Beth and Francis, a young married couple, are on holiday when they venture to a beautiful, but highly remote, island.

Beth is pregnant and the two are hoping to enjoy their last vacation before their baby is born. When they arrive, they notice that while there are plenty of children present, the adults all seem to be missing.

Initially attributing this to the after effects of a recent festival, they quickly realise something far more sinister.....

Come and play, or Children Of The Corn take a holiday, isn't all that bad, it just struggles With the lack of talent from the adult cast.

They aren't convincing as a couple in peril, and their (his) decisions are pretty stupid ones, like for example, lets hole ourselves up in a cell, or lets stop driving after two minutes, because the children would never follow.

The children on the other hand as chilling, like a strange hybrid of Zombie and rabid dog. The explanation as of why the children are like this is a little convoluted, but you can almost forgive its shortcomings, and the ending, which you can see coming a mile off.

Its not a complete failure, there are some unsettling moments, but its forgettable stuff.

This tale of a holiday gone wrong is a remake of the infamous 70's cult shocker 'Who Can Kill A Child' and features a group of kids on a remote Mexican island who suddenly one night undergo a transformation and turn into feral killers.(The reason for this is not given!).
Sounds ridiculous of course,but first time Director MAKINOV (?) plays it straight and delivers a watchable horror pic with some gruesome scenes controversially featuring the kids themselves.
A thirty-something couple (Francis and the pregnant Beth) arrive on the island via a hired boat the morning after the children have all turned a bit 'weird'.Apart from the kids themselves the place seems devoid of any adults.The cafes and shops are eerily deserted.
But shortly afterwards Francis witnesses an injured old man beaten to death by some of the youths and after coming across a 'survivor' he learns the strange truth of what has happened on this beautiful slice of paradise.
Trying to escape the kids proves difficult as the little buggers seem to be everywhere,swiftly moving across the island as if there was a massive sale on at the local Toys R Us!.
Overall COAP is a decent chiller in the same vein as Children Of The Corn and the 1960 movie 'Village Of The Damned' where the glowing-eyed children terrorized the children of Midwich.
Recommended for a nice late-night viewing with a calming drink by your side,but best make sure the kids are in bed.We don't want to give them any ideas now do we?.

If you are thinking of holidaying on a Mexican Island, or if you have children, you may not want to watch this, so my advice is stay home and get a vasectomy.

Vinessa Shaw and Ebon Moss-Bacharach are the ill-fated couple who decide to visit a Mexican island only to discover it's got something of a ghost-town vibe to it. The film starts slowly, building up a nice atmosphere of desertion until children start to appear, initially doing little more than watching the couple until Moss-Bacharach's character Francis witnesses the children murdering an old man, and then all bets are off as it's a fight for their lives against the brats from hell.

The two lead actors do a fine job, can't fault the acting at all. The film is also very pretty to look at, and the gore is so well situated as to be believable with the island's children performing truly horrific acts in a very matter-of-fact manner.

Sounds ideal fodder for the horror inclined doesn't it? Unfortunately it somehow loses something in the translation as I was left thoroughly puzzled as to the one thing which isn't adequately explained in the movie: Motive.

There's one scene where unaffected children come into contact with the killer ones and some sort of understanding happens without a word being spoken, but as to whether it's extraterrestrial or what is unknown. That for me is a huge plot hole.

All things aside it's not a bad film, but given MAKINOV's obvious pride of ownership I would have thought he'd have given us something a little more original than a remake of the 1976 film "Who Can Kill A Child?".

Right I thought I would write a review here to set the record straight and big this film up a little. This is by no means a classic or in my book an amazingly good film however what this film is; is quite a good tv horror film. Its evident the budget was low for the film, the actors arent that great, and the direction and pass is a little sluggish but what saves this film is it has quite a good scary premise. This film wont blow you away but if you do not expect too much and want a creepy film to pass an evening then this isnt a bad watch.
