Come Out and Play

We like to believe that small children are sweet and innocent, but the truth is between the ages of 8 and 15, children can be pretty cruel and heartless. 

The idea of psycho kids has a long history in film, with stuff like The Bad Seed, Village of the Damned, The Omen, The Good Son, Children of the Corn, Joshua and others.  Come Out and Play is a fairly faithful remake of one of the better ones, a little-known Mexican film from 1976 by Narcisco Ibanez Serrador called Who Could Kill a Child?

The story is a simple one, a young couple (Ebon Moss-Bachrach and Vinessa Shaw) are taking one last vacation before she gives birth.  They go to a picturesque Mexican island town which they have heard is one of the most beautiful places in the world. 

Once they arrive, they are confused to find the town streets nearly completely deserted – other than a few surly looking kids and a dog, the village seems to be empty.  The hotel, the store, restaurants, all are open but no one is there.  However, they hear the sound of children playing and laughing somewhere in the town.  And who is the woman who is desperately radioing in a foreign language that the couple can’t understand?
