Martyrs director Pascal Laugier’s The Tall Man in limited theaters on August 31st from Image Entertainment. While we don’t have an exact theater count yet, I’m assuming that “limited” is indeed the operative word here. Why? Because they have a DVD/Blu-ray street date of September 25th. This isn’t a big surprise seeing as many studios are experimenting with different theatrical and home video window. The Tall Man stars Jessica Biel, Jodelle Ferland, Stephen McHattie, William B. Davis and Samantha Ferris.
In the film, “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.”
