Here are your first images from “Martyrs” director Pascal Laugier’s latest, “The Tall Man”. The film sounds like it’s got the makings of a decent direct-to-DVD horror flick in it, though having Jessica Biel as your star might give it some clout to go into theaters overseas. Not so sure about Stateside, though, Biel is still mostly just a supporting pretty face around these here parts. Anyways, pics via the boys at Quiet Earth.
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 a woman’s son is taken, the chase is on and with it the quest for answers: who is the Tall Man and what happens to the children?
The film also co-stars William B. Davis of “X-Files” fame and Samantha Ferris of “Supernatural” fame. Stephen McHattie and Katherine Ramdeen round out the cast.
