Storyline

This film is about a legend that has been started by the town folk of Cold Rock. Since the children in the town have been going missing, people have said it's an entity known as 'The Tall Man' who has been taking them. Julia Denning (Jssica Biel) is the local nurse whose husband died years earlier. She is soon personally involved as her child is taken. She tries to track down where the child is taken, but finds that there's more to what's happening than she knew. The towns-folk start to turn on her and the truth comes out. But there's still more to the story - who is 'The Tall Man'? And what is the truth behind the disappearances? Written by U.N. Owen

Why only 5/10 ?

I'm not good speaker , specially in not my origin language and this is my first review - very short ... After few thousand movies i saw just wonder why this movie has rating 50/10 ? This is really good film ,deserve at least for 7 points . For me even more ( 9/10 ) Don't understand , maybe 3/4 of people who ratings this movie were woman ? I recommend this picture and i hope rating will rise soon :) IMDb says that review must contains ten lines of text - i did't knew about it so i add more . First of all i scared sometimes on this film like hell , the way how film is made is almost perfect , story line fit me in hundred percent , probably the story line is responsible for low rating , i think . No woman understand how children can quickly fit to new family , man's ... ? Most easily understand that most important is children's future but not to the end . Somebody wonder about DNA code these kids from the poor families fit to richest new "ground" and is new parents though about this "little" problem ? Sorry 4 my English and these sense no words beyond but i wanted only say : i like this film and don't understand low IMDb rating , that's all

btw. Jessica B. is amazing in this movie , great job . and sorry one more for my English
