ARROW ESSENTIALS - SLASHERS • Horror, Thriller
1986 • United States • Directed by Nico Mastorakis
What would you do if going outside meant being killed by a raging hurricane, but staying indoors meant being hacked to pieces by a sickle wielding maniac? Arrow Video proudly presents 'The Wind', from prolific genre filmmaker Nico Mastorakis, the director behind such cult classics as 'Hired to Kill' and 'Island of Death'. When mystery novelist Sian Anderson (Meg Foster, 'They Live') arrives in the remote Greek town of Monemvasia, Elias Appleby (Robert Morley, 'The African Queen'), 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 (Wings Hauser, 'Vice Squad'), 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! A tense and thrilling blend of Euro-horror and late 80s slasher, 'The Wind' is a stalk 'n' slash hidden gem, presented here for the first time on digital. Get ready to be blown away!
