While I'd personally rather pop in Who Can Kill A Child?, viewers new to the subject will find Makinov's remake interesting, but they should know it's already been done before - and better.
| Original Score: 5/10
Even by the low standards of scary-movie plausibility, mononymous first-timer Makinov exhibits brazenly little interest in psychologically grounding his story.
| Original Score: 2/5
Occasionally creepy, but mostly inert, unimaginative and tedious.
| Original Score: 5.44/10
Mostly just a hollow experience
A relentlessly routine remake.
These kids are not your usual tourist fare. Look out young marrieds!
Makinov tries repeatedly to mine suspense from slowly creeping up on his actors with the camera. If I'd directed this bunk, I'd hide my face too.
| Original Score: C
Creepy, troubling idea drains away through a gaping plot hole
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Demands a little patience but also delivers some nasty chills in return.
| Original Score: 3/5
Makinov's film expertly crafts a sense of dawning madness that hinges on its villains' unspoken fury at their elders.
| Original Score: 3/4
If anything, 'Come Out and Play' is generic to the core, a cut and paste horror thriller that still manages to deliver on both production value and intensity.
An unnerving, humid slice of elemental horror that conjures up memories of Children of the Corn by way of George Romero. It mostly works, until it doesn't.
| Original Score: C+
For horror fans, there are ... enough gruesome images, icky concepts and "don't-go-there" moments to carry the day.
...a slightly uneven yet stirring horror effort that bodes well for the mysterious Makinov's future endeavors.
The film maintains a deliberately unhurried pace that builds tension naturally and with minimum interference from the soundtrack.
| Original Score: 4/5
Though virtually without plot, the horror elements are effective given the graphic views of mass murder.
| Original Score: B
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.
Despite its familiar genre trappings, this nastily efficient horror film delivers genuine chills.
