The director who gave us the vampires of STAKE LAND and the rat zombies of MULBERRY STREET now tackles heady science fiction thrills with IN THE SHADOW OF THE MOON, coming to Netflix September 27. Jump past the jump to see the new trailer.

Scripted by Gregory Weidman and Geoff Tock, IN THE SHADOW OF THE MOON stars Boyd Holbrook, Cleopatra Coleman, Bokeem Woodbine, Rudi Dharmalingam, Rachel Keller and Michael C. Hall. The synopsis: “In 1988, Philadelphia police officer Thomas Lockhart [Holbrook], hungry to become a detective, begins tracking a serial killer who mysteriously resurfaces every nine years. But when the killer’s crimes begin to defy all scientific explanation, Locke’s obsession with finding the truth threatens to destroy his career, his family, and possibly his sanity. IN THE SHADOW OF THE MOON is a genre-blending psychological thriller that examines the power of time, and how its passing can either bring us together or tear us apart.” The movie’s Netflix page can be seen here.
