The desolate and isolated frontier is the perfect setting for a horror movie. The lack of people, technology, and understanding of the world around you can cause a person to go insane, questioning the reality around them. That’s what seems to be happening in The Wind, where the edge of the world is at the doorstep, and you don’t know what lies beyond it. 

The Wind, set in the Western frontier of the late 1800s has a woman driven mad by her harsh surroundings as supernatural occurrence begin. The trailer shows an empty wasteland dotted by quaint homesteads. It’s gorgeous and haunting. But isolation grows paranoia and eventually, strange claw marks appear, windows blow out, and candles and fires distinguish and reignite. 

Emma Tammi directs a screenplay written by Teresa Sutherland. The movie stars Julia Goldani Telles (The Affair, Slender Man), Caitlin Gerard (Magic Mike, The Social Network, Insidious: The Last Key), and Ashley Zukerman. 

The Wind makes its world premiere tonight at the Toronto International Film Festival.
