Check out the evil which is lurking on the frontier in the new western horror movie, The Wind, and its coming for a woman who settles in a remote stretch of land on the 19th-century American land that it resides.
I love westerns but I don’t think I have ever seen a western horror in my life, so this is a good fresh subject to cover. We don’t really see a lot of movies where these two genres mashed up and something came out this good, and this one looks damn good and spooky!
The film was directed by Emma Tammi, and it’s described as “a nightmarish yet empathetic exploration of domestic solitude, skilfully conjuring — in bone-chilling visual and sonic strokes — an indescribable spectre that seems to emanate from the abysses of the night itself.”
Here’s the official synopsis that was shared:
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.
The movie stars Caitlin Gerard (Insidious: The Last Key), Julia Goldani Telles (Slender Man), and Ashley Zukerman.
The Wind will hit theaters on April 5th, 2019.
