Damn the title of this film! As being an absolute fan boy of Phantasm, a little bit of me gets super excited when I see the words ‘Tall Man’. But, I can live with it as Pascal Laugier’s The Tall Man sounds like it could have potential, and thanks to the folks over at Dread Central, we have a brand new photo to share with you.
The film stars Jessica Biel (New Years Eve, The A-Team), Jodelle Ferland (The Cabin in the Woods, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse), Stephen McHattie (Immortals, 2012), William B. Davis (“The X-Files,” Passengers), Samantha Ferris (Along Came a Spider), and Katherine Ramdeen (The World, The Flesh & The Devil).
Synopsis: “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 son, 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.”
The Tall Man hits theatres this August 31st.
