Official ‘The Tall Man’ Trailer Packs The Punches

Tournage The tall man

Arriving in theaters August 31 from Image Entertainment is The Tall Man, featuring star Jessica Biel (Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Blade: Trinity, Total Recall) and the legend of “The Tall Man”. We’ve just now landed the official trailer that’s quite different than the previously release international footage and has a bit more edge.

Directed by Pascal Laugier of Martyrs fame, “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 (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 from acclaimed director Pascal Laugier.

Silent Hill‘s Jodelle Ferland also stars with Stephen McHattie (Pontypool, Watchmen), William B. Davis and Samantha Ferris.

    Now i am interested, the first trailer for this film was boring and made it look like a standard thriller, but that trailer was sweet. Nothing will ever top martyrs though, that film still haunts my dreams, come on Pascal make this film freak me out the same way martyrs did, thats what everybody wants(a fucked up beautiful looking film that you will think about when your head hits the pillow) Aahh martyrs, two people in my house have never seen it and want to know what all the fuss is about, i think its time to fire up the blu ray player and watch it again.

    i liked both trailers but yeah this trailer is the better of the two. also i adore Biel, Jodelle Ferland and SUPERNATURAL’S Samantha Ferris.

    I saw this last night. Be warned, it is not another Martyrs. It is not intensely scary. But it is ballsy as hell. I recommend it for sure.

    It sucks that it’s not actuallly Slenderman, but it still looks really good.

    After reading numerous reviews and just now reading the spoilers, I don’t need to actually watch the movie to know it’s a giant pile of shit. Which is a shame because I was genuinely interested in watching this.

    Rented this movie on Apple TV yesterday ($9.99). Meh. It was alright. Without spoiling anything, I found the character development a bit tedious and one-dimensional, while the ending was…let’s say…implausible. Listen…I can forgive all kinds of things, if I’m entertained. And I was, to the tune of maybe a 6/10.
