Jessica Biel Hunts Down The Tall Man in New International Trailer
06.30.12 by Ryan
For the first time since 2003's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, actress Jessica Biel has returned to the horror genre in the upcoming The Tall Man (or Secrets, as its known overseas). Set in a small mining town, Biel stars as the town nurse whose son becomes one of several children in the dying town who have been abducted by a mysterious figure known as the Tall Man (no, not the Tall Man from the Phantasm movies).
The Tall Man debuted at the South By Southwest Festival in March, and was quickly picked up for distribution by Image Entertainment who have released a new international trailer and poster for the movie, which will hit theaters in August. The trailer is rather brief and is mostly concerned with presenting the Tall Man and Biel's obsession with finding him but also hints at a psychological twist during Biel's conversation with a police officer (Stephen McHattie).
The Tall Man was written and directed by Pascal Laugier, who quickly rose as a director to watch amongst horror fans after his 2008 cult hit Martyrs. Jodelle Ferland (39 Steps) and Samantha Ferris (Grace) co-star.
