The Tall Man is Coming to Theaters in August
Pascal (MARTYRS) Laugier’s latest film, THE TALL MAN, is finally finding a home this Ausgust, and the news is better than I thought. Image Entertainment is taking care of this film’s U.S. release and this horror-friendly label has decided to give THE TALL MAN a theatrical release!! According to the website Jessica Biel Central:
“The news comes after rave reviews from the Cannes Film Festival. The New York Times posted a blurb earlier this month with August releases, and listed ‘The Tall Man’ on August 31st. Now it has been confirmed by Producer, Kevin DeWalt, that the film will indeed hit theaters on August 31st. It has not been confirmed whether or not it is a limited or wide release.”
THE TALL MAN is written and directed by Pascal Laugier and stars Jessica Biel, Jodelle Ferland, Stephen McHattie, William B. Davis, Samantha Ferris, and Katherine Ramdeen. Check out the plot crunch:
A darkness hovers upon the town of Cold Rock. Children have gone missing over the years, leaving neither a clue nor a witness. Superstitious locals talk of “The Tall Man”, a legendary, mysterious dark figure who takes children away, never to be seen again. Julia (Biel) is a nurse living in Cold Rock who doesn’t believe in legends. That is, until one night when she wakes with an eerie feeling, only to find her son’s bed empty. Frantic, she rushes downstairs, where she stops dead in her tracks – a huge dark figure stands in the entrance holding her son, David. Driven by pure instinct, Julia rushes after them, willing to do whatever it takes to get her son back. The chase is on and with it the quest for answers. Who is the Tall Man? And what has become of the children?
Considering how much I loved Laugier’s MARTYRS, I’m really excited to see what he follows that one up with.
