He's good at taking friends.
Following its theatrical run last Halloween, Jacob Chase's Come Play will be available to own for the very first time on Digital January 12th, 2021 and on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand January 26th, 2021 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
In the film, "A young boy who struggles to connect with others turns to his cell phone and tablet for companionship, befriending a strange and sinister non-human creature."
The full plot synopsis reads, "Desperate for a friend, Oliver (Azhy Robertson), a lonely boy who feels different from everyone else, seeks solace and refuge in his ever-present cell phone and tablet. When a mysterious creature uses Oliver’s devices against him to break into our world, Oliver’s parents (Gillian Jacobs and Gallagher Jr.) must fight to save their son from the monster beyond the screen."
The film is based on writer and director Jacob Chase’s own original short film, Larry, and explores the connection between technology and isolation through exciting, innovative and thrilling storytelling, keeping audiences on the edge of their seats from start to finish.
Come Play was produced by The Picture Company for Amblin Partners.
"Bringing the terrifying vision of horror to life, the film’s mystical creature was created by none other than Jim Henson’s Creature Shop, known for its legendary Muppets and some of the most iconic puppetry in the world. Audiences everywhere can now witness the haunting story unfold as one family must overcome their differences to save themselves from a threatening supernatural force and the dangers that lurk in the shadows."
Unfortunately, the press release didn't mention any sort of bonus features possibly included in the Blu-ray and DVD versions of the film.
