COME PLAY - Official Trailer - In Theaters Halloween.
Oliver (Azhy Robertson) is a young non-verbal autistic boy who uses a smartphone to communicate with people. He attends school and is mostly taken care of by his mother, Sarah; his father Marty (John Gallagher Jr.) spends most of his time at work trying to make ends meet. Sarah (Gillian Jacobs) and Marty's marriage has become difficult to the extent that Marty moves out. One night Oliver sees an app on his smartphone, "Misunderstood Monsters", narrating the story of a monster named "Larry" who "just wants a friend". Strange things begin happening to Oliver after he reads the story: lights flicker and go out by themselves, and a second face appears on his tablet while he plays with a picture app. At school, Oliver is bullied and teased by his classmates due to his condition. They lure him into a field and chuck his phone into the underbrush.
One night, Sarah organizes a sleepover so Oliver can become more social. The three boys who bullied him all come over. Oliver hides the tablet as he is terrified of it. Thinking Oliver is hiding candy, one of the boys retrieves the tablet and reads the story. The lights go out and Larry appears, but he can only be seen through the camera of the tablet. Larry attacks Byron (Winslow Fegley), one of the boys, and Sarah comes down to see what the commotion is about. The terrified boys all blame Oliver for the incident. In the following days Sarah begins to see the same strange things that Oliver did. Confronting Larry through Oliver's tablet, Sarah learns that Larry wishes to "take" Oliver back to his home world. Terrified, she rushes to school to pick up Oliver and then visits Marty, who has since moved out. However, Marty does not believe Sarah and Oliver.
