IN THE TALL GRASS (2019): The Things I Liked…

The story of In The Tall Grass centres around a sister and brother who venture into a vast field of tall grass, only to discover that there may be no way out.

Based on a novella that’s co-written by Stephen King, director Vincenzo Nataliโ€™s drama / horror / thriller definitely starts off with promise. It then goes on to deliver some quite satisfying twists and turns, but ultimately ends up losing its way and becoming more watchable than memorable.

Part of the reason I didn’t find In The Tall Grass to be great overall is that the story doesn’t come together in a way that made me fully buy into it all. Nevertheless, I do have a favourite thing about this movie and that is the performance by talented young actor Will Buie Jr. who plays Tobin. Also, is it just me who thinks that Buie Jr. kind of resembles Michael Douglas somehow? I digress.

Though In The Tall Grass is definitely not the best drama / horror / thriller of 2019, it’s also not the worst; nor is it ‘nightmare inducing scary’. Give it a chance if you’re so curious.

Read my spoiler-free movie review of In The Tall Grass (2019).


Based on the novel by Stephen King and Joe Hill; director Vincenzo Natali’s In The Tall Grass is a new horror / thriller starring Patrick Wilson, Avery Whitted, Laysla De Oliveira and Harrison Gilbertson.

It’s the story of a sister and brother who venture into a vast field of tall grass, after hearing a young boy’s cry for help – but only to realise that there may be no way out…

I can’t help but wonder, is there actually a novelist who’s had more films made based on their books than Stephen King? I think not.

I want to see this one because I’m curious about where King’s imagination will take us this time.

On a related note, if a stranger is asking for help from within a field of tall grass while I’m on the edge of it, I’d like to believe that not only am I NOT going to enter the tall grass; but what I’d like to think I’d do instead is ask questions first. You know, important questions that the emergency services I’ll be calling instead will need answers to. That all make some sense in my head. That is until I realise that the voice asking for help belongs to a seemingly helpless child.

And just like that, into the tall grass I go… to never be seen again.

Rachel Wilson ,Avery Whitted, Will Buie Jr. and Tiffany Helm also star.

In The Tall Grass Release Dates: Oct 4th, 2019 (US) , Netflix / Internet…
