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 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.
As a fan of Laugier and Martyrs
, I am excited for this film, but as an absolute hater
of Jessica Biehl I have my reservations. Hopefully it turns out for the best, because Martyrs
was one of my absolute favourite films of the past decade.
