That, too, contributes to the seventies atmosphere.
Robert Beveridge
It's just that the movie has nothing more going for it than its central concept, which is really just a kernel of what it should be.
Mark Eremite
Pretty original idea and a great addition to your collection as a horror/thriller fan.

For me this film was very creepy, it gave me nightmares. Seeing children killing adults on screen for some unexplained reason was terrifying enough; but to see the way they were doing it was horrifying even more so. I was truly scared after seeing this movie, even though I never saw the original I still found it to be a terrifying and good horror movie. I will definitely have to see the original after seeing this one.

Disappointing English language remake of the classic 1976 Spanish horror flick Who Can Kill A Child? about a young couple on vacation who land on an island that seems to be completely deserted except for some children. Stephen King co-opted the basic premise for his famous 1977 short story Children of the Corn so what seemed pretty novel and shocking in 1976 is much less so now. This version follows the old Spanish flick very, very closely but where the original was extremely creepy this version is hamstrung by lousy acting (from the adult leads and the children alike) and never manages to generate any suspense whatsoever. In this film the first victim the protagonist sees killed by the children is stabbed and bludgeoned with rocks. In the original film the first victim was hung up like a human pinata while a smiling little girl slashes at him with a scythe. Which sounds creepier to you? Like the 2004 version of The Manchurian Candidate this ultimately comes across as much more timid and less imaginative than the original movie it's a remake of.

The idea of murdering children on a rampage is certainly not a new one. There have been countless film projects to address the phenomenon in both horror and science fiction categories. But it is such an unsettling narrative device, it never fails to raise my curiosity. As the ultimate corruption of innocence, the sight of a young child ready to perpetuate irredeemable violence creates such a harrowing tableau that it is oftentimes difficult to look away. It has a car crash appeal that I find absolutely fascinating. The minimalist shocker "Come Out and Play" has a slow build tension that makes the most of its subject. For much of its scant 86 minute running time, it alludes to dangers unseen as opposed to showcasing carnage. This approach does create a creepy vibe, but it also calls for the adult cast to make a series of increasingly head-scratching decisions in order to sustain the tension. In a film of this type, I feel the need to get caught up in the escalating nightmare with the protagonists. Here, however, I was kept at a distance by their poor choices and was glad my survival didn't depend on their combined brain power!

Vinessa Shaw and Ebon Moss-Bachrach play a young married couple vacationing in Mexico. Shaw is quite pregnant and probably should be getting some rest, but she seems up for an adventure. They contract a motor boat to take an excursion to a more isolated locale. Upon arriving at a picturesque little village on a tranquil island, they are greeted by a gaggle of playing children. What fun! As they head into town, however, it seems like they missed the action. Not a person is to found on the streets or in ANY establishment (aside for an occasionally creepy child). They are nothing, though, if not persistent.

It would be sacrilege to say that this English-language remake of Who Would Kill A Child? was better than the original.
Would it now?
Well then burn me at the stake because this one takes the sadistic Creepy Kid Apocalypse cake!
It isn't actually a remake, technically, since the both movies are independent adaptations of the same novel.
And each belongs to its era. If you like one you must like the other.
It's just that this one is better. Just by a hair.
Each is a product of its times. Who Would Kill A Child? was the offspring, I think, of Cannibal Holocaust and Cannibal Ferox. Still globe trotting, yes, but so much more mellow. No animal torture here to spoil the vibe, man. Dig the rays before the kiddos eat your guts out. It's that Fulci territory I've barely explored...Dr Butcher MD, Anthropophagus, that's about all I've seen. But they're a wonderful escape, willing to grant a few sunbaked moments in philosophical contemplation of what it could mean, a woman where sweet looking children giggle as they slaughter their elders.
This is a post-9/11, post Chris Nolan WWKAC? It's edgy. Time is limited. Full of real-world survival thinking. No time to wonder why, except for in the blood curdling shrieks of Vinessa Shaw.
Oh. Did you not hear that?
Vinessa Shaw.
Holy Elmer Fudd, that woman has it going on. In a sun-drenched, Victoria's Secret descending to Laura Ashley for expecting moms, paprika freckles glowing above that baby bump covered in clean white cotton twill.
And then she goes into labor. Or rather, the kid is killing her from within the womb.
I whipped out my phone and took about 27 shots just of her convulsing. Wow. To have been a maggot in the corpse during that shoot.
Maggot in the corpse? Get it?

wasn't sure what to expect from this one, the trailer made me want to see more, couple goes to private island for the night, when they arrive, no one seems to be around, so they go to look for signs of anyone, and then the story takes a turn for the frightening when they find out why.
