On August 21, Samara Weaving, Andie MacDowell, and Mark O’Brien will engage in the deadliest game of Hide and Seek ever in Ready or Not, a reverse home-invasion thriller that makes a pretty strong case for singlehood — or, at least, for staying off Tinder until they implement full background checks. In the film, Weaving plays Grace, the young woman who marries into the Le Domas family — a generations-old board game dynasty — only to find herself at the mercy of her new in-laws’ darkest tradition. It’s bloody, it’s cheeky, and it’s poised to be a real genre crowd-pleaser.

Ahead of the film’s release, Weaving, MacDowell, and O’Brien visited the RT studio to chat with editor Jacqueline Coley, describing how they might “horror-ize” other popular children’s games (hint: snakes are more versatile than we realized), recalling their own worst wedding experiences, and talking about the games they played on set — particularly one O’Brien introduced that “makes you want to kill yourself.” Also, Weaving explains why the day she spent covered in blood was the most fun — especially because the fake blood was delicious.
