While here in the UK we still wait impatiently for a release date for Martyrs director, Pascal Laugier’s new horror The Tall Man, I will continue to share as much on the flick as possible with you. See, I loved Martyrs, and even though it took me a second watch the finally ‘get it’, I believe the film is a masterpiece, and so with The Tall Man being Laugier’s first film since that classic, my excitement levels are through the roof! Thankfully the official one-sheet has arrived, and I have it here to share with you at the bottom of this post.
THE TALL MAN is written and directed by Pascal Laugier and produced by Clément Miserez (Radar Films) and Kevin DeWalt (Mind’s Eye Entertainment) along with Jean-Charles Levy (Forecast Pictures) and Scott Kennedy (Highwire Pictures). The film stars Jessica Biel (New Years Eve, The A-Team), Jodelle Ferland (The Cabin in the Woods, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse), Stephen McHattie (Immortals, 2012), William B. Davis (“The X-Files,” Passengers), Samantha Ferris (Along Came a Spider), and Katherine Ramdeen (The World, The Flesh & The Devil)
“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) 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.”
