Ready Or Not follows a young bride (Samara Weaving) as she joins her new husband’s (Mark O’Brien) rich, eccentric family (Adam Brody, Henry Czerny, Andie MacDowell) in a time-honored tradition that turns into a lethal game with everyone fighting for their survival.
The poster for Ready Or Not led me to believe a corseted Margot Robbie had opted to star in a period thriller filled with ammo, murder and mayhem. While we do get the tightly-bound dress and bloody killings, the film stars Robbie lookalike Samara Weaving, niece to Hugo Weaving, and is set in modern day. Directed by horror veterans Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett and written by Guy Busick and Ryan Murphy (not that Ryan Murphy), Ready Or Not offers a fun, nearly non-stop splatterfest.

Weaving plays Grace, a nice, normal woman who has said “yes” to marry Alex Le Domas (Mark O’Brien), an heir to a vast family fortune built from success in selling games. Alex’s eccentric clan, none of whom exhibit anything close to real human behavior, have an odd tradition of forcing newly wedded in-laws into playing a midnight game with them. Should she survive the night, she gains acceptance into the family.
Sometimes the games are innocuous, but once in a while, through an odd selection process, they choose “Hide And Seek” in which the bride must hide from everyone until sunrise in order to win. If they fail to find her, they all die. It seems the family wealth involved signing a deal with the devil with deadly games on the menu whether they like it or not. Clearly a satire about the 1% and the lengths they go to in order to retain their wealth, the film gets points for its unshakeable nerve and Weaving’s performance, but the filmmakers make the same point over and over.
The filmmakers have assembled a talented, interesting cast as the Le Domas family, including Andy MacDowell, Adam Brody, Henry Czerny and Nicky Guadagni as spiky-haired Aunt Helene. Aside from our protagonist, you won’t care about anybody else since they operate as pieces on the writers’ chessboard in order to prove to us that rich people suck.
Lucky for Weaving, she gets a showcase here, allowing our potential Final Girl to swear like a truck driver and pummel people into literal bloody pulp. I don’t want to come down too hard on this film, since Ready Or Not has a sense of fun and hating wealthy people seems to be all the rage these days. Even satires have to make us care about the people or else they play like essays.
If you are a huge fantasy fan, go in watching this with no expectations and you might enjoy it more.
