I want to rub this trailer all over me – The Tall Man
Ordinarily, I shy away from trailers for horror films (especially those featuring mid-brow talent like Jessica Biel), as more often than not, they tend to ultimately disappoint. But The Tall Man demands my full, undivided attention as it’s Pascal Laugier’s first movie since his French film Martyrs fucked with my mind so hard a few years ago. I still get nervous thinking about Martyrs, but in that good way. Like after I saw Michael Haneke’s original Funny Games in 2002, and I was sure life was never going to be the same again. I’m sure Pascal will have been slightly reigned in by comparatively tame American studios, but I still get a definite sense of menace from this trailer. Knowing the psychopathic powers behind the camera, I’ll certainly be watching The Tall Man closely.
