Watch: The Unsettling Trailer for Horror Film 'Come Out and Play' Features a Murderous Gang of Children

Arriving in theaters next month after having premiered at Toronto in 2012, the horror film “Come Out and Play” stars Ebon Moss-Bachrach (“Lola Versus”) and Vinessa Shaw (“Two Lovers”) as Francis and Beth, a happy couple who visit Mexico for a romantic getaway. The couple venture to a secluded island where they’re greeted by a beautiful beach filled with children playing — children, they discover, but no adults, and a neighborhood that seems to have been abandoned in distress.  After witnessing the violent death of an old man at the hands of the children, the two realize that in order to survive, they’ll have to escape. Ah, murderous kiddies.

The film is directed by Belarus-born filmmaker Makinov and is based on Juan José Plan’s 1976 Spanish horror film “Who Can Kill a Child?” “Come Out and Play” will be released in select theaters on March 22nd and is currently available on iTunes and VOD.

@THOR. Mostly I implied it sounds like the kind of "meta discourse" (for lack of better words) Roth would use/build. He's not alone mind you, in fact I'd say it's a common issue in recent horror. Also I disagree on "Roth known for his wit and inventive style" and the first pic form Green Inferno looks very cheap so…

Thanks for language clarifications though. In any case whatever the grammar I'm not convinced by the "manifesto" itself. Beside, it could work if only he wasn't promoting a remake let alone the remake of a still very effective film from the 70's.


Those interested (?) may want to check the so-called "manifesto" from said Makinov :
Is it just me or it's weirdly reminiscent of the kind of stuff Eli Roth would say during promo.
