    Ready or Not

    Strong from start to finish.

    Ready or Not is a game based horror film that packs an edgy punch, without sacrificing elegance in filmmaking.  Very strong from start to finish.  The writing and acting is the cornerstone of this movie, but built even stronger with incredible cinematography and effects.

    This movie blends dark humor with strong horror elements almost as wel as it blends it's SFX and Visual Effects.

    A well presented, well directed "B-Movie."

    I have heard the term "B movie" thrown around alot about Piranha.  Especially for remakes.  But the original really has qualities that are far superior to any B movie I have seen.  This film is a well crafted film.  Dare I even say, there were some pretty good acting performances that stood out.  The cinematography is truly what standa out the most about this movie.  The underwater scenes were very well done and cinematic.…
