The first trailer of the upcoming horror film, Come Play, has hit the web. For the initial moments, the trailer gives off a generic vibe - a lonely, aloof kid is haunted by an entity, that's ignored by the parents. But as the footage progresses, we witness the fresh execution that the story has received from the makers. The entity is visible through the lenses of camera phones, tablets etc. It doesn't seem like a ghost story where we don't even see the apparition for the major chunk of the film. Here, the thing makes an appearance a number of times in the trailer itself. Michael Pena Remembers Watching Horror Classics with Mom, Says ‘They Were like a Roller Coaster Ride’.
