Happy Monday, and Happy Memorial Day! Bored and looking for something to watch? Well, I have a horror movie that may be worth your time. IT’s another day for Netflix movie reviews.
This week, I’d like to review the indie horror film, The Windmill.
Written by Nick Jongerius, Chris W. Mitchell, and Suzy Quid. Directed by Nick Jongerius. Starring: Patrick, Baladi, and Charlotte Beaumont, this film focuses on a group of tourists, as they go on a harmless (or is it?) Windmill tour of Holland.
The film starts off with a flashback, of a gas can being poured all over a house, with flashes of the aftermath. Flash forward to present day, and we see Jennifer, known at this time as Julie, as her house family figures out her secret. Well, a secret at least. This sets the film into motion as we meet the rest of the tourists and their futile attempts at having fun in Amsterdam.
A father and son taking a boat ride, having a little get away it seems, a doctor struggling with a drug addiction, drawing in a museum, a French girl trying to make it as a photographer, and finally a military man, being surprised in the red-light district. What do all of these people have in common you may ask, they all have a secret, they all have a past, that will come to haunt them on this tour.
Upon arriving on the bus, the group is greeted by the tour guide Aba, who welcomes Jennifer, who doesn’t have a ticket by saying, “There’s always room for one more sinner.”
That’s when I kind of guessed a plot point. Let’s see if you guess it too.
Now I won’t spill their secrets in this review, you’ll just have to watch it for yourself, but what follows when the bus breaks down is a nightmare from hell, literally. Who will survive, who won’t make it through the night, and were any of the tourists justified in doing what they have done?
If you watch it, let me know in the comments, what you think or thought!
Happy movie watching!
