Product description

Noir thriller directed by Jim Mickle and starring Michael C. Hall and Sam Shepard. Texan small-business owner Richard Dane (Hall) has been hailed as the town hero since he protected his wife (Vinessa Shaw) and child by fatally shooting a would-be burglar inside their home. Residual guilt from the encounter is quickly dissipated by the police who assure Richard that he was acting in self-defence and therefore cannot be held accountable for the murder. However, when the burglar's recently-paroled father, Ben (Shepard), arrives in town and begins making explicit threats towards Richard and his family, Richard is forced to step up once again to protect them from harm...

Richard Dane' (Michael C Hall) and his wife 'Ann' (Vinessa Shaw) are woken by a noise in the
house, a nervous 'Richard' gun in hand investigates coming face to face with an intruder, he
pulls the trigger killing the intruder.
The law see's it as self-defence though 'Richard' is raked with guilt having killed someone, what
happened this night will change his life dramatically.
The father of 'Freddy' the declared victim 'Ben Russel' (Sam Shepard) an ex-con turns up in town
with revenge for his son's death in mind.
'Richard' fears for his family's safety, 'Ben' begins to play mind-games by entering the home and
leaving a threat on the floor, bullet's, this bringing mounting anxiety and fear into the 'Dane' house-
hold.
The police offer round the clock protection after the incident, how much comfort will this give, 'Ben'
is still out there.
Whilst checking in at the local cop-station, 'Richard' clocks a wanted poster for 'Freddy' and realizes
that it's not the man he'd killed.
Things are beginning not to add up, the local police appear to have their own agenda, especially
after trying to kill 'Ben' on a rail track.
An out of towner rolls into town after having read the reports of the intruder killing, 'Jim Bob' (Don
Johnson) knowing the reports are wrong, he's more than a little interested in what's going on in the
town, he knows 'Ben' he'd served with him in a combat zone, 'Ben' had saved his life.
Because there are more questions than answers 'Richard' who had dragged 'Ben' off the rail-track
remains involved.
'Richard' along with 'Ben' and 'Jim' set off to follow leads that 'Jim' has to find 'Freddy' (Wyatt Russell)
however the truth they uncover is twisted and unpleasant.

This is a great low budget crime movie which is nicely paced and builds builds up to an explosive finale, it reminded me of a Coen type movie, its a simple and great revenge movie about a man (Hall) who kills a burglar and then the burglars father seeks revenge!!

‘Cold in July’, the novel by the prolific author Joe R. Lansdale, typically takes a hackneyed plot and transforms it into a contemporary thriller, by twisting the narrative with unpredictable turns. While Jim Mickle and Nick Damici deploy essentially the same technique in translating it to the screen, the way they go about it is fascinating and refreshing. They accentuate the many twists in the plotline with changes in film’s tone, including tempo, colour and soundtrack. The technique itself is not original, for it has been previously attempted, but the noteworthy difference here is that the changes are seamless without disjointing the narrative.

Apart from that, their approach is largely understated, evidently giving plenty of freedom to the cast in developing their characterisations, and to the crew in applying their utmost. The result is a vibrant, thrilling and compelling movie that is worth revisiting time and again.

Richard Dane, played by Michael C. Hall, is an intriguing watch. Beneath his redneck exterior and under that ungainly haircut, he is an intelligent and compassionate man with complex, but very human, emotions. It is not an easy part to play, but he nails it superbly, applying notable nuances in facial expressions. The fun starts in earnest when Don Johnson arrives as the larger than life and imposing Jim Bob, a scintillating twist in the narrative that is one of the most memorable sequences in the movie. Sam Shepherd is as dependable as he always is and suitably terrifying where needed. It is fascinating how subtly the revival of the stale relationship between Dane and his wife is depicted, beginning with cold and detached indifference to gradually blossoming through the course of the story.

I had been so looking forward to this film, based on one of my favourite books by my favourite author Joe r lansdale, it seemed it should just the best movie ever. It was not. Where the book, like all of his books was a pacy roller coaster ride of an adventure this was slow and drawn, there were times where I got so bored I contemplated switching it off. In the book, like all Lansdale books, the dialogue is fast paced, witty and drives the momentum of the story. In this film there is barely any dialogue at all, and when somebody did finally speak it was mumbled, I kept turning up the volume but it didnt help. This is a real disappointment and a damn shame. I urge people to read the book but I honestly cant recommend this film, such a drag.

Jim Mickle seems to make movies that challenge the viewer with tough situations and hard as nails characters. 'Cold In July' is no exception. When Michael C Hall's quiet family man kills an intruder, he's shaken to the core. He's then shocked further to find the intruder's dangerous ex-con father has just been released from jail and appears intent on exacting vengeance. But this is only the beginning of a twisting tale full of suspicious behaviour, and soon it becomes obvious there's a bigger mystery behind everything that threatens all of them.
Cold In July is handled wonderfully - the aftermath of the shooting, including the emotional effect it has on Hall's character, is treated with a realistic feel, and all of the actors involved imbue their characters with an air of gritty believability that's often absent in a thriller.
It also doesn't offer cheap solutions. The film will steer you towards what appears to be an answer, only to reveal a surprise or another mystery. Don't worry though - we're not in 'Lost' territory; everything gets revealed in an extremely satisfying and well scripted way that flatters the viewer by treating them like a grown up, presenting tough choices and shocks to the rough-edged characters. Filmed extremely well, with good pacing and tension, it's a real mystery thriller for adults.
Fascinating, captivating, and well worth viewing.
