This April, Arrow Video unleashes The Wind (1986)...
...Arrow Video has announced that they will be releasing 80s slasher The Wind on blu-ray on April 14th, 2020! Directed by Nico Mastorakis (Island of Death), the film sounds like the slasher version of Crawl but with homicidal people, and features a few recognizable names that make me wonder how I've never seen this.
In The Wind:
"When mystery novelist Sian Anderson arrives in the remote Greek town of Monemvasia, Elias Appleby the pompous British landlord of the house she’s renting warns her of two dangers: the wind, which gets dangerously strong at night, and Phil his sleazy and suspicious American handyman. As night falls and the wind starts howling, Sian witnesses the shocking sight of Phil burying Elias’s dead body in a shallow grave in his front garden! Trapped indoors from the raging, tree-branch-breaking wind, Sian must play a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with the murderous Phil, who’ll stop at nothing to silence this inconvenient witness!"
That's a hell of a setup (supposedly it's more of a hurricane than a strong wind), and one that has my soul howling for some cornball horror.
The film stars Meg Foster (They Live), Wings Hauser (Vice Squad), Robert Morley and Steve Railsback (Lifeforce).
