Ready or Not (2019)

Rated: R - Runtime: 95 min
tesg’s Rating: Three stars (out of four)

A girl marries into a rich elite family that has a curse of sorts.  When you marry into this family, you are required to play a game chosen at random by a mysterious box at midnight.  No big deal...unless you draw Hide and Seek,  Then the family must kill you before dawn or they all blow up like ginormous zits.

So you’ve got the feisty bride trying to save herself, the creepy family trying to save themselves, and a big old fabulous house to chase and run and hide and stuff in.  Andie McDowell pretty much steals every scene she’s in as the deliciously evil family matriarch.  There’s lots of dark humor, and the movie ends on a great one-liner.
