Story


In an isolated, slowly dying mining town, children are vanishing without a trace - abducted, the townsfolk whisper, by a mysterious entity known locally as "The Tall Man." Town nurse Julia Denning (Jessica Biel; "Total Recall," "Strangers") seems skeptical...until her young David disappears in the middle of night. Frantic to rescue the boy, Julia lives every parent's darkest nightmare in this twisting, shock-around-each-corner thriller from acclaimed director Pascal Laugier ("Martyrs") called "The Tall Man."

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..opens like a ghost story and closes with its feet firmly in the real world. Until then, Pascal Laugier's chilly little thriller manhandles our sympathies and gladdens our eyes in almost equal measure..”
by Jeannette Catsoulis [New York Times]
“.."The Tall Man" is a replay of that frustration, but with none of the razzle-dazzle of young women crying in pain. I can't decide if that makes it better or worse..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]
“..is ultimately a long mess..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]
