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.

  • If you're thinking "Repulsion by John Ford," you're more on the right track than you could possibly know.

    Apr 11, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • "The Wind" is ultimately more allegorical than literal. It's not about history, or pioneer life, or bloodthirsty ghosts. It's about a loneliness so overwhelming that it becomes terrifying.

    Apr 5, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The Wind flirts with some interesting themes about postpartum depression, female jealousy, hallucinatory paranoia, and hellfire possession, all goosed by a feminist twist in what's typically a masculine genre.

    Apr 5, 2019 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • This pioneer chiller shines a gender-specific spotlight on the ways isolation and hardship can ravage a woman's mind.

    Apr 4, 2019 | Full Review…
  • This is indie horror at its best.

    Apr 3, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Tammi refuses to let the "The Wind" devolve into a typical, and predictable, horror movie.
