New motion poster for The Tall Man

The Tall Man has released an eerie new motion poster, in which the titular boogeyman can be seen making his way into the night with a stricken child over one shoulder.

The film stars Jessica Biel as a small-town nurse living in some godforsaken hamlet where the local kids have a nasty habit of going missing. Often the way in eerie, fog-obscured Nowheresville, isn't it?

The townsfolk believe the culprit to be a nightmarish figure known as The Tall Man, although sensible Miss Biel isn't convinced. Not until her own son is taken, that is…

Driven half-mad with worry, Biel's character heads out into the woods in search of the shadowy child-catcher, but naturally winds up biting off way more than she can chew. As you can see from the new poster, her nemesis is quite an imposing figure.

Directed by Martyrs ' Pascal Laugier, The Tall Man will arrive in France as soon as 5 September 2012, with a UK release date expected shortly after. In the meantime, you can check out The Tall Man's spooky antics, below...
