Filmmaker Emma Tammi has gone from documentary films to jumping headfirst into psychological horror with her latest film “The Wind.” And after it’s impressive debut at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival, Tammi’s terrifying tale of isolation in the 19th-century American frontier will finally be available for film fans to enjoy worldwide.
In the new trailer for the film, the premise of “The Wind” is made clear. A married couple enjoys their life of isolation on the frontier. Then when a newlywed couple moves in right near, things start to get a little crazy. The idea of a demon, or something equally as terrifying, haunting the plains becomes something of a reality, as one woman attempts to find out what’s going on.
Our review said that Tammi’s film “checks enough of the right boxes to please horror fans; it’s creepy, features some gruesome images, and has a couple of standout scares.”
The film stars Caitlin Gerard, Julia Goldani Telles, Miles Anderson, and Dylan McTee.
“The Wind” will hit select theaters and On Demand on April 5.
Here’s the synopsis:
THE WIND explores an unseen evil as it 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.
