Reviews

75
Slant Magazine -
Illustrates the problem of class mobility with a dark, troubling premise that holds a harsh light up to our own assumptions and expectations.

The A.V. Club - Scott Tobias
In easily her best performance - and sadly, one few will see, given the film's modest release strategy - Jessica Biel stars as a single mother in Cold Rock, Washington.
40
Los Angeles Times -
Long on atmosphere and short on sense, The Tall Man becomes less gripping as it grows more ridiculous.
38
New York Post - Kyle Smith
Spits out enough scares and twists to maintain our interest, but the film's psycho-sociological layer is almost as cheesy and unconvincing as its low-rent action scenes.

The Tall Man (2012)


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 ('Jessica 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?
