Cold In July, director Jim Mickle’s film adaptation of the Joe R. Lansdale novel, premiered Saturday night at the Sundance Film Festival and quickly received an abundance of excellent reviews.

  • “Certainly, COLD IN JULY is the most purely-entertaining film this year’s edition of the fest has yet to offer, and action fans will have a field day with this.” (JoBlo)
  • “Mickle’s bracing sense of style and cinematographer Ryan Samul’s moody visuals keep it gripping until the final bullet is fired.” (The Hollywood Reporter)
  • “Mickle and his team do some remarkably confident work here.” (Film Threat)
  • “Director Jim Mickle and his writing partner Nick Damici once again prove that ‘genre filmmaking’ is nothing to apologize for.” (The Salt Lake Tribune)
  • “The flick looks great, the score is nice and big and it’s unlike anything I’ve seen, so it wins points all around.” (Ain’t It Cool News)
