Ready Or Not Plot Recap
Ready or Not follows Grace, a bride who seemingly has it made after marrying into the extremely wealthy family known as Le Domas. Grace is of course over the moon and she and her new husband look like they have got it made and are set for life. However, on the night of the Wedding, Grace discovers that in order to join the family fully, she must participate in a deadly game of hide and seek things soon turn violent.
Rules Of The Game
The rules are simple: as part of the family’s tradition, Grace must survive until dawn to become part of their collective. We discover that this is a long-running ritual that was established by their great grandfather Victor Le Domas and it involves placing a blank card into a special box that will then announce what game has to be played by the family’s newest member.
The box isn’t always evil and the majority of the time it will imprint something slightly less sinister such as snakes and ladders or kerplunk…that was a good un, wasn’t it. Mousetrap as well, that would’ve been a good movie, anyway with Grace it chose Hide and Seek and after getting a head start this becomes a deadly game of cat and mouse with the Family trying to track her down and return her to the family room where they will carry out a human sacrifice of her.
It’s prophecised that if the family fail to get Grace then they will die in horrendous deaths which happens throughout the film in some really over the top manners.
According to the rules, Alex, Grace’s husband is not allowed to help out in any form though this rule is broken by the end of the game, which ill get into later.
The Domas History
As for the family themselves, their rise began in the 19th century and their great grandfather Victor received the magic block that we see used from a game from a mysterious figure known as Mr. Le Bail. Victor not only beat Le Bail in a game of chance to gain the box but he was also given the insight as to how to earn a vast fortune from board games and so on
Ready Or Not Ending Explained
Throughout the movie, the family hunt Grace throughout their expansive mansion and eventually capture her and return her to the family room to carry out the ritual. The family, scared that they will all perish if they don’t sacrifice her to Mr. Le Bail begin to enact it, however, one of the members Daniel frees her before he is then killed by his own wife.
Becky, the mother of Alex tries to kill Grace and Alex watches on with a choice, he can either save his wife and kill his mother or make sure the ritual is completed and that his family is saved. He seemingly chooses the latter, however during the part in which he has to stab her through the heart he instead goes for her shoulder, ruining the ritual which causes the curse to come to fruition and each one of them dies, spraying blood and guts everywhere. We see a brief glimpse of Mr. Le Bail who clearly has come to collect on the family and it looks like that superstition wasn’t so silly after all.
Alex himself doesn’t even get to survive and hilariously he too explodes right after Grace says she wants a divorce which leaves her as the only survivor.
In the end, the police arrive at the mansion to find it on fire and Grace completely covered in blood. Though she will definitely have to explain all of the circumstances, there is a possibility that she will be able to prove that they hunted her throughout the night and that she, due to her recent marriage will inherit the entire fortune of the family making this end on a slightly happier ending than what could’ve happened.
