Boyd Holbrook fought Wolverine in “Logan,” an alien monster in “The Predator,” and in his new movie “In the Shadow of the Moon,” he’ll fight yet another sort of mutant warrior who can’t be killed.
“In the Shadow of the Moon” is the latest psychological thriller from Netflix, and it combines a gritty, neo-noir mystery with a supernatural element.
Set in Philadelphia in 1988, Holbrook plays a cop who tracks down a serial killer responsible for a strange number of grizzly murders that took place across the city in a short period of time. The perpetrator is a young woman (Cleopatra Coleman), but in their fight, she stumbles in front of a train and is killed. Now every nine years later on the anniversary of the murders, she’s back and committing more atrocities that defy logic, all while Holbrook becomes obsessed in unlocking her secrets.
The original film is written by Geoffrey Tock and Gregory Weidman and is directed by Jim Mickle. “Dexter’s” Michael C. Hall also stars in the film alongside Bokeem Woodbine, Rudi Dharmalingam and Rachel Keller.
Brian Kavanaugh Jones, Ben Pugh, Rian Cahill, Linda Moran and Jim Mickle are the producers on the film, which is a production of 42, Automatik and Nightshade.
“In the Shadow of the Moon” debuts on Netflix on Sept. 27.
