With so much happening this year, it could be easy to forget that Halloween is coming up. But Focus Features and Amblin haven't. They've lined up a frightening new horror film just in time for the holiday.
Gillian Jacobs (Community) and John Gallagher, Jr. (The Newsroom) play the parents of Oliver (newcomer Azhy Robertson), a non-verbal boy who often retreats into digital spaces and fictional worlds. When one of the disturbing creatures from his e-books finds its way into the real world, the scares become even bigger.
Writer-director Jacob Chase adapts his 2017 short Larry into this feature-length fright fest. This marks his big-budget debut after numerous shorts and the mumblecore feature The Four-Faced Liar. The film was shot by Maxime Alexandre, who knows a thing or two about horror, having lensed two Conjuring Universe movies, the killer alligator flick Crawl and the cult classic High Tension.
Check out the new trailer below.
Come Play will open in theaters on October 30, but don't be surprised if its date or method of release changes.
