Movie Info

In 1988, Philadelphia police officer Thomas Lockhart (Boyd 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. Directed by Jim Mickle and also starring Michael C. Hall and Cleopatra Coleman, 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.

Audience Reviews for In the Shadow of the Moon

  • 6d ago
    It's refreshing to find these mid range budget movies on Netflix. The film is unafraid to attempt high concept storytelling and for the better part of the film, it works. There are some strong flaws, but without diving into the storyline and giving things away, I'll stay clear from examples. If you can go with the film, like a comic book, you'll enjoy the twists and turns. It's really nice to see Netflix relying on these high concept thrillers to lure the casual moviegoer who are trapped by the mega budgeted franchise films being hurled at them. Not a great film, but it was interesting and has an out there storyline. 27/09/2019
