Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer director John McNaughton’s triumphant return to the horror genre, The Harvest (which received its UK premiere at FrightFest 2014), is coming to the UK in June, with a snazzy new title: Can’t Come Out to Play.
Feeling nothing but devastation after the loss of her mother and father, teenager Maryann (Natasha Calis) moves in with her grandparents and is delighted when she befriends Andy (Charlie Tahan). Andy is in very poor health, and he must stay within his home and carefully follow the instructions of his mother Katherine (Samantha Morton) – who also forbids him from having any visitors. When Katherine’s visits are discovered, Andy’s father Richard (Michael Shannon) is initially fine with the visits but Katherine does not feel the same, and her behaviour grows increasingly erratic.
Also starring Peter Fonda, Can’t Come Out to Play comes to DVD and digital platforms (including TheHorrorShow.TV) from June 22, courtesy of Signature Entertainment.
