Having premiered at the Midnight Madness portion of TIFF is Makinov’s Come Out and Play, a Mexican remake of the 1970s flick Who Can Kill A Child? that I thought was pretty good (although it could have used a bit more originality).
Cinedigm Entertainment Group acquired North American rights to Makinov’s flick starring Vinessa Shaw, Ebon Moss and Daniel Gimenez Cacho. Cinedigm, which made the announcement Friday, plans a theatrical release early next year followed by VOD, digital and DVD.
In the remake, “Beth and Francis vacation before the birth of their child. Francis insists on venturing to a more serene island, Beth hesitantly agrees. They set out to a beautiful island, but soon discover it’s mysteriously abandoned, and the only people on the island are children. Beth and Francis are left to uncover the mystery of the disappearances, and a day in paradise quickly turns into a struggle for survival.“
