The title stands as a beckoning call to audiences to join in the devilish delights Chase has conjured. Yet the scares fail to scale from a mobile device to the big screen.

As a horror movie... it's often diabolical fun: a PG-13 funhouse ride of peekaboo jolts.

Taut, effective techno terror.

A misfire on multiple levels, from the thinly drawn leads to lack of tension. It fails to offer any real scares and it's hard to connect on an emotional level with the characters.

Expanded by the writer-director Jacob Chase from a short, "Come Play" feels secondhand in its overarching conceit, its scare tactics and even its sentimentality.

An inconsistent, flat film that is too often reliant on jump scares instead of atmosphere.

Merely serviceable, and leaves you with the feeling that a much better game was lost in the shuffle.
