Based on a Joe Lansdale book, Jim Mickle’s Cold in July is an odd, twisty Texan neo-noir that at first seems straightforward and scary but a mite predictable. Michael C. Hall is Richard Dane, a mousy picture-framer in a small Texas town who—in a superbly edited sequence—accidentally shoots a burglar in his house in the middle of the night. Almost immediately, he finds himself the focus of the dead man’s vengeful ex-con father. The film is set in the late 80's and has a score that's heavily influenced by John Carpenter. [more inside]
