Marriage can be a blessing or a curse. Sometimes, deep-seated marital issues don’t manifest until years after signing the license. However, for Grace, played by Samara Weaving (Mayhem, The Babysitter), such revelations come much sooner, like at the reception.

In Ready or Not, Grace joins her husband Alex Le Domas, played by Mark O’Brien (Arrival, Bad Times at the El Royale), and his family for a newlywed tradition—a game. It all seems trivial until Hide and Seek is selected, and the family seems all too eager to play. Grace, who scurries off to hide, can only win by remaining hidden until dawn. Unbeknownst to her, the family grabs their weapons and hunts to ensure that doesn’t happen.

What unfolds is horrific hilarity where Grace does all she can stay alive while the family fails horribly at winning. There are buckets of blood and laughs—often mixed into one concoction.

Ready or Not was written by Guy Busick and Ryan Murphy with Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett directing. The movie stars Weaving, O’Brien, Adam Brody, Henry Czerny, Melanie Scrofano, and more. Ready or Not hits theaters August 22 in the U.S.
