Horror comedy that understands just what it is, with a wink and a slash. Read more

I enjoyed this movie because it played on good old child-like fun with a twist of horror in there. Read more

Ready or Not cleverly balances horror and comedy in a way that makes for one of the freshest films of the summer. Directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett have crafted a film that's a lot of gory fun, while actress Samara Weaving proves herself a Goddess, commanding the screen and making for one of the most memorable on-screen characters in modern horror history.

One of 2019’s biggest and most exciting surprises. It’s bloody and well structured. There’s something to be said for sitting back and vibing to the gory fun in this. Read more

While Ready or Not may not quite match the artistry of something like A Quiet Place, Hereditary, or this year’s Hereditary follow-up, Midsommar, it’s a welcome addition to the genre and one of the most entertaining moviegoing experiences of 2019. Read more

Gleefully schlocky and willing to wear its social commentary on its sleeve, Ready or Not makes for a wonderfully bonkers and exhilarating thrill ride. Read more

Ready or Not is a dark and atmospheric horror/comedy with some solid kills, a superb setting, sumptuous visuals, a very likable main character and plenty of sly and sneaky grins. It's not high art nor the next big thing in horror, neither does it pretend to be. It's just an extremely fun and well-made horror flick, executed to perfection. Read more

It has lots of bloody and close-up killing scenes, but given its concept, all of these were important to unfold the story in the exact same pattern for us to not lose track of events that are about to occur. Read more

A raucous, rambunctious, gory and gratuitous black comedy that will have you wincing and in stitches in equal measure. Read more

Ready or Not is an exciting and witty addition to the horror comedy genre. This is largely due to the script and the excellent cast. Read more

In truth, we are before a deeply nuts fusion of comedy and horror that is something you should go for, even considering its final stage sillier than expected. Read more

For a film of its genre – either black comedy or light horror, take your pick – Ready or Not doesn’t do a lot wrong. Perhaps its biggest flaw is the lack of plot development. Read more

Even with the clever turns and cheeky performances, the film lacks substance. Read more

A remarkably strong ending also fixes many of the storyline and pacing issues. Read more

Ready or Not takes its far-fetched premise, runs with it and never looks back, and audiences should do the same. Read more

If Samara Weaving is a genre to herself, Ready or Not is the weakest of the three horror movies she's thus far headlined, but as usual she's the best thing about the movie. Read more

Ready or Not is bloederig, absurd maar bovenal zeer vermakelijk. Read more

Sorry We Missed You bouwt rustig op, maar de schrijnende situatie waarin het gezin van Ricky en Abby in verstrikt raken wordt steeds duidelijker tot aan het pijnlijke slot aan toe. Read more

Crawl & Pet Sematary krijgen verrassend concurrentie van deze Ready or Not in het horrorgenre dit jaar, want de horrorthriller met heel wat Rated R gore & een stevig plot kan je wel de verrassing van het jaar noemen. Read more

Simpel, maar effectief is de beste manier om de film te omschrijven. In een genre waar veel teleurstellingen voorbijkomen is deze afwisseling verfrissend. Read more

Samara Weaving lijkt helemaal in haar nopjes te zijn in deze rol en dat draagt zeker bij aan het kijkplezier. Hoewel het vlotte tempo en de overtuigende special effects eveneens daaraan bijdragen. Read more

Ready or Not is misschien wel de wreedaardige versie van het Assepoester-sprookje. Maar hier was ultieme entertainment het hoofddoel. En daar zijn ze voor mij persoonlijk wel degelijk in geslaagd. Read more

Ready or Not is een bloederig, maar verdomd vermakelijk potje verstoppertje spelen! Read more

Hier dus geen scherpe satire tussen de pure horror, maar slechts een lekker lompe film die zijn idiote premisse uitwerkt met veel goedkope schrikmomenten. Read more
