I borrowed this DVD from our library since JB was on the cover. Not knowing what the story was, I thought it was your typical "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" type slasher genre.

Wrong - the director Pascal Laugier's other movie was Martyrs, not my kind of movie.

JB can act but she looked very ordinary in this one w/ little makeup. The plot was about children kidnapping by The Tall Man but I'll leave it at that.

I found it extremely engrossing but not sure if I agree with the director's intent.

I watched this cause I wanted to watch a horror movie. It isnt a horror movie at all and I thought the 'twist' was shymalan level dumb.

I gave this a go recently.
In spite of JB's fine acting, it was too stupid for me to get all the way thru.
