... This isn't a horror film; this isn't a drama; this isn't a thriller. It's hybrid of the three that--while not entirely successful--delivers in ways that I doubt any viewer will see coming...

Pascal Laugier's, THE TALL MAN, is about the tiny town of Cold Rock; a small establishment hidden by great mountains, smothered by deep forests and burdened with child abductions at the hands of a mysterious figure known as "The Tall Man". Jessica Biel plays one of her dramatic roles here as a dreary-eyed mother who loses her son to the cloaked antagonist. In an effort to save him, she sprints headlong into a strange world of twists, clever misdirection and oddly enough, boredom.
