Questioning when myth gives way to reality, the mystery crime drama ‘The Tall Man‘ will be released on Blu-ray, DVD and digital download September 25 by Image Entertainment. The Blu-ray will sell for $29.97, and the DVD will retail for $27.97. The film, which started its limited theatrical run on August 31, was written and directed by ‘Martyrs’ filmmaker Pascal Laugier.
‘The Tall Man’ follows the towns people of the small, isolated hamlet of Cold Rock, as they start to believe the children are being abducted by the title character, a mysterious entity. Julia (played by Jessica Biel) is skeptical of the legend, until her son David (portrayed by Jakob Davies) disappears in the middle of the night. She frantically sets out to save her son as she lives every parent’s worst nightmare.
Julia begins to believe in the legend after seeing David being taken by the elusive supernatural figure, and declares she’ll stop at nothing to get him back. One of the local teenagers, Jenny (played by Jodelle Ferland), who is unable to speak due to her emotional neglect at home from her financially struggling family, offers to help Julia get David back. Jenny hopes in the process she, too, will be taken by The Tall Man and will be given a better life, despite the rest of the town’s outrage over the children’s disappearances.
‘The Tall Man’ Blu-ray and DVD are available in collectible “O-card” packaging, and feature an eight-minute deleted scene and a visual concepts gallery. For more information on, and the trailer for, the film, visit its official website.
