Continuing our watch of some of the best new horror out, we caught up with this horror farce that’s as much Clue as it is The Hills Have Eyes. And given that this was a fairly low-budget production with little int terms of actual star power, what these filmmakers pulled off is absolutely incredible. There’s some truly haunting and awful moments that are almost immediately followed by gut laughs at jokes that came straight from Fawlty Towers. Add to that a female lead, impeccably played by Samara Weaving, with loads of agency and pure emotional intensity that just jumps off the screen. This movie is a popcorn-chomping ride that also happens to have a lot of moral quandaries and thoughtfulness, and it makes it one of the best and most approachable new horror movies in recent years. Grab your card and meet up with us in Mr. LeBail’s chambers as we watch 2019’s Ready or Not on Macintosh & Maud Haven’t Seen What?!
