COLD IN JULY
by JIM MICKLE
Country: USA
Year: 2014
Duration: 100'


Texas, 1989. In the darkness of a night like any other, Richard Dane senses a presence in his house: all it takes is the time to pull out his pistol and shoot, and a man lies dead. The police say it’s the fugitive Freddy Russell. A few days later, the man’s father Ben shows up, looking for revenge. Full-out war breaks out between the two, but when they discover that Freddy hadn’t been killed by Richard, but that instead the police had swapped bodies, the two become unexpected allies and uncover unimaginable crimes and collusion.

Biography

film director

Jim Mickle

Jim Mickle (Pottstown, PA, USA, 1979) studied at New York University and received his degree in 2002. He met Nick Damici, his future screenwriter, at NYU. After working as director’s assistant, he debuted with the short The Underdogs (2002), which was followed by the feature films Mulberry St. (2006), Stake Land (2010), and We Are What We Are (2013), making a name for himself as one of the most interesting horror directors of his generation. With Cold in July (2014), featuring Michael C. Hall, the star of successful TV series such as Six Feet Under and Dexter, Mickle has tried his hand at thrillers, with excellent results, as witnessed by his nomination for the Grand Jury Prize at the 2014 Sundance Festival.

Declaration

film director

“At some point the script got to Michael C. Hall. And I love him, but I never would have thought of him for this. He’s made a career out of playing men with dark, twisted insides. There’s something cool about him playing an everyman. We got Michael to do something he had not been able to play for a very long time: a regular guy, the guy next door. He read the script and liked it, right at the time I thought the movie was falling apart.”
