Ready or Not

Ready or Not ★★★

2019 Ranked

Captures the dumb-fun of You're Next but feels emotionally uneven. My usual complaints with horror films apply—wish the characters were stronger, wish the gore mattered, wish it decided if it was a comedy or a cult film, wish the cult-aspects made more sense, wish the script had some revision (everyone sounded like they were written by the same person, lots of hollow swearing and cursing and fuck-if-I-know why).

It was fun, though, and if this is your bag I'm sure you'll dig it. Samara Weaving can certainly carry a film and it's always good to see Andie MacDowell and Henry Czerny in things.
