Ready or Not

Ready or Not ★★★½

Enjoyable and easily digestible horror movie with a philosophic bent against the rich that causes it to rise above some of its lesser brethren. I think for me the best part of this (which I can scarcely believe I'm saying) is the performance from Adam Brody who manages to absolutely nail the dead eyed alcoholic while also making him comedic.

I do have issues with the ending though - there is, to me, a clear alternative that would have worked better. But I suppose the thinking was after the hour and a half we'd seen, the audience would be expecting what we got.

I did enjoy that the murderers here were portrayed as comically incompetent - given this scenario, I think one could expect no less. I also enjoyed Samara Weaving, though perhaps not as much as others - I don't expect within a year that I will remember anything about her performance.

All in all, if you're looking for a fun horror movie that doesn't insult your intelligence, this one fits the bill.
