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.

Come Play is a reminder that effective horror films are quite hard to pull off.

The solid scares deserved a better script. [Full Review in Spanish]

So many "ifs"--and none of the answers are fun.
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...
November 2, 2020
The most promising idea, a rigid adherence to experiencing something through the eyes and ears of a speechless autistic boy, is fudged...And the ending is a cop-out.

There's a lot to like about this expansion - a creepy monster, a touching family story - but a lot of what happens feels like filler.
October 31, 2020
Fine performances, and a disturbing finale, elevate this generic shocker.
October 31, 2020
Come Play is a perfectly adequate horror film ... but it could have been a bit tighter and a bit more forceful in its third act.

Even though Come Play has a touching message about the strength of a mother's love, that message is not enough to overcome all the time that's wasted where not much happens in [this horror] movie except a slightly varied rehash of several other scenes.

It's evident [writer/director Jacob] Chase saw 2014's The Babadook a few hundred times, but the execution feels more like Slender Man.
October 31, 2020
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
A Babadook knockoff for parents who are worried that their kids are spending way too much time staring at screens.
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.
October 30, 2020
Mixed though the results are, this gambit from a first-time filmmaker repays his boldness.
October 30, 2020
It doesn't all pull together.
