A man simply trying to protect his home and family commits a spur-of-the-moment act that will have unforeseen---and unimaginable---consequences in the simmering thriller Cold in July. The film, boasting a powerhouse cast, arrives on Blu-ray and DVD from IFC Films and MPI Media Group on September 30.
How can a split-second decision change your life? While investigating noises in his house one balmy Texas night in 1989, Richard Dane (Michael C. Hall) puts a bullet in the brain of lowlife burglar Freddy. Although he's hailed as a small-town hero, Richard soon finds himself fearing for his family's safety when Freddy's ex-con father, Ben (Sam Shepard), rolls into town, hell-bent on revenge. But not all is as it seems in this seemingly peaceful community, and soon Richard's life begins to unravel into a dark underworld of corruption and violence that will pit him against the most unlikely of foes.
Co-starring Don Johnson and Vinessa Shaw and adapted from the Joe R. Lansdale novel by director Jim Mickle and cast member Nick Damici, Cold in July is a pulpy Southern noir whose twists and turns continue to pile up right up to its shocking conclusion.
