Ready or Not

Ready or Not ★★★★½

I was expecting/hoping for something bananas with this one, but instead I got a damn fine thriller. And it’s a little bananas too.

Part of what Radio Silence does best is their ability to keep things narratively and visually fresh throughout due to their pacing.  Too long is never spent in one location or with one character, new elements are continually added in, and the dynamics are constantly shifting. 

The dialogue is sharp, biting, and often hilarious.  There’s some great brutally dark comedic sight gags too.   I really liked the gothic production design and stylization, which I thought worked perfectly for this story.
