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.

Critic Reviews for In the Shadow of the Moon

All Critics (53) | Top Critics (12)

In the Shadow of the Moon comes up short in regard to the human angle. Still, there's enough mystery to pull the plot through, and all the technical aspects of the made-for-Netlix film are top tier.

In the Shadow of the Moon is inconsistently fascinating, often muddled, and totally ignorant of why time travel rules.

[W]hen you least expect it, "In the Shadow of the Moon" delivers a powerful message about the roots of hate and the dangers it poses to society. Don't let this one stay in the shadows for long.

The bones of "In The Shadow of The Moon" are terrific.

September 29, 2019 | Full Review…

In the Shadow of the Moon isn't effective as sci-fi, action, noir, mystery, or even social commentary, even though it has elements of all of the above.
