Ready or Not (2019) Revisited – Horror Movie Review

The new episode of the Best Horror Party Movies video series looks back at Radio Silence’s 2019 film Ready or Not

A new episode of our Best Horror Party Movies video series has just been released, and with this one we’re looking at a relatively recent movie: the 2019 release Ready or Not (watch it HERE), which was directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, who have gone on to direct Scream (2022) and Scream VI. To find out how we party to their 2019 movie, check out the video embedded above!

Scripted by Guy Busick (who has followed the directors to the Scream franchise and their upcoming Universal Monsters movie) and R. Christopher Murphy, Ready or Not has the following synopsis: A young woman is invited on the night of her wedding by her new husband’s rich, eccentric family to participate in a time-honored tradition that turns into a lethal game with everyone fighting for their survival.

The film stars Samara Weaving, Adam Brody, Mark O’Brien, Elyse Levesque, Henry Czerny, and Andie MacDowell.

Here’s what the Best Horror Party Movies series is all about: Welcome to the Best Horror Party Movies where we single out the BEST horror movies to watch with a couple of drinks and some buddies in tow, even if it’s a “watch party”. Hence movies that are intentionally or unintentionally funny, that are extreme, fast paced, goofy, and raunchy – all the fun times toppings in the house! Films you can pay attention to or you can have in the back ground. We even tossed a party game in there, one tailored to each episode’s selection, including recommended “doses” for toasting (or roasting) all the sleaze, cheese, guts and gore you can stuff into your cranium. So get in here and get crazy… ‘cuz it’s a HORROR PARTY!

The Ready or Not episode of Best Horror Party Movies was Written, Narrated/Hosted, and Edited by Mike Conway, Produced by John Fallon, and Executive Produced by Berge Garabedian.
