      Frank Scheck Hollywood Reporter Despite its familiar genre trappings, this nastily efficient horror film delivers genuine chills. Mar 22, 2013 Full Review Marjorie Baumgarten Austin Chronicle Come Out and Play is a good example of how to eke out film thrills with a minimum of elements. Makinov should prove to be a filmmaker to watch. Rated: 3/5 Mar 22, 2013 Full Review Jeannette Catsoulis New York Times The film maintains a deliberately unhurried pace that builds tension naturally and with minimum interference from the soundtrack. Rated: 4/5 Mar 21, 2013 Full Review Patrick Cavanaugh The Wolfman Cometh Keeps you invested if only to discover what's really happening in the story, only to fall apart in its finale. Rated: 2/5 Sep 22, 2023 Full Review Debbie Lynn Elias Behind The Lens [Makinov] creates a craving within, tapping into the human nature of curiosity, begging you to Come Out And Play. But sadly, he never tells you why, leaving you frustrated and yearning for answers. Nov 27, 2019 Full Review Ben Nicholson CineVue The film loses its way once the stakes are raised, providing uninspired, generic fare without anything to invest in.

      Audience Member An impressive title for a thriller, and, well, that's it! Well, I neither read the book, nor saw the old film. But I find this theme is very interesting and at the end of the watch I kind of disappointed. Of course it is a low budget film, which involves little kids in a bad light, but that does not mean they should completely censor the violence. I'm disappointed with those serious avoidance which very essential for a film like this. I agree the children performing such act should not be shown, but the theme was promised something and delivered nothing. On that perspective anyone would be frustrated if they came here to see a good thriller. So you can call it a horror-thriller for the families, that's how it looks. It is the story of an American couple with the seven months pregnant visits a tourist island destination in Mexico and soon finds the town is deserted. While looking for other souls, they are targeted by those who were the reason for the scenario of the island. Then begins the run and chasing game, and how it all ends revealed with a tiny twist. As I feared the film failed to impress me, but there might be a few who would enjoy it better than me. So all I'm saying is just skip it if you're seeking 'Hatchet' kind of film, this is no way near to that. For a 30-35 years ago film, it might have worked better, but this is an outdated story to take place in the present world. The theme was fantastic, but I just wanted a different story and upgraded with the new stuffs. Though I must appreciate the director who has done multiple task for this film to happen. Finally, I want to clear that it is not a bad film of the year or decade or ever, but just too soft for its genre, that's all. 5/10 Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member this movie is very disturbing and not in a good horror/scary way...we watched it for you so you'll never have to watch're welcome. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member This is the only movie I have taken my time to review, so please head my words, skip this movie, star at a blank screen for an hour, and you'll get the jist of the movie. I think anyone that studies film should watch this to see how not to make a movie. This movie is the worst, like it deserves an award for how bad it is. No redeeming qualities, worst movie I have ever watched. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Interesting concept and it looks decent enough, plus the kids did come off as super creepy. It does kinda leave it on a cliffhanger though as to what was actually going on. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a total ripoff of Children of the Corn :( Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Updated version of WHO CAN KILL A CHILD. Not that the original need to be remade. In the end, the director goes there. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
