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 Freddy's 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 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 (DJANGO UNCHAINED) and 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 right up to it's shocking conclusion. Pile up to it's shocking conclusion.
