Pascal Laugier is one of the most challenging, boundary-pushing directors currently working in the horror/Thriller genre. We are delighted to be presenting the regional premiere of his latest feature THE TALL MAN alongside the film that made him (in)famous, MARTYRS.
THE TALL MAN (2012): In a small, run-down Canadian mining town, children have begun disappearing on a regular basis, and the abductions are being blamed on a local legend, known as “the Tall Man”. When her own child disappears, a young widow is forced to investigate. But nothing is quite as it seems…
MARTYRS (2008): A young woman’s quest for revenge against the people who kidnapped and tortured her as a child leads her and a friend and fellow victim into a terrifying world of cold-blooded cruelty and horror. This cold, clinical exploration of the nature of cruelty is one of the most harrowing, horrifying cinema experiences of recent years.
