Entertainment Reviews:

A.V. Club - 05/22/2014
"There's a very 1980s vibe to the middle passage, especially once the director cranks up Jeff Grace's mood music....Entertaining..."
Entertainment Weekly - 05/29/2014
"Between EASTBOUND & DOWN, DJANGO UNCHAINED, and now COLD IN JULY, Johnson has a nice little streak going of turning seemingly disposable characters into indelible scene-stealing rascals. -- Grade: B
Rolling Stone - 05/22/2014
3 stars out of 4 -- "Channeling John Carpenter and David Cronenberg, director Jim Mickle expertly builds nerve-shattering tension into COLD IN JULY."
Wall Street Journal - 05/22/2014
"[A] taut, seductive thriller....Sam Shepard plays the grizzled father, Russel, with a malevolence that's all the more chilling for its bizarre detachment..."
New York Times - 05/22/2014
"The pulpy neo-noir COLD IN JULY should propel the filmmaking team of Jim Mickle and Nick Damici further up the blood-spattered, zombie-infested hierarchy of B-movie auteurs with Hollywood ambitions."
Washington Post - 05/22/2014
3 stars out of 4 -- "Adapted from Joe R. Lansdale's novel...COLD is Greek tragedy with a twang."
Total Film - 06/23/2015
3 stars out of 5 -- "[W]e get reliably twinkly performances from old pros Shepard and Johnson, Jeff Grace’s lovely synthy score, an explosive climax, and the feeling that we never know what’s going to happen next…"
Empire - 06/27/2015
4 stars out of 5 -- "A character-driven thriller with more twists than an off-the-map dirt road…[and] awards-quality performances from the three leads…"
Sight and Sound - 07/01/2014
"Shepard and Johnson's flawless rhythm allows the two men to move between chest-thumping displays of masculinity and petty bickering…"

Product Description:

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.
