Anyway, Come Play is so much weirder than you might expect, and it does phone-based horror in a new and intriguing way.

Didn't hate it, I actually thought the things they did right were very very good.

Gotta feel for Chase, who had no idea in 2017 that 7 months into a pandemic, weary parents might seriously consider trading their kids to demons for a little peace and quiet.

Jacobs' performance is perfectly grounded, and attuned to Robertson's incredible portrayal of Oliver, which never lets the character become just the sum of his awkward tics.

Overall, it's a strictly serviceable horror saga that chooses characters over chaos, killings and cringy special effects. If you're game, come play.

There's a little bit of Poltergeist, a touch of Mama, and a smidgen of The Babadook in this one. That doesn't make it derivative -- it stands on its own as a story about the torment of an already-tormented boy.

This being a PG-13 affair, most of the horror elements are reserved to fairly effective jump scares...

Taut in delivering its thrills and chills. (Full Content Review for Parents - Violence, Profanity, Scares, etc. - also Available)

Gives us a meaningful story about how damning loneliness can be to the vulnerable.

Come Play is well worth switching on, offering a story that has both a light-hopping creature using our technology-driven isolated times to stretch out its claws but also a fully charged heart beneath the phone screen.
November 11, 2020
Come Play fulfills its basic mandate of being spooky and having a cool creature without being gory. For those who like this horror subgenre, the movie works.
November 10, 2020
The chiller deals with bullying and there are parallels between the monster and our young protagonist. The talented young cast led by Robertson is a pleasure to watch while Jacobs and Gallagher Jr. turn in solid and genuine performances as the parents.

Has some absolutely world-class jump scares, and a whole lot of them, too.

Come Play is The Babadook-lite. But that's hardly a bad thing.
November 3, 2020
Despite small hiccups in plot and character, this teen-friendly horror movie is a well-made production from top to bottom, and it effectively encourages strong empathy for its central characters.
November 2, 2020
Come Play colors its horror trappings with an equal measure of craft and heart.

"Come Play" comes alive with impressive, old-school production design and simple direction...

Fine performances, and a disturbing finale, elevate this generic shocker.

There are obviously scenes that require CGI, but it adds a layer of frightening magic to know the creature exists in an FX workshop somewhere.
October 30, 2020
Overall, I think horror fans will enjoy the scares and atmosphere that Come Play has to offer [even if] it suffers from some writing issues.
