Goofs

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 »

Disappointing

I had high hopes for this movie. The trailer reminded me of The Witch (2015), which is one of my favorite horror movies. But The Wind never grabbed my attention. I told myself that it only had a slow start, but by the end I was simply waiting for it to be over. I thought the two main leads had good performances. I haven't seen Ashley Zukerman in much, but I loved him in Manhattan.

The cinematography was good, some silhouetted shots stood out. The music, especially when something scary happened, didn't really fit.

The story grabbed me at points, trying to uncover the puzzle. But there's really not much to it. If you go in with lowered expectations, and you're into the idea of a slow horror mystery, then there might be something for you here. Otherwise I wouldn't really recommend it.
