    The only part of the movie of any interest was in the end where some action finally happened. Otherwise its 90 minutes of sleeping and getting bored. Seems like a pure waste of money. I wouldnt even watch it if it came on tv for free.

    Stripped down and edited for disequilibrium rather than clarity, “Play” is less interested in pandering to gorehounds than in highlighting our reluctance to view children as anything other than innocent.

    This nastily efficient horror film delivers genuine chills.

    A one-man band known as Makinov — he wrote, directed, produced, shot, edited and ran sound here — has done a pretty decent job in the chills department using a simple story, small cast and largely contained location.
