The guy who nearly wrecked my mind with the daring, disturbing yet thought provoking Martyrs is at it again, but this time it’s no tour de force.
Children are disappearing in a small North Western town outside of Seattle and I don’t care. Much like Mathieu Kassovitz’s crossover attempt Gothika with Halle Berry and Penélope Cruz after the success of Hate (This is a must see) and Crimson Rivers , Pascal Laugier took a shot with Jessica Biel and American audiences. Another twist ending that could rival any M. Night climax, The Tall Man delivers no punch. Beautifully shot and at times well directed, I hope this is not the last we see of this daring French auteur he writes all his own stuff, I just hope not to see another American horror vehicle.
