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 in an affectingly vulnerable performance) 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 Freddys ex-con father, Ben (Sam Shepard, August: Osage County) rolls into town, hell-bent on revenge. But not all is as it seems in this seemingly peaceful community, and soon Richards 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 (Django Unchained) and a adapted from the Joe R. Lansdale novel by director Jim Mickle (We Are What We Are) and star Nick Damici (Stake Land), COLD IN JULY is a pulpy Southern noir whose twists and turns continue to pile up to it's shocking conclusion.
