In the Tall Grass is quite a long title for Natali, since (next to a lot of tv-episodes of various series) he's done mostly films with one word titles: Elevated, Cube, Cypher, Nothing, Splice, Haunter, Tremors. But considering Cube (still his best regarded film, I think) I can see why he is attracted to this story: it his a similar premise of people having to escape from a closed-off space that defies the regular rules of nature.

(Sorry, made a mistake in the thread title, it's actually called Cube, not The Cube.)

...I've not seen Cube-I apologize.....but some more origin would be welcome.....
We already discussed the rock at length in some thread, but I always felt it was more like a sacrificial place than something from outer space. The whole story had that Children of the Corn vibe of sacrifice for me.

To keep it in line with his other one word titles Natali can always call it 'Grass', or would that sound too much like a film about weed and hippies?
