Screens Story  September 22, 2016, by Richard Whittaker
"...It's not like he didn't have ideas on how to continue: "Over this length of time, and the long gaps between these films and from the Seventies onwards, I've been close friends with the key actors.

A dream lineup is one of many treats in this East Texas neo-noir based on a Joe Lansdale book.
Film Review  June 6, 2014, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Set in East Texas in 1989 (that near-past era before cell phones and DNA testing made mystery plotting a much trickier business), Cold in July is based on a novel by Joe Lansdale, and the screenplay is adapted by director Jim Mickle and his writing partner Nick Damici (who also has an onscreen role in the film). The time period also fits the story’s underlying depiction of various modalities of masculinity...."
