  Cold in July review – an everyday 80s tale of guns 'n' poses 3 / 5 stars 3 out of 5 stars. Nick Damici and Jim Mickle are back with a shape-shifting romp that veers from gory to goofy, harking. "Cold in July" is a surprisingly good thriller, with a violent story in the style of Quentin Tarantino, where police officers are dirty and felon may be good-hearted. The amazing cast has three great actors: Michael C. Hall, from Dexter, Sam Shepard and Don Johnson and the dark and tense story has a well-written screenplay and good plot points.
