Holland becomes hellish in the trailer for slasher The Windmill

The Windmill Nick Jongerius

Described as "a fun and nostalgic throwback to edge-of-your-seat horror classics like FRIDAY THE 13TH and A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET", director Nick Jongerius's slasher THE WINDMILL is coming to VOD and theatres in October courtesy of XLrator Media, and just over a month out from the release a trailer has arrived online. 

Based on an idea by Jongerius and written by Suzy Quid and Chris W. Mitchell, the film tells the following "JEEPERS CREEPERS meets FRIDAY THE 13TH" (according to Scream Magazine) story: 

A group of unsuspecting tourists awaken a mysterious evil whilst on a trip through the Dutch countryside. When their tour bus breaks down, the strangers are forced to seek shelter in an abandoned barn beside a sinister windmill where, legend has it, a Devil-worshipping miller once ground the bones of locals instead of grain. As members of the group start disappearing, secrets are revealed that seem to mark them all for doom.

Noah Taylor, Charlotte Beaumont, Patrick Baladi, Tanroh Ishida, and Ben Batt star.

The trailer indicates that this slasher is going to go in stranger directions than I expected, and while the supernatural aspect could be interesting the main draw of this film for me is the simple presence of a hideous slasher wielding a scythe. As a fan of all the movies it's being compared to, I'm totally on board for checking it out.

XLrator Media will be releasing THE WINDMILL on VOD and iTunes on October 25th, with a theatrical release to follow on October 28th.
