First Full Trailer for 'The Windmill' Horror Film from The Netherlands
"Without windmills, there would be no Holland." XLrator Media has debuted the first official trailer for indie horror The Windmill, originally known as The Windmill Massacre, from The Netherlands. The film is about an Australian girl escaping her past visiting The Netherlands, where she ends up on a tourist bus taking people to all the famous windmills in the country. The bus breaks down near an infamous windmill where "legend has it, a Devil-worshiping miller once ground the bones of locals instead of grain" and people begin to disappear. The cast includes Charlotte Beaumont, Noah Taylor, Patrick Baladi, Ben Batt, Tanroh Ishida and Fiona Hampton. This seems like it might be fun, with plenty of gore for horror fans. One review says this film "isn't your average slasher" so don't expect the usual going in. Check it out below.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Nick Jongerius' The Windmill, found directly on YouTube:
Jennifer (Beaumont) 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. The Windmill is directed by Dutch filmmaker Nick Jongerius, making his feature debut after shorts and TV work previously. The screenplay is written by Chris W. Mitchell & Suzy Quid. The Windmill will open in select US theaters + on VOD starting October 28th this fall. Interested?

Egis must have been a tax dodge funding movie.

Same for me. And I fear what this movie will do for the reputation of my country. "This isn't hell, this is Holland..."

The trailer sucks, so this will do more damage than good for our little country... 🙂

I am afraid you are spot on, Ari...

Some good actors in it, but the whole thing looks very routinely done... However, I am glad nobody misused Amsterdam for shallow horror film ...

Lol this looks bad, im from Amsterdam and even some B movies from here look better, like "De lift" and "Amsterdamed" At least we have Spoorloos (The Vanishing from criterion)
