THE TALL MAN
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 (Jessica Biel) seems sceptical, until her young son David disappears in the middle of the night. Frantic to rescue the boy, Julia experiences every parent's darkest nightmare in this twisting, shock-around-each-corner thriller from acclaimed director Pascal Laugier.
Set in a post zombie world where a treatment called the Return Protein can stop the spread of the virus, but cannot cure it. With daily injections,the Returned are able to live relatively normal lives, but with brutal attacks at the hands of Anti Return groups and rumors that protein stock is running low, the world is again on the brink of chaos. In the midst of this turmoil are Alex (Kris Holden Reid) and Kate (Emily Hampshire), a young, successful and enviable couple that are hiding a long held secret Alex is Returned. Suspicious that a government order for all the Returned to report to a secure medical facility for their own safety, the couple flees, taking with them all the doses of Return Protein they have. Now in a race against the clock and few places to turn, they must face their worst fears and come to grips with the reality that if they are neither human nor zombies, what exactly are the Returned?
