  • 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.

    October 7, 2019 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    October 4, 2019 | Full Review…
  • "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.

    October 4, 2019 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    October 4, 2019 | Full Review…
  • It's rather astonishing how fast Vincenzo Natali's "In the Tall Grass" completely loses your interest.
