ENJOY A DOSE OF FRONTIER MADNESS AND PARANOIA IN EMMA TAMMI'S "THE WIND!"
Scream Factory's latest IFC Midnight title is an indie Horror-Western that has earned itself some critical praise. THE WIND is being compared to other recent slow burn hits like THE WITCH and THE BABADOOK (two films I was not a big fan of), so if that gets your blood pumping, you may just want to pick up a copy of this movie when it hits DVD & Blu-ray disc tomorrow!
Synopsis: An unseen evil terrorizes an isolated homestead in this chilling tale of madness, paranoia, and otherworldly horror. Lizzy (Caitlin Gerard) is a tough, resourceful frontierswoman settling a remote stretch of land on the 19th-century American frontier. Far 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 presence that her husband (Ashley Zukerman) dismisses as mere 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.
