Makinov Dares You To Come Out And Play
More manifesto from mystery man

If you are yet to encounter the mysterious Makinov, please allow us to introduce you. The masked man has just put another to-camera diatribe online, expressing his distaste at the idea that his film, Come Out And Play, might find itself playing amongst the multiplex fodder of the capitalist pigdogs.

Who is Makinov? That's the question providing a modest bump to the publicity of his small movie. According to his own legend, he started out as a focus-puller in Russia before moving onto directing documentaries. Then a near-death experience / possible bad peyote trip shifted his own focus to horror, because cinema should teach us about pain, and we need to abandon our mobile phones and realise that we're just made of blood. Or something.

Anyway, the film he's made, as we said, is Come Out And Play, a remake of Narciso Ibanez Serrador's 1976 Spanish shocker Who Can Kill A Child? It involves a couple taking a vacation on a quiet island, who then discover it's so tranquil because it's inhabited by feral children who've been killing all the adults. Hey, they don't pay no mind: if they're under 18 they won't be doing any time.

You might speculate that yet another low-budget horror remake needs just this sort of publicity to make it stand out from the crowd. You might also note that perhaps Makinov wishes his film got anywhere near a mainstream screen, since it seems to have gone straight to VOD after its short life on the festival circuit. But it's worth saying, for any of you who might be going ahem-Children-Of-The-Corn-ahem, that Who Can Kill A Child? came out a full year before Stephen King wrote his short story.

We don't seem to have a UK release date for Come Out And Play so far, but here's the trailer while you're waiting. And if you want to check out the original, it's available on DVD from Eureka.
