Claudia is a troubled teen confined in a very particular support center ruled with roughness by renowned psychiatrist Bernarda Alquicira. Coexisting with girls who have experienced similar trances, Claudia confronts horrible visions of Andrea, a beautiful intern who committed suicide a year ago. Another strange patient -Josefina- and doctor Lucia Franyutti -the right arm of Bernarda- seem to know the key to the bizarre return of Andrea, but even they are disturbed by the supernatural events that take place when the wind starts to blow.

Trivia

Josefina, the character played by Danny Perea, is a schizophrenic. The Mexican actress put herself in the introspective mood required for the character, listening to the music of the soundtrack from "Ulysses' Gaze", by Theo Angelopoulos, before the filming of her more dramatic scenes. See more »

Well, it's not THAT bad
16 March 2013 | by (Denver, Colorado and Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

A girl (Martha Higareda) tries to commit suicide by jumping off a bridge. When the attempt is thwarted, she is committed to strange mental institution for very sexy and suspiciously mature-looking Mexican girls. She and her equally troubled fellow inmates are attended to by a creepy female psychiatrist. Strange supernatural things begin to occur, largely connected to an eerie abandoned tower on the hospital grounds. Eventually the protagonist is possessed by a vengeful spirit. . .

This is a largely unnecessary remake of an earlier 1967 Mexican film with the same title ("Even the Wind Is Afraid"), but it's a pretty different film other than both have the same eerie looking tower and a girl-on-girl striptease scene (although naturally the scene here goes a lot farther). I understand why some of the anglo-phone Mexicans are contemptuous of this film, but very few people outside of Latin America have ever seen the original since (to my knowledge) it has never been released with English subtitles. And this is such a different film, it really deserves to be judged on its own merits (or lack thereof).

Martha Higareda is most famous for playing another boarding-school girl in the 2006 Mexican film "Ninas Mal" where she showed off her breasts a lot. She shows off pretty much everything here, but aside from that, they're very different movies--that is a raunchy comedy and this is pretty much a straight horror film. Of course, female nudity doesn't necessarily make for a good film, but it's also an odd thing to complain about. I did find it a little strange that these "teenage mental patients" all look at least twenty, but are wearing school uniforms for some reason (hmmm, sexy 20-year-old girls in and out school uniforms--I think I'm starting to understand now). As a HORROR film, this is pretty weak, and not really a spot on the original, but it is mildly entertaining at least, and there is nothing in it that really justifies some of the hate. . .
