Wow! This one's a corker. Superb psychological thriller with twists on children that go missing from a small dead mining town, Cold Rock, Pitsville County, Washington, United States. Beautifully shot with in scenic forest town localities and keeps you engaged to the end especially as the plot deepens. Highly recommend this one, miles away from usual Hollywood big cash earners and that's what makes it good.

It took abit to get into this film but after persevering I quite enjoyed it, the story is quite well wrapped up by malevolence and deceit but if you watch the film with an open mind you will enjoy it. D Bowen.

Terrific film from a wonderful non fiction book by Australian writer Chloe Hooper. The director's partner made Somersault and Lore so it is a very gifted and politically well intentioned household. Bravo!

I am a huge fan of Pascal Laugiers previous film 'Martyrs' and have been looking forward to this for quite a while. To put it mildly though, I am completely underwhelmed by The Tall Man.

I think, for the most part, I just have a great deal of difficulty in accepting the premise of the movie. Im not American and dont live in a trailer park, where some of the pivotal scenarios play out in the film, but COULD this actually happen? I really cant buy that it could, especially in a small community like a trailer park situation.

I felt a decent build up quickly evaporated into thriller/horror cliche. With needlessly jarring and loud, meant to be jumpy scenes which rely solely on turning up the audio of a dog bark, chair scraping or door closing to 'scare' you, illogical double turns and actually predictable (if youve seen enough of these types of films) outcomes for the plot. I did guess who 'The Tall Man' would turn out to be, although the overall reasoning was not quite what I expected. And again, for me, it's just not plausible. And then the very end........where the girl sees the boy....apparently living in the EXACT SAME neighbourhood as her....oh forget it!!! Just so disappointingly pedestrian from the mind of the man who brought us 'Martyrs'

Its beautifully shot and well acted mind you but thats the least I expect from any movie these days. Here's hoping for a return to French filmmaking for Monsieur Laugier if this is what his dalliance with the American industry produces.

I had quite high expectations of this film that were not fulfilled. I guess that the premise is interesting enough but it was not what I expected and I won't be watching it again.

Good thriller, kept me watching and scared me a couple of times. Recommended it to my family and friends, one for Lovefilm if you don't want to buy.

I enjoyed the film but had a strange ending and it isn't one that I would watch again.

Not what you think its going to be... I really wanted to truly enjoy this film, but ultimately felt let down by its bland pacing and weak script. Looks well, acting above average... this could have been so much more.
