Cold In July

by Jim Mickle
The weirdest game of cat and mouse with an unexpected outcome.

Based on the book of the same title by Joe R. Lansdale, "Cold in July" will keep you on the edge of your seat from the very beginning of the film. Not only is it beautifully shot, like all of Jeff Mickle's films, you won't turn away for a second. The cast has been perfectly selected, and it was great to see Michael C. Hall in something completely different after the end of Dexter. Hall, Don Johnson, and Sam Shepard are surprisingly funny each in their own way, which is a nice break in this otherwise dark story. The three work perfectly together, demanding your attention the entire two and a half hours. There were moments where I was scared, nervous, laughing out loud, cheering the characters on (almost out loud in the theater), and nearly in tears. If you're looking for something good, dark, and gritty, "Cold in July" is definitely for you. Plus, you have Michael C. Hall with a mullet in 1989 Texas. What are you waiting for?!
