Film still: Cold Moon


"An eccentric mix of veteran actors, Southern Gothicism and neo-noir lends Cold Moon a certain charm as a ghostly revenge thriller"

In the small town of Babylon, Florida, fourteen-year-old Margaret Larkin (Sara Kathryn Bellamy) goes missing, only to be found killed and thrown in the river, (where her parents disappeared from their boat a decade earlier) tied to her own bicycle. The town is obsessed with finding the killer, but Nathan Redfield (Josh Stewart)—the estranged son of a prominent town banker—takes the opportunity to pin the crime on an unlikely suspect: high school principal Walter Perry (Marcus Lyle Brown). Nathan is literally haunted by the ghost of his victim, along with the ghosts of others who have perished in the river, while his sadistic father James (Christopher Lloyd, Back to the Future) uses both his son's guilt and his increasing mental instability to control Nathan's every move, with the ultimate goal of driving his son to kill again. With Candy Clark and Tommy Wiseau (The Room).

Directed by Griff Furst, U.S.A., 2016, 92 mins.
