Enjoyable enough...
3 October 2019 | by paulclaassenSee all my reviews

I have fond memories of 'The Wind' watching it as a teenager. Having seen it now, though, I have mixed feelings - mainly due to the anti-climax ending.

'The Wind' is a murder thriller through the eyes of a mystery writer. Unfortunately the film itself doesn't offer much in the line of mystery, as the killer is revealed early in the film. Since the film doesn't really hide any details, it is fast-paced and also rather suspenseful. The film is mainly about Sian Anderson (Meg Foster) trying to outwit the killer in a desperate attempt to stay alive. No reason is ever given why the antagonist tries to kill her, though, and one can only assume him to be psychologically unstable.

'The Wind' is definitely not the best of scripts and doesn't have the best of dialogue, yet it is still quite enjoyable. Nothing is really ever explained in the film, and the abrupt ending ruins it a bit.
