User Reviews

For Fans of The Tall Man
25 September 2018 | by twelvehousebooksSee all my reviews

If you love The Tall Man, then you'll love Lost Child. The director had me mystified from the get-go. Are the superstitious locals on to something? Are there demons in this story? The acting is superb from all angles, from the backwoods witch-hunters to the child who is the focus of the tale. Misunderstandings, prejudices, ignorance, superstition, child abuse, and, yes, hope in a better life after we sojourn through this valley of the shadow of death. It's all there. You'll love it, especially if you're ancestry has been affected in some way by the people of this section of America, being the Ozark Mountains.
