The first official trailer for Pascal Laugier’s The Tall Man has been released and can be watched online. The Tall Man marks Laugier’s first feature since the unforgettable Martyrs, and stars Jessica Biel as a mother who moves to Cold Rock, which may not be a good place for a parent to move to as it has a history of child abduction.
Cold Rock’s Tall Man is a mysterious stranger who is said to steal the town’s children regularly, though it is not clear if the fiend is paranormal or deranged human in origin. The trailer doesn’t seem to be your standard fare shock-horror trailer, which usually has a big jump at the end. The trailer opts for a mood-piece instead, which could be an indication of the overall tone of The Tall Man, considering the fact that Laugier’s Martyrs also prefers the moody, creeping uneasiness over the twitch scares of more mainstream horror movies.
