      Audience Member Could’ve been better in many respects but the psychological ramifications are bold and daring Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 04/13/24 Full Review Alec B The out of chronological order editing seems like an attempt to mask the undercooked plot. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/10/24 Full Review Andrew B I loved this movie. It's got suspense, mystery, tension, atmosphere, fine performances, and a sense of dread that sustains itself until the credits roll. I hate the people that gave it a low rating. I'm so tired of audiences trashing movies like this because they're too stupid and biased to understand them. All of you know you are. Just shut up and watch some else if a movie doesn't adhere to your ridiculous standards. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/14/23 Full Review caro g THE WIND IS A SHOW ABOUT PIONEER DAYS AND WHAT IT WAS LIKE TO DISCOVER NEW LAND FOR SETTLING. IT IS A MUST WATCH. NATURE CAN VERY WELL BE SO AGAINST US THAT WE THINK THAT IT MUST BE A DEMON 😈 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/20/23 Full Review Xav N A true horror classic Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/21/23 Full Review Richard L If you're going for the contemplative slow burn, you have to commit to it, not just pay lip service to it. The Wind has a strong build up, but never really pays off. Observations that would have been better left to the audience are spelled out in painfully obvious terms, and the same goes for the (very limited) scares, which the director somehow felt needed to be explained the moment they took place. Aside from that, the acting is top notch and the sound design was especially impressive. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 04/01/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Jonathan Romney Film Comment Magazine In its quieter, sparer moments, however, The Wind begins to live up to the unstated obliqueness of its title. May 10, 2019 Full Review Roxana Hadadi Pajiba Western horror The Wind uses isolation and barrenness to spin a spooky tale about hysteria, patriarchy, and religious fervor. Apr 16, 2019 Full Review Sara Michelle Fetters MovieFreak.com A striking psychological horror-western, director Emma Tammi's debut The Wind is something special. Rated: 3.5/4 Apr 12, 2019 Full Review Emma Wolfe SpookyAstronauts It is really compelling. Rated: 7/10 Dec 28, 2020 Full Review Charles Koplinski Reel Talk with Chuck and Pam A solid performance from Caitlin Gerard as an abandoned woman who slowly loses her mind trying to survive on the open plains anchors this film and helps us stick with it when the script reaches its rough patches. Rated: 2.5/4.0 Nov 18, 2020 Full Review Dennis Harvey 48 Hills It's not in the same league, but it's still an atmospheric, sometimes chilling cut above the genre norm.
