New Movie Muser review. Cold In July is a thriller adapted from Joe R Lansdale’s novel, and is a wonderful ’80s throwback of overblown excess.
When photo framer Richard Dane accidentally shoots a burglar during a late-night break in, everyone is content to write the incident off as an open and shut case of self-defence. However, it’s only after the dead man’s criminal father appears and begins tormenting Dane’s family and is subsequently arrested, that it transpires there is a lot more going on than the police are telling them. Read the rest here.
