    • Synopsis
    • Cold Rock, U.S.A. - A darkness
      hovers upon the town: children have
      gone missing over the years leaving
      neither a clue nor a witness.
      Superstitious locals talk of The Tall
      Man, a legendary, mysterious dark
      figure who takes children away
      never to be seen again.
      Julia (played by Jessica Biel), is a
      nurse living in cold rock who doesn’t
      believe in legends. Until one night,
      waking up with an erie feeling she goes to her son’s bedroom
      and finds his bed empty. Rushing downstairs she stops dead
      in her tracks: a huge dark figure stands in the entrance
      holding her son David. Driven by pure instinct, Julia rushes
      after them willing to do whatever it takes to get her son back.
      The chase is on and with it the quest for answers: who is The
      Tall Man? What becomes of the children ?
