Empathy, family, and autism in scary monster story.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Come Play is a horror movie about Oliver (Azhy Robertson), a boy on the autism spectrum who comes upon an ebook about "Larry," a lonely monster who wants a friend. Despite a few small story flaws, it's well made and just scary enough for younger teens and up. Expect to see kids in peril, scary visual effects, a monster, a few jump scares, bullies, and characters smashing things. A car crash is suggested through the sound of squealing brakes. Language includes a few uses of "s--t" (spoken by adult characters), as well as "hell," "boner," "loser," and "freak." Fortnite is mentioned, and SpongeBob SquarePants plays a fairly large part in the story: Oliver frequently watches scenes from the cartoons, and he hums the theme song to calm himself. His parents seem to be having relationship troubles, but sex isn't an issue.
