BD reader ‘Mrhy’ just tipped us over to a Jessica Biel fan site that has landed two new looks at Martyrs director Pascal Laugier’s The Tall Man.
Biel plays a nurse living in a small town where children have gone missing over the years, leaving no clues. One night, she finds her son’s bed empty and, desperately rushing downstairs, confronts a huge dark figure, with her son in his arms. Teach Grant, William Davis, Samantha Ferris, Jodelle Ferland, and Stephen McHattie also star.
No word yet on distribution or festival showings. Hopefully there’s good things on the horizon. READ MORE

Starring Jessica Beil, Teach Grant, William Davis, Samantha Ferris, Jodelle Ferland and Stephen McHattie, last November we shared with you a ton of images, now we’ve got 10-seconds of footage that’s part of a demo-reel.

A small-town radio station discovers that recent madness in the local population may be caused by a virus transmitted through speech.
The flick is set in a radio station in Pontypool where one day the morning team starts taking reports of extreme, bloody incidents of violence occurring in town. As the story unfolds, the radio staff soon realizes the violence that is ripping society apart is due to a virus being spread through the English language. That in turn poses a problem for a yappy radio jock and his staff holed up in the broadcast booth housed in the basement of the town’s abandoned church as a slaughter rages beyond its walls.

KAW is the story of a bustling community that comes under attack by a conspiracy of ravens. Clyde (Stephen McHattie) was the first to notice the aggressive behavior of the birds as they attacked his farm. But since Clyde long ago lost his good standing in the town, his rantings and complaints are summarily ignored…until things take a drastic turn for the worst.
As it will soon be discovered, local farmer Oskar (John Ralston) has been hiding some unnatural developments from the townsfolk…and this leads to the deadly assault the town now must struggle to survive.

The ravens have a taste for blood and furiously attack the makeshift stronghold trying to reach the human flesh inside.
There is nowhere to run, and no one is safe.
Now Wayne will need to uncover the truth behind the dark flock that waits outside… if the last of the survivors have any hope of making it through the night…
