    Get ready to squirm. Be sure to seek out this twisty and terrific sleeper in theaters or on VOD. It's a real find. show more

    Cold in July never actually turns into the film you think it's going to, and even if that means there's a few unanswered questions ricocheting around your head as the credits roll, it also provides real, rich pleasures as it zigzags into the darkness. show more
