Critic Reviews for In the Tall Grass
Netflix seems to be banging out Steven King adaptations as fast as King used to bang out books. This one, based on a novella by King and his son Joe Hill, is quite a decent little creeper too.
While it's not the sharpest of King's stories, Natali's cast redeems the film's shortcomings.
The performances are all solid, and writer/director [Vincenzo] Natali and cinematographer Craig Wrobleski wreaking fiendish menace from the grass jungle. Surely, they're not in Kansas anymore.
"In the Tall Grass" runs too long and repeats itself too much to be as gripping as its source material. Turns out there's a limit to how scary weeds can be.
Despite an uneven track record, In the Tall Grass gives the lamest King adaptations a run for their money, as writer-director Vincenzo Natali labors to stretch out the story, which takes a wrong turn in more ways than one.
