Cold in July

Famed horror and crime fiction writer Joe R. Lansdale will be at Santa Fe’s Jean Cocteau Cinema (418 Montezuma Ave.) this Saturday, June 7, to introduce his new film Cold in July. The dark thriller stars Michael C. Hall, Sam Shepard and Don Johnson and is directed by Jim Mickle (We Are What We Are, Stake Land). Mickle will also be on hand to introduce the event and participate in a post-film Q&A/book signing with Lansdale. The film screens at 2 and 8pm. At 11pm that night, there will be a special screening of Lansdale’s 2002 horror comedy Bubba Ho-Tep (in which an aged Elvis and a crazy JFK battle an ancient mummy in an East Texas retirement home). Lansdale will hang around until then to judge a special Elvis costume contest. As if that weren’t enough, Lansdale’s daughter, up-and-coming country artist Kasey Lansdale, will perform songs from Cold in July’s soundtrack at the theater on Monday, June 9, starting at 7pm. If you’re a big Lansdale fan and can’t make it up to Santa Fe this weekend, hold tight. Lansdale is sticking around the Land of Enchantment and will visit Albuquerque’s Guild Cinema on Friday, June 13, to do it all over again.
