Soooo, after IRO recently put out some movie recommendations, I thought it may be fun to do a post with some of my own. Being almost exclusively stuck at home for months on end has resulted in me watching a LOT more movies and television shows than I normally would. Well, during this time I watched multiple movies that just so happened to have Samara Weaving in them, and I gotta say, I absolutely love this lady. ❤ She takes on some bloody, funny, offbeat roles and I am HERE for it. So, without further ado, here are my 4 movie recommendations for anyone looking for some ridiculous and over-the-top shenanigans with a healthy side of blood and mayhem, all starring Samara Weaving.
Ready or Not (2019)
A new bride gets more than she bargained for in this horror-comedy after marrying into a family with their own gaming empire. What initially seems like an eccentric, but mostly harmless family tradition, quickly spirals into a lethal game of hide and seek.
Guns Akimbo (2019)
Action movies aren’t usually my jam, but this action-comedy seemed so over the top that I just had to see it, and I’m so glad I did. After trolling the online forums of an underground murder fight club of sorts called Skizm, Miles (played by Daniel Radcliffe) gets forcibly thrown into the mix. With guns literally bolted to his hands and the game’s deadliest, batshit crazy killer (Samara Weaving’s character Nix) on his trail, shit gets real fast.
The Babysitter (2017)
What seems to be your typical teen comedy about a kid and his awesome babysitter quickly takes a turn toward the macabre in this horror-comedy.
Nothing like a movie about a virus during a pandemic, right?? Steven Yeun and Samara Weaving are stuck in an office building full of people and a fast-spreading virus that causes those who are infected to lose all inhibitions and give into rage, lust, and any other impulse with hilarious and horrific results.

So, that’s it for my batch of movie suggestions. Mr. Moth and I had a lot of fun watching these, but I am fully aware these movies are not going to be everyone’s cup of tea. However, if you’re looking for something fun and bloody and crazy, you just might wanna check ’em out. 😉
