Three 6th grade boys ditch school and embark on an epic journey while carrying accidentally stolen drugs, being hunted by teenage girls, and trying to make their way home in time for a long-awaited party.
Keith L. Williams,
A couple travels to Sweden to visit a rural hometown's fabled mid-summer festival. What begins as an idyllic retreat quickly devolves into an increasingly violent and bizarre competition at the hands of a pagan cult.
READY OR NOT follows a young bride (Samara Weaving) as she joins her new husband's (Mark O'Brien) rich, eccentric family (Adam Brody, Henry Czerny, Andie MacDowell) in a time-honored tradition that turns into a lethal game with everyone fighting for their survival.

While Grace is scurrying around on her knees in the kitchen hiding from the Butler, he puts a kettle on the stove and lights the gas. Less than 15 seconds later, the kettle begins to whistle to show that the water has boiled. No kettle could boil in such a short period of time. See more »

At a parsimonious 91 minutes, Ready or Not is about half as much of a movie as It Chapter Two, which trundles in at an unceremonious 169 minutes. If you consider the ticket was purchased with a student ID for a discount and a free 44oz. popcorn with buttery topping, it's safe to say Ready or Not is the clear winner of this summer's Battle for Your Dark Comedy Hard-earned Bucks.
What if you were dirt poor and wanted to become rich through marriage to a family so wealthy they could kill some people now and then and not have any repercussions, either moral, ethical, or legal? It might involve sacrificing some of your own morality or sense of ethics, perhaps even a deal with the devil, as you learn more about what it takes to become part of an elite ruling class, with little to worry about other than what bottle of wine to quaff next.
It's a slight gore-fest, but nothing nasty like a Saw flick or a Hostel pic. It might even be a more feminist statement than Mad Max: Fury Road, and for a dark comedy, it has a relatively bright ending.
