Best friends Marie and Alexia decide to spend a quiet weekend at Alexia's parents' secluded farmhouse. But on the night of their arrival, the girls' idyllic getaway turns into an endless night of horror.
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
The basic premise of 'The Tall Man' is that some neckbeard is going around abducting children from the town of Cold Rock, a town full of belligerent arseholes. Immediately I thought that this was some generic slasher film but it turned out to be so much more. There are many twists and turns, though sometimes they can be incoherent and it took me a short while to figure out what was actually happening. Don't watch this if you're drunk.
Jessica Biel is the star of the show playing a nurse who I think from what I gathered has lived in the town for a while with her son. Biel is fantastic in this film and I think that she deserves a lot of credit as she really lifts the quality. Without her this film would have been savaged by the critics. It's that type of film. I'd recommend it as Wednesday night entertainment, but the main problem is that it just fades into the background which is unfortunate. In summary, if you have a couple of hours, kick back and enjoy.
