest; the world received it quite well.
Overall, this movie proves perfect for comedy-addicts or “slightly scary” horror-addicts. People may criticize the film, but there is no doubt that Ready or Not remains an innovative and unique movie.
