It’s not so much the imge that is the reason for his post, more the fact I am very very excited about this new horror which has somehow slipped through the net, until now! Bloody Disgusting got their hands on a new image from The Tall Man featuring the films star, Jessica Biel, but here is where it gets interesting:
The Tall Man is the latest chiller by director Pascal Laugier, the French director behind the astonishing and vicious film Martyrs. Martyrs divided opinion when it was released a few years back, I actually hated it on first watch, but on second watch it all made sense and I found it to be a deeply intelligent and unsettling piece of work. The news that Laugier is back is good enough, but just read on for the plot details and try and not get excited at the prospect of this.
“Set in the town of Cold Rock, The Tall Man is a story of the haunting secrets that hide behind closed doors. With children 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. When a woman’s son is taken, the chase is on and with it the quest for answers: who is the Tall Man and what happens to the children?“
Jessica Biel stars alongside Jodelle Ferland, Stephen McHattie, William B. Davis and Samantha Ferris. Laugier also wrote the film.
