Just not as good either.

I, myself, would have headed right back to my boat at some point in this exploration.
K. Harris
The camera-work is a bit shaky, in places.

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.

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.

This was a film I came across after reading about it making a few appearances at a couple film festivals. Over all its a movie that takes a long time to reach its payoff. This would have worked better as a short film...I know it was adapted from a story that had been previously published and for the most part the story isn't all that original but for a movie to watch late at night and it's streaming on Netflix, it's worth giving a look but don't fork over to much cash for this one.

Come Out and Play (Makinov, 2012)

I first heard about the Spanish exploitation/horror flick Who Can Kill a Child? When Eli Roth touted it in a Five Films segment on the late (and much-lamented, at least at Goat Central) Rotten Tomatoes Show. At the time—this was probably five years ago now as I write this in November 2013—it was pretty much impossible to find in the United States Fast-forward to 2013 and I still haven't managed to catch the original. Unfortunately, I was unaware that Come Out and Play, directed by one Makinov (rumor has it this is Mexican director Gerardo Naranjo under a pseudonym, but I have not seen firm confirmation of that yet), was a shot-by-shot remake of Who Can Kill a Child? until I was about ten minutes into it. By that time I figured I would give it a shot, no pun intended. While I watched, I half-perused the vitriol unleashed at the movie on the IMDB message boards. I didn't hate it nearly as much as a lot of people did, it would seem. But then, I repeat, I haven't seen the original. For all I know they are completely justified, and let's face it, how often are shot-by-shot remakes successful? (Let's put aside the woeful remakes that would have been infinitely better had their directors opted for that approach.)

Plot: the members of The Offspring... no, I kid (though I have had that song going through my head for hours now). A young married couple, Francis (The Lake House's Ebon Miss-Bachrach) and Beth (Vinessa Shaw from the The Hills Have Eyes remake), are taking one last vacation before they become parents, looking to get away from it all on a secluded island. When they get there, they notice a few kids fishing on the pier, but don't see any adults. They think nothing of it and head for their hotel, which is, again, oddly deserted.
