Set in the town of Cold Rock, THE TALL MAN is a story of the haunting secrets that hide behind closed doors. With children gone missing over the years, leaving neither a clue nor a witness, superstitious locals talk of 'The Tall Man,' a legendary, mysterious dark figure who takes children away never to be seen again. When Julia Denning's son goes missing, the chase is on and with it the quest for answers: Who is 'The Tall Man', and where have the children gone? THE TALL MAN is the first English language feature from French Director Pascal Laugier, who's MARTYRS opened to critical acclaim at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival and later that year at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Shallow, nonsense, boring.

A different approach -- a film disguised as a horror, but as the layers are peeled away, it reveals something much different, and far more sad. And selfless.

Definitely not what I was expecting. I thought this was going to be a horror, but it's not. That being said however, it was still enjoyable. The first 40 minutes or so are very boring, and I was contemplating giving up and shutting it off. But after that the pace picked up considerable and it got pretty good.

Worth a watch if you're into mystery movies.

i completely agree with bears1985... it was humdrum for the first hour, but i'm really glad i stuck with it. It's also to me, one of those movies that gets even better in hindsight.

The storyline in this movie guides the audience towards a horrifying tale in a small town where young children are disappearing. Very intriguing conclusion. Worth watching.

Kinda of slow and wierd but after you see the whole movie it comes together. You need to watch the whole movie than judge it not bad neat twist

Skip it, not worth the time. Why is Jessica Biel doing such a terrible movie?

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. Not too bad---good performance. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.
