REVIEW: COME OUT AND PLAY
Based on Juan José Plans’ novel, “El Juego De Los Ninos,” COME OUT AND PLAY is Makinov’s directorial debut. The elusive director, who wears a mask on set and refuses to reveal his first and last name, forged a new identity after surviving a near death experience. To this day, Makinov’s true identity remains a mystery.
In COME OUT AND PLAY, Beth (Vinessa
Shaw, 3:10 To Yuma) and Francis (Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Damages),
a happy young expecting couple have come to Mexico for a
romantic getaway. Francis insists on venturing by boat to a more
serene locale, Beth hesitantly agrees. As they dock on a
sun-kissed beach where children are playing and giggling,
everything seems perfect at first. But as they wander the
strangely empty streets, an atmosphere of unease sets in: an
abandoned hotel, a distress call that repeatedly echoes from a
radio set, the sense of being watched with no adults in sight.
When Francis witnesses the violent death of an old man (Daniel
Giménez Cacho, Bad Education) at the hands of a
smiling little girl, a day in paradise quickly turns into a
struggle for survival. Francis must protect his very pregnant
wife from a pack of murderous children and get the couple off
the island alive.
