Cold In July

Please Note: This film is no longer showing at Railroad Square Cinema

“The spirits of 1980s genre maestros like John Carpenter, Walter Hill and William Lustig hover strongly over Jim Mickle’s COLD IN JULY, a superior piece of Texas pulp fiction that starts out like a house on fire, sags a bit in the middle, then rallies for an exuberantly bloody finish. Bolstered by a trio of strong performances from Michael C. Hall, Sam Shepard and an uncorked Don Johnson, this ultra-violent, grimly funny hybrid of home-invasion thriller and revenge Western” (Variety) was a big hit at Sundance this year. How can a split-second decision change your life? While investigating noises in his house one balmy Texas night in 1989, Richard Dane puts a bullet in the brain of lowlife burglar, Freddy Russell. Although he’s hailed as a small-town hero, Dane soon finds himself fearing for his family’s safety when Freddy’s ex-con father, Ben, rolls into town; hell-bent on revenge. However, not all is as it seems. Shortly after Dane kills the home intruder, his life begins to unravel into a dark underworld of corruption and violence. Twists and turns continue to pile up.  Unrated but would be R. 110 Min.
