Cold Moon (2017) 4 Stars (4 / 5)

A chilling tale of supernatural vengeance arrives this October with Cold Moon, co-written and directed by Griff Furst, in theaters and VOD from Uncork’d Entertainment.

Starring Josh Stewart (“Shooter”, The Dark Knight Rises), Christopher Lloyd (the Back to the Future series), Robbie Kay (“Once Upon a Time”, Pirates of the Caribbean : On Stranger Tides), Candy Clark (“Twin Peaks”, Zodiac), Rachele Brooke Smith (Center Stage : On Pointe, The Nice Guys) and Frank Whaley (“Luke Cage”, The Doors), Cold Moon is based on the novel Cold Moon Over Babylon by the late Michael McDowell, author Beetlejuice and The Nightmare Before Christmas.

In a sleepy southern town, the Larkin family suffers a terrible tragedy. Now the Larkin’s are about to endure another: Traffic lights blink an eerie warning, a ghostly visage prowls in the streets, and graves erupt from the local cemetery in an implacable march of terror . . . And beneath the murky surface of the river, a shifting, almost human shape slowly takes form to seek a terrible vengeance.

Tommy Wiseau, Madison Wolfe, and Laura Cayouette co-star.

Cold Moon receives a 10-market theatrical release along with digital on 10/6 through Uncork’d Entertainment.
Cold Moon is produced by Furst’s Curmudgeon Films.

Cold Moon is in theaters and VOD October 6.
