No one knows who the mysterious Makinov is, but he has made a remake of the classic horror film, Who Can Kill A Child? Makinov’s version, titled Come Out and Play, has been getting some pretty good reviews, and while the trailer is pretty intense, it is the Makinov Manifesto’s which seem to be building the director quite a reputation.
So far there have been two of these bizarre videos with the hooded director sharing his deep, and often unsettling thoughts on life, movies and the world in general. Mad genius or clever marketing trick? You can decide that for yourself, but another video has just popped up thanks to the guys at Bloody Disgusting, and we have that video right here.
In the latest “manifesto”, Makinov talks over the trailer for his film, once again sharing his thoughts. Calling life meaningless and hoping the film will leave us thinking about death is rather morbid, but hey, it makes for interesting viewing!
While there are no details yet for the UK, a US release date has been announced and the film will arrive in select cinemas on March 22nd. The film is currently available in the US on VOD.
Directed by Makinov, the unsettling remake stars Daniel Giménez Cacho, Vinessa Shaw and Ebon Moss-Bachrach.
A happy young couple expecting their first child travel to Mexico for a romantic getaway. As they dock on a sun-kissed beach where children are playing and giggling, everything seems perfect—yet as they wander the strangely empty streets, an atmosphere of unease sets in: an abandoned hotel, a distress signal echoing from a radio, and a sense of being watched. Children’s laughter drifts through the streets, with no adults in sight. When the couple witnesses the violent death of an old man, their day in paradise becomes a struggle for survival.
