The latest adaptation of the short story co-written by horror legend Stephen King and his son Joe Hill, In the Tall Grass is a time and space bending tale that has you trying to wrap your head around not only what happened, but when, where, why, how and who.
Netflix picked up and debuted 2019’s In the Tall Grass, giving audiences the pretext of semi-mediocre expectations and interesting but visibly lower budget cinema. Even with the Netflix production value looming over the movie I did find In the Tall Grass intriguing.
Most of the questions are at least somewhat answered by the end. Although, I am notoriously lost in recurring and overlapping timeline stories. I don’t know exactly how the end resolves itself, and which version of anyone will ultimately be doomed or saved.
All in all, In the Tall Grass is fine fantasy/sci-fi horror offering. With an IMDB rating of 5.5/10, Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer of 40%, and no Audience Score (as of this publication), I give In the Tall Grass 6.0/10.
