VOD is a beautiful thing because of limited theatrical runs like the one given to Pascal Laugier’s The Tall Man. Oh, it’s hitting theaters on August 31, but odds are it’s not going to be playing anywhere near most of you (myself included). Today, Image Entertainment announced that the thriller will come to VOD on Wednesday, August 1 – so, two days from now. Being a huge fan of Martyrs, this has officially become part of my weekend plans.
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.
Silent Hill‘s Jodelle Ferland also stars with Stephen McHattie (Pontypool, Watchmen), William B. Davis and Samantha Ferris.
