“COME OUT AND PLAY” comes out in March, see director’s Manifesto

See the ranting, anti-establishment manifesto of masked director Makinov and then wonder how such a bland film was the result. 

Makinov is mysterious. He is angry, red-hooded and would like cinema to reflect the pain he feels in his Dark Forest. Suspect, then, that he should release upon the world a boring, suspense-free and stunningly unprovocative beat-for-beat remake of Narciso Ibáñez Serrador’s killer kid classic WHO CAN KILL A CHILD? I took particular issue with the film out of last fall’s Fantastic Fest, finding it almost offensively uninteresting, with his video blog/manifesto/Blackberry-crushing tirade just icing on the cake.

Regardless of Makinov and his goofy persona, COME OUT AND PLAY, about a couple’s vacation on a Mexican island overrun with bloodthirsty children is on its way. The film is out March 22, 2013. You can see an early trailer below, and read Fango’s review here.
