‘Ready or Not’ takes you favorite childhood game and turns it into a nightmare. Samara Weaving excels at playing an unlucky bride who tries to survive her wedding night gone to hell. The film is silly yet scary enough to impress both comedy and horror fans alike.

[Rating: Swiss Fist] A good-natured attempt to humanize a very real monstrosity running rampant through the current hell-scape that is this cursed year of 2019, Hot Air doesn’t stumble so much as it breaks both legs and suffers a heart attack right out of the starting gate.
