Synopsis


Cold in July
Initially hailed as a hero for fatally shooting a low-life burglar who broke into his house, small-town Texan Richard Dane (Michael C. Hall) begins to fear for his family's safety when the victim's ex-con father (Sam Shepard) turns up in town making some not-so-veiled threats. Don Johnson, Vinessa Shaw, and Nick Damici (who also penned the screenplay) co-star in this thriller directed by Jim Mickle (Stake Land, We Are What We Are) and based on the book by Joe R. Landsdale. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    I first read the book "Cold In July" by Joe R. Lansdale and really enjoyed it. Then I purchased the DVD from Best Buy and was very pleasantly surprised with how closely the movie followed the story line of the book ! This one great action movie that focuses on one mans thirst for revenge and another mans need to "do the right thing" even though it goes against his families wishes. Great movie on many levels !!

    Great tangled revenge flick set in late 80s Texas.

    Reminiscent of the Coen Bros., Jim Mickle's film starts off in dark, vaguely quirky territory & takes a turn for the darker about 2/3 of the way in. It's refreshing to see Michael C. Hall in a one-off role for a change. Don Johnson & Sam Shepard are fantastic, rounding out the ensemble nicely. Joe Lansdale's story is not as far out as some of his that've been adapted to the screen. A very worthwhile watch!

    An 80's Throwback Thriller w/ Brilliant Cast

    "Cold in July" kind of snuck up on a lot of us film buffs last year with its edgy throwback synth-soundtrack, brilliantly twisting plot, and all-around solid cast (Sam Shephard, in particular, is fantastic). There sadly aren't many extras included, but with a movie this good, the fact that you're getting fantastic picture and sound quality is enough. Highly recommended.

    A Plot That Grow Cold

    The story telling in this movie got a bit too disjointed for me and by the end I found my interest waning. It is a watchable movie for one viewing, and a throwback to some B genre 80s style movies, but I just did not feel like it was executed just right. This blu-ray package does not come with any exciting extras.

    Wow, a great movie. This movie kept making me ask "what would I do it that happened to me?" How would one react. I don't want to give out any spoilers. Enjoyed the movie.

    Amazing Film, Disturbing

    Buyer Beware: extremely good thriller, though very disturbing. If disturbing violence and sexuality are typically problems for you, this might be one to avoid.

    "Cold in July" holds you in suspense from beginning until the end. The cinematography is dead-on and the way comedy is used gives it much needed relief.

    An action, drama, sometimes subtle comedy and humor. This movie is great. Never disappoints each time I watch it. Soundtrack is second to none as well.
