I’m old and have two young daughters. Before kids, I used to go to the movies at least two times a week. Now, I almost never head out to the theater to catch a first-run movie. I do, however, get to attend a couple of film festivals each year.
As a result, I get to see a lot of movies that many of you won’t see for a long time. Just think of these reviews as a primer for shit you should most definitely check out whenever you can.
Some of these films have since had theatrical runs; a few with limited runs, and some are available on DVD or Netflix. Most of these though have not seen the darkness of a theater outside of their film festival runs.
Do yourself a favor and track them down. You’ll be glad you did. READ MORE
It was just announced that Martyrs director Pascal Laugier’s The Tall Man will open in limited theaters on August 31st from Image Entertainment with a DVD/Blu-ray street date of September 25th. Starring Jessica Biel, Jodelle Ferland, Stephen McHattie, William B. Davis and Samantha Ferris, Bloody Disgusting reader Fabien Monnier tipped us off to over 30 images from the political horror movie, all of which can be viewed inside.
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.”
