Cold in July movie scene

Michael C. Hall (l.) and Sam Shepard get down to business in Cold in July.

Michael C. Hall (TV’s Dexter), Sam Shepard (Mud) and Don Johnson (A Good Old Fashioned Orgy), arguably the manliest celluloid trio of the year, star in the Southern film noir thriller Cold in July.

While investigating noises in his house one balmy Texas night in 1989, Richard Dane (Hall) puts a bullet in the brain of lowlife burglar Freddy. Although he’s hailed as a small-town hero, Richard soon finds himself fearing for his family’s safety when Freddy’s ex-con father, Ben (Shepard), rolls into town, hell-bent on revenge. But not all is as it seems in this seemingly peaceful community, and soon Richard’s life begins to unravel into a dark underworld of corruption and violence that will pit him against the most unlikely of foes.

Co-starring Vinessa Shaw (40 Days and 40 Nights) and directed by Jim Mickle (Stake Land), Cold in July received positive notices from the press, chalking up a 7/10 rating at Rotten Tomatoes (based on 98 reviews) upon its limited release to theaters in June, 2014.

Bonus features on the discs include the following:

-Cast and crew commentaries
-Deleted scenes with optional commentary
-Early previsualization tests with optional commentary
-Isolated score by Jeff Grace
