Ready or Not

Ready or Not ★★★★½

"Hail Satan!"

Hear me out. I know this movie doesn't really deserve a 9/10 rating. The script is cheesy, some of the acting is really flat, it's riddled with horror tropes, and the color grading is god ugly. But even after all that and more, this film is decidedly brilliant, standing out compared to others in its genre in that it is entirely, boldly unapologetic. Ready or Not shines most brightly when it is at its most absurd. The film takes "irrational" as a complement, thriving off of an idea that is proudly nonsensical and never letting up. Not to mention Samara Weaving's absolutely fantastic performance, which has genuinely become one of my favorites of the year. Simply put, this film is batshit crazy, and I think that's wonderful.
