    ★★★

    No, it did not.

    That’s not  to say it’s a bad movie - it’s just not much of a horror film. Leans much harder into the comedy aspects than anything scary.

    Ready or Not

    ★★★★

    Ready or Not is damn near a perfect popcorn movie. Now, it's not a perfect movie - but it's a perfect way to spend an afternoon or evening in a dark theater. It doesn't take itself too seriously, but it's a huge amount of fun. Cults, devils, gore, and games. What's not to like? It's got the spirit of a 70s B-movie but the gloss of a moderately-budgeted modern studio film. The guys who produced and directed it also directed…
