Netflix's New Stephen King Horror In The Tall Grass Is Dividing Opinion
All you need to do is Google the title to see that many people have watched it and felt a little confusion - the first suggested search term is 'In The Tall Grass explained'.
The movie, which landed on the streaming site on 4 October, tells the story of brother and sister Cal (Avery Whitted) and Becky (Laysla De Oliveira), who hear a young boy shouting for help after becoming lost in a field of tall grass.
But things take a sinister turn when they try to rescue him and end up lost themselves. Separated and disoriented, it also seems as though they're not alone, with something evil lurking close by.
Both Becky and Cal then come across several other lost individuals in the grass, who are also trying to find their loved ones.
