The battle to protect their son becomes more difficult when Larry keeps finding new ways to communicate with Oliver.

Verdict on Come Play

Come Play is a horror thriller that like ‘Pulse’ will use technology against the humans that are being tracked down. Only this time we get a monster over ghosts. It does bring to life a creepy monster that is waiting in the shadows, that can only be seen through smart screens.

When it comes to the horror in the film, we are given a terrifying creature. Only showing it through screens only adds terror to the viewer. This is adapted from a short movie of the same title, and you can clearly see how the story was stretched out, but the core horror figure is still in the middle of the story.

The performances in the film are great. Gillian Jacobs and John Gallagher Jr show the horror of what is going on, along with the stress of raising an autistic child.

Final ThoughtsCome Play is a creepy and terrifying creature creation.
