Watch the trailer for the Netflix original film In the Shadow of the Moon starring Boyd Holbrook, Michael C. Hall and Cleopatra Coleman. The film premieres on Sept. 27.

Just in time for Halloween, Netflix will add a new original psychological thriller,  In the Shadow of the Moon starring Boyd Holbrook, Michael C. Hall and Cleopatra Coleman. The movie will be released Sept. 27 only on Netflix.

The film takes place in and around Philadelphia in 1988 where police officer Thomas Lockhart was tracking a serial killer. Nine years later, the killer resurfaces, according to the Netflix synopsis. Lockhart becomes obsessed with solving the crime and trying to find the truth, an obsession that threatens to destroy his career, his family, and possibly his sanity.

Gregory Weidman and Geoff Tock wrote the screenplay for the film, and Jim Mickle directed the movie.

In the Shadow of the Moon is one of Netflix’s horror/thriller picks, aka Netflix and Chills, for Halloween.

Mickle has also directed the Vampire road movie, Stake Land, the cannibal-family saga, We Are What We Are, and neo-noir crime drama, Cold in July. None of these movies follow standard genre elements and contain interesting twists to their plots guaranteed to put a viewer on the edge of their seats.

We can expect that same unpredictability with this film as well, and with the stellar cast of Holbrook, who starred in the Netflix series Narcos, Hall, who starred in Dexter and Netflix’s Safe,  and Coleman, who is best known for James vs his future self. 

Bokeem Woodbine, who stars in Wu-Tang: An American Saga, and Sarah Dugdale, who starred in The Bad Seed, also star in the Netflix original film. 

In the Shadow of the Moon is scheduled for a festival premiered at Fantastic Fest the week before it opens on Netflix on Sept. 27.
