Ready or Not (2019) | Ratings & Reviews

"Ready or Not is rambunctious fun that doesn’t take itself at all seriously but delivers an assuredly white-knuckle ride."

New Zealand ListenerNew Zealand Listener

"Ready or Not does exactly what you want it to. There's plenty of laughs, a couple of well assembled jump-scares, tonnes of gore and a gratifying absence of morality or sermonising. Recommended."


"As the bungling archetypes run riot within the mansion, it's clear that this is a horror that knows its strengths and undeniably operates best in its more playful moments. The result is loads of bloody fun."

New Zealand HeraldNew Zealand Herald

"Ready has a fine time with its setting... and Weaving is sharp enough to play things straight as the ensemble around her goes for the occasional laugh."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"This deranged and darkly comedic thriller... packs subversive pleasures aplenty, exaggerating the anxieties of marrying into an unfamiliar family by confronting its unsuspecting bride with a worst-case set of in-laws."


"In a year filled with underwhelming horror films, it's ultimately more of the same, a game where the biggest loser is the audience."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"As games go, this one's a little too easy to outfox, but it's worth playing if you need a quick diversion, or if the chess moves of The Favourite felt overly vicious - Ready or Not is pure checkers."

Time OutTime Out

"Wickedly entertaining from start to finish, and painted with enough fresh personality to resolve into something more than the sum of its parts."


"Relentless and thoroughly preposterous, Guy Busick and R. Christopher Murphy's script hews to its own batty logic, its frantic pacing peppered with morbid humour."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

""The Most Dangerous Game" with notes of "Rosemary's Baby" and the sassy, snarky 'tude of "Heathers.""
