There are so many jokes about awful in-laws but on her wedding night Grace (Weaving) is about to find out how terrible hers are, when she is introduced to a brutal family wedding tradition.
In Ready or Not games a re taken way too serious as a young bride is caught in the dangerous game of a wealthy family which may or may not be cursed to play the game out. The concept is interesting and is played out well, especially due to Weaving (The babysitter, 2017), a bright new(ish) star leaving promise of becoming quite a horror queen. The movie keeps you guessing; will he or won’t he? Are they or are they not? And Weaving keeps you hooked as the tough but sweet bride finding herself fighting for her life on the wedding night. Good dark fun.
The film’s writers, Guy Busick and Ryan Murphy, cameo at (32:16) as the crossbow experts in the YouTube video.
