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.
