A haunting period piece that sets horror against the American frontier of the 1800s, THE WIND embraces its desolate landscape both visually and sonically. Elizabeth Macklin (Caitlin Gerard) has just settled with her husband on a Western homestead. As loneliness takes hold, an evil presence in the pastures manifests itself through a series of strange events. Elizabeth’s husband dismisses her fears but as the story unfolds, a sense of danger in the wide open plains continues to mount. With its meticulously composed frames and atmospheric score ratcheting up the tension, this folk-horror masterpiece signals the arrival of a truly unique voice in cinema.
