Shouldn’t movies about killer kids be scarier in this update of the 1976 Spanish film “Who Can Kill a Child”? Cause I gotta tell ya, I’m not feeling all that scared after watching the second trailer for director Makino’s “Come Out and Play”. (Or as he’s officially referred to, the “mysterious Belarus-born filmmaker Makino”.) Sure, the villains of the film are brats with weapons, but, well, they’re just kids with weapons, and I’m sure they’ll go down just the same at the wrong end of a car, know what I mean?
Anyways, check out the second trailer for “Come Out and Play”, which posits that old age question, “Kids, what are they good for? No, really what are they good for?”
A happy young couple expecting their first child travel to Mexico for a romantic getaway. As they dock on a sun-kissed beach where children are playing and giggling, everything seems perfect—yet as they wander the strangely empty streets, an atmosphere of unease sets in: an abandoned hotel, a distress signal echoing from a radio, and a sense of being watched. Children’s laughter drifts through the streets, with no adults in sight. When the couple witnesses the violent death of an old man, their day in paradise becomes a struggle for survival.
Starring Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Vinessa Shaw, and Daniel Giménez Cacho.
The kids come out to play in select theaters March 22nd, 2013.
