Goofs

When Locke reached the surface, he begins swimming towards some lights on shore, which appears about half a mile away (if not more). As he begins swimming, you can clearly see a strong current in a river, which he has to cross. Additionally, when he comes to shore, strong waves (as if they are from an ocean) are coming towards shore; 90° different from the strong river current. See more »

Wish can go back n eliminate the fellas who propagated the idea of caste system in India.
29 September 2019 | by Fella_shibbySee all my reviews

Nice thriller, supported by good start cast (Boyd Holbrook n Michael Hall) n engaging storyline.

Have enjoyed Jim Mickle's Mulberry Street, Stake Land n We Are What We Are. Good low budget horror films. Yet to see Cold in July.

The film starts with cops pursuing a serial killer murdering people with a unique weapon. Anything more will spoil the film.
