A supernatural thriller set in the Western frontier of the late 1800s, The Wind stars Caitlin Gerard (INSIDIOUS: THE LAST KEY) as a plains-woman driven mad by the harshness and isolation of the untamed land. The film is directed by Emma Tammi, written by Teresa Sutherland and stars Gerard, Ashley Zukerman, and Julia Goldani Telles. It was produced by Soapbox Films and Divide/Conquer.
The character Emma seems to enjoy Gothic literature. Among the books from her collection that read aloud at various points in the film are Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and Ann Radcliffe's The Mysteries of Udolpho. See more »
At the 11.28-minute time mark: Elisabeth is attacked by wolves and it's daytime, the sun is up (it might be around midday). To get away from them, she takes shelter in her cabin and shoots them through the door. Immediately she peeps through the hole in the door caused by the bullet and it's clearly dusk. See more »
The wind is a fresh breath of ol'wild west, and the conquering of the blessed land over the ocean, and the fertile grounds to build on and harvest from, just if it hadnt been for ''the wind. its a smallcast horrordrama, the story couldve been better and more fulfilled in its narrative, but the acting are good, no major flaws found, and the lovations and settings are mwellpicked and well created.
the big dilemmais to me : is it a horror film or is it just a drama of desillusioned womanhood, due to far too much loneliness on the prairie, with vast distances to the nearest neighbour, that might be even more insane, and the burden of having a husband that wont see or listen to whats tormenting this womens mind must have been a gruelling terror spiced up with religous faith and its opposite, the devil, as were a usual cause for womens insanity in a mans mind,''shes been dancing with the devil, and riding to bloksberg on her broomstick, to enjoy satyrical orgies with satan in hell''- kinda explonation that especially reverends made up mat that time.
so whatever its is, its a good film, a bit slow and dark visuals, but the grumpy old man found this more than recommendable
