Cold In July
They don't make 'em like this anymore. Well, more accurately, they don't make 'em like this anymore, but Jim Mickle still does. The director behind "Stake Land" and "We Are What We Are" returns with another genre exercise with "Cold In July," and the first trailer has arrived.

Kill your darlings
When any filmmaker decides to chronicle a largely undocumented or unknown corner of history revolving around famous cultural figures, a question that can raise its head is: what's underneath the surface that compels the director to make the story?
