The new Netflix sci-fi film In the Shadow of the Moon is part cop movie, part crime movie, part mystery and part sci-fi.
Boyd Holbrook plays Thomas Lockhart, a cop on a mission to track down a serial killer who can’t seem to be killed and keeps coming back every 9 years to commit more crimes, without aging.
Lockhart’s obsession with the criminal threatens to destroy his family and career and might also drive him mad.
This new Netflix sci-fi film from director Jim Mickle appears to have come out of nowhere, though it looks like a nice treat for sci-fi fans.
It definitely comes across as more of a cop movie first and foremost, with added sci-fi elements surrounding time travel.
It’s intriguing stuff, though films like these can often become convoluted if the script isn’t handled carefully.
The trailer suggests that it’s a film you’d want to be paying close attention to at all times and it will be interesting to see how Mickle brings together the film’s mystery and sci-fi elements.
Michael C. Hall, Bokeem Woodbine and Cleopatra Coleman co-star and the film hits Netflix on 27 September 2019.
