Film Review - The Tall Man

TALL MAN Still 3

Marketed as a sinister picture with heavy demonic overtones, “The Tall Man” turns out to be something quite different, absent a juicy genre hook to immediately pull viewers in. That’s not to say the film is successful, but its intentions are unique, hoping to approach formulaic scares with moralistic twist. It’s a shame the feature isn’t terribly interesting beyond its central concept, laboring through pedestrian chase sequences and flaccid confrontations. Writer/director Pascal Laugier has a few inspired visual ideas to share, but what begins as an intriguing Stephen King riff devolves into a Lifetime Original, effectively burning off the potential of the complex misdirection.
