Still reeling from the loss of her parents, she takes it personally until one day when she is trapped in the house and she discovers the Young's terrible secret. Played by Natasha Calis, the young Maryann who befriends Andy represents the modern female; she is strong-willed, brave and fearless.

but if you're painting while in lockdown, you'd better off watching it dry than seeing this horrible waste of money and effort. Samantha Morton is no Kathy Bates and McNaughton doesn’t quite reach the macabre ‘normalcy’ of Misery but ‘Can’t Come Out to Play’ is on some levels reminiscent of Rob Reiner’s adaptation of the Stephen King novel. Less so a horror and more a thriller, Can’t Come Out To Play plays on fears of claustrophobia and being incarcerated.The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products. That incident, introduces us to Katherine (played by Samantha Morton) who is caring for her sick invalid son, Andy (played by Charlie Tahan) alongside her husband (played by Michael Shannon). In her new neighbourhood, she befriends Andy (Charlie Tahan), the boy next door, whose parents keep him confined to their house due to his serious illness. She moves into the neighborhood with her grandparents (played by Leslie Lyles and the ever so cool Peter Fonda), after the death of her parents.

That being said, the film seems to intertwine between two families and the maelstrom of chaos that unravels.It should not be dismissed as ‘just another’ mundane ‘horror’ film but should appeal to those who want more than John Carpenter soundtracks and bumps in the night to keep them engaged. Overall, the whole cast are spot-on and deliver great performances and they do drive the film forward. I mean, c'mon, there's a section when they want you to be excited from watching a teenage version of Misery.

John McNaughton sought a PG rating for the film, but failed: "I made a promise that I would deliver a movie with no overt violence, no bad language, no sex, no nudity. The tension takes place mostly in Andy's house where Maryann and Andy must steal precious moments together to play ball and be normal teenagers while avoiding the critical eye of Katherine who most definitely doesn't want Andy to have any visitors. Natasha Calis gives a strong performance as Maryann and is certainly a young actor to look out for in the future. A frantic Katherine, refusing to accept that there is no hope for her son, subdues Richard with a sedative and pursues the children. A dazed Richard heads down to the basement, and, after unplugging his son's ventilator, sets the basement on fire and lies next to his son.

The psychopathy of Andys mother is so awful it’s hard to watch at times but the performance is truly commendable.

She becomes unhinged when she learns that her new neighbour (Natasha Calis) has secretly befriended the boy, and has been encouraging behaviour she doesn’t approve of. Samantha Morton's acting ability truly shows in this film, it's my favorite performance of hers next to "CONTROL". The abnormal becomes normal and the terrifying question arises – how far will she go to protect her son?There was just one guy, a wonderful man named Gerry Kessler who died since the movie was completed, who wrote one check out of his own pocket, for 6,5 million dollars. This is a commendable film from McNaughton with an almost touching and clever treatment of clashing perspectives, those of the innocent children and those of grieving adults. However, Maryann's visits continue in Katherine's absence; she even takes Andy outside to play baseball.
