Damn that deceiving title. I tell you every time I see the words ‘The Tall Man’, my Phantasm fan-boy inside takes over and thinks that we have something to do with the Phantasm franchise, sadly not. But, it is from Pascal Laugier (Martyrs), so that alone has me interested.
If you too would like to see what The Tall Man is all about and you haven’t had the chance yet, well, the film will soon be making its way to Blu-ray and DVD this September 25th.
From the Press Release:
“When does myth give way to reality? For the tiny, isolated hamlet of Cold Rock, the line between what’s real and what’s not becomes all too frighteningly real… Coming off its national theatrical engagement, Image Entertainment unleashes The Tall Man on Blu-ray™, DVD and digital download September 25th.
Written and directed by Pascal Laugier (Martyrs), the film stars Jessica Biel (Total Recall, The Illusionist), Jodelle Ferland (Cabin in the Woods, Silent Hill), Samantha Ferris (Grace) and Stephen McHattie (300, Watchmen), The Tall Man appears on Blu-ray™ for an SRP of $29.97 and DVD for an SRP of $27.97.
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 terrifying, shock-around-each-corner thriller.
Filled with twists and turns that both thrill and chill, The Tall Man is an unforgettable journey into the dark recesses of what has been heralded as “the first sociological horror thriller ever” (Anything Horror).
Available in collectible “O-card” packaging, The Tall Man Blu-ray™ and DVD feature an 8-minute deleted scene and a visual concepts gallery.”
