Jessica Biel in horror flick from the director of Martyrs.

Martyrs director Pascal Laugier’s, The Tall Man (or The Secret, depending on which part of the world you’re in) has a trailer…and we’re a bit nonplussed to be honest.

Starring Jessica Biel, the film certainly looks like a fairly typical horror, but with Laugier behind the camera we’d wager on having something more than a run of the mill shocker here. There are flickers of hope here beyond the director’s reputation – Biel is usually an engaging enough lead, the setting looks suitably creepy and an eerie mythology is hinted at.

We’ll have to wait until August 31st to find out, when The Tall Man/ The Secret is released in cinemas.

“In an isolated, slowly dying mining town, children are vanishing without a trace – abducted, the townsfolk whisper, by a mysterious entity known locally as “The Tall Man.” Town nurse Julia Denning (Biel) seems skeptical…until her young David disappears in the middle of night. Frantic to rescue the boy, Julia lives every parent’s darkest nightmare in this twisting, shock-around-each-corner thriller from acclaimed director Pascal Laugier.”
