Movie Info

An unseen evil haunts the homestead in this chilling, folkloric tale of madness, paranoia, and otherworldly terror. Lizzy (Caitlin Gerard) is a tough, resourceful frontierswoman settling a remote stretch of land on the 19th-century American frontier. Isolated from civilization in a desolate wilderness where the wind never stops howling, she begins to sense a sinister presence that seems to be borne of the land itself, an overwhelming dread that her husband (Ashley Zukerman) dismisses as superstition. When a newlywed couple arrives on a nearby homestead, their presence amplifies Lizzy's fears, setting into motion a shocking chain of events. Masterfully blending haunting visuals with pulse-pounding sound design, director Emma Tammi evokes a godforsaken world in which the forces of nature come alive with quivering menace.

It's refreshing to see such an original stab at this type of indie genre-bender, especially one told from a strictly female point of view.

"The Wind" doesn't seek to make infallible heroes of its women, but to understand and empathize with even their most unforgivable acts. And it's a hugely promising debut in terms of Tammi's steady, assured directorial craft.

While some of the story elements are missing or thin, Tammi demonstrates a real knack for visual storytelling and mood; balancing tone and pace while pulling off some very creepy moments.

The Wind is a western, but it's not about a man. It's also a folkloric, supernatural horror but it's not exactly about monsters, either. The Wind is a film about a woman, and the domestic space she tends and defends.

The good elements in The Wind only serve to remind you of the potential for this story, but the final product is just a lesser version of much better films.

Oct 17, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

The Wind could have been much better if editing and creative timelines took a step back, and allowed the harrowing story and stellar performances to be the focus of the terror. As it is, the film tries far too hard to tell a tale that needs no frills.
