Shared Darkness

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.

Despite its familiar genre trappings, this nastily efficient horror film delivers genuine chills.

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.

The film maintains a deliberately unhurried pace that builds tension naturally and with minimum interference from the soundtrack.

For horror fans, there are ... enough gruesome images, icky concepts and "don't-go-there" moments to carry the day.

Makinov's film expertly crafts a sense of dawning madness that hinges on its villains' unspoken fury at their elders.

Though virtually without plot, the horror elements are effective given the graphic views of mass murder.

...a slightly uneven yet stirring horror effort that bodes well for the mysterious Makinov's future endeavors.

Demands a little patience but also delivers some nasty chills in return.

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.

Mostly just a hollow experience

Occasionally creepy, but mostly inert, unimaginative and tedious.

Creepy, troubling idea drains away through a gaping plot hole

Time Out

Even by the low standards of scary-movie plausibility, mononymous first-timer Makinov exhibits brazenly little interest in psychologically grounding his story.

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.

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.

A relentlessly routine remake.
