The gory supernatural horror Wind Walkers is set for a release date, soon after its premiere at this year’s FrightFest on August 28th. The film will be available in the UK on DVD and via digital download on September 25th, and will be released later in the USA.
A group of friends and family descend into the swamp lands of the Everglades for their annual hunting trip, only to discover that they are the ones being hunted. A malevolent entity is tracking them and they begin to realise that one of their party, Sean (Zane Holtz), may be possessed by something he has brought home from a tour of duty in the Middle East – a demon of war so horrible and deadly that even he is unaware of its devilish presence.
Or are they facing something even more unspeakable? Is a legendary Native American curse about to unleash its dreadful legacy? Has the mysterious Wind Walker beast, thirsting for colonial revenge, returned to claim more souls? With no place to run, the group must make a final stand – before madness and murderous mayhem consumes them all.
Take a look at the trailer below, it looks like a Western-style horror, quite similar to the Zane Holtz-starring From Dusk Till Dawn series and The Walking Dead. The idea of paranoia and an unknown stalking presence also rings some The Thing bells. Despite these obvious comparisons, here’s to hoping that Wind Walkers will be able to stand on its own two feet and offer us something we haven’t seen before.
