4.0 out of 5 stars Decent Horror Remake
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!).

3.0 out of 5 stars Never stop the car..., 17 Nov 2013
This review is from: Come Out And Play [DVD] (DVD)
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?.

This review is from: Come Out And Play [DVD] (DVD)
This was an ok film. It was not boring and I quite enjoyed it. The kids are evil! Good acting. English with occasionally subtitles. Rubbish ending though I thought. Give it a go you may like it. :)

3.0 out of 5 stars This could have been so much more, 30 Dec 2013
This review is from: Come Out And Play [DVD] (DVD)
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.

The story was ok, but the way it was executed was not brilliant. They never really explained why the children suddenly acted the way they did and the whole ending was poor. Not a fan.
