Juego de niños (Come Out and Play)

de Makinov

Synopsis

Spanish horror cinema is every bit as good as the rest. In part, because among its movies is one of the (most) masterful genre works; a film that is to horror what Hitchcock was to suspense. A horror movie filmed in broad daylight. With Island of the Damned, Chicho revolutionized genre. Three decades later, Makinov recalls that classic with a remake that is on a par with its reference; and that seems obvious, but it’s not kid’s work. Respectful of the original movie, Come out and Play is equally unsettling, tense and sunny... until the blood starts to flow, and the film is no longer a children’s game.
