REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  Be the 1st!

“..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]
2 of 5

“..is ultimately a long mess..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]
Review rate : D-

“.."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]
