What is, sadly, not a film about a group of windmills being massacred or a group of windmills going on a massacre, The Windmill Massacre has been picked up by Kaleidoscope Film Distribution. The company will handle sales at the upcoming European Film Market during Berlinale, where we could also expect some film footage to debut.
Telling the story of a group of devil-worshippers, The Windmill Massacre has been directed Nick Jongerius – a producer of Frankenstein’s Army – and stars Charlotte Beaumont, Noah Taylor, Tanroh Ishida, Fiona Hampton, Ben Batt and Adam Thomas Wright.
Jennifer is an Australian girl on the run from her past who washes up in Amsterdam. In a desperate attempt to stay one step ahead of the authorities, she joins a coach-load of tourists embarking on a tour of Holland’s world famous windmills. When the bus breaks down in the middle of nowhere, she and the other tourists are forced to seek shelter in a disused shed beside a sinister windmill where, legend has it, a Devil-worshiping miller once ground the bones of locals instead of grain. As members of the group start to disappear, Jennifer learns that they all have something in common – a shared secret that seems to mark them all for doom.
You can also check out a few stills for the film below which give us a look at the bloody delights and frights we can expect when The Windmill Massacre reaches our screens.
If you think windmills are something silly to be afraid of, then director Jongerius has a few words for you, “I have always been fascinated, and scared at the same time, by windmills. I can assure you will look at them differently from now on.” Wonderful, we shall be crossing the Netherlands off of our travel list then.
The Windmill Massacre has a release date slated for this Spring, so the release of a trailer is imminent.
