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, Dexter) puts a bullet in the brain of a low-life burglar. Although he’s hailed as a small-town hero, Dane soon finds himself fearing for his family’s safety when the deceased burglar's ex-con father (Oscar® nominee Sam Shepard, The Right Stuff) rolls into town hell-bent on revenge. However, not all is as it seems and Dane's life begins to unravel into a dark underworld of corruption and bloody violence.
Also featuring Don Johnson (Miami Vice), Nick Damici (Stake Land), Wyatt Russell (22 Jump Street) and directed by Jim Mickle (We Are What We Are, Stake Land), Cold In July is adapted from Joe Lansdale's pulp-classic novel, delivering a tale of uncompromising terror and vengeance in the sweaty and blistering tradition of No Country For Old Men and One False Move.
