A year ago, at the Sundance Film Festival, director Jim Mickle made everyone sit up and take notice with his cannibal chiller, "We Are What We Are." The film broke out in Park City, and while it went on to play a slew of prestigious festival dates—hitting Cannes, Fantastic Fest and more—Mickle buckled down and completed his next movie. And twelve months later he's back in Sundance with "Cold In July."

A year ago, at the Sundance Film Festival, director Jim Mickle made everyone sit up and take notice with his cannibal chiller, "We Are What We Are." The film broke out in Park City, and while it went on to play a slew of prestigious festival dates—hitting Cannes, Fantastic Fest and more—Mickle buckled down and completed his next movie. And twelve months later he's back in Sundance with "Cold In July."

Starring Michael C. Hall, Sam Shepard, Don Johnson and Vinessa Shaw, the film is a slice of Southern-fried noir, a throwback dramatic thriller set in 1989, that follows an ordinary small town man whose life is changed when he kills a burglar who breaks into his home. However, it turns out the man he killed is the son of a fearsome convict, recently released from prison, and he'll have to protect his family from the ex-con seeking revenge. And this exclusive, illustrated poster is a nice way to establish the moody, old school tone of Mickle's film.

"Cold In July" premieres today at the Sundance Film Festival. Check out the one sheet below.
