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
Not to be confused with The Tall Man from Phantasm (1979) and sequels, played by Angus Scrimm. This film isn't related with "Phantasm" franchise. See more »
When the sheriff arrives at the building with Julia in the back seat, she manages to escape from the car by easily opening it from the inside. Today's police cars are designed so that the suspect cannot escape regardless of whether or not the door is locked or unlocked; in such a way her the door can only be opened from the outside.

This movie has a very interesting idea behind it. I have no clue to why it is only rated 5 on IMDb, but this should definitely be rated a 7 or higher. All I have to say is that this has an original story and it does portray a crude truth about the world we live in.
This is a rely good way to spend your evening if you want to watch something mind-blowing. The movie is not at all predictable, the acting is beyond perfect, it actually makes you think this is an X-Files movie where the next best thing is something you don't believe it would be possible.
I give it a 10 because this one will go into my favorite list.
