Classic 1960s Mexican Horror Film
Kardius | USA | 10/20/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Hasta el viento tiene miedo stands out from other Mexican horror films because the fear is due to supernatural and psychological reasons, as opposed to the campy monsters, demented doctors, vampire women and masked wrestlers that have characterized Mexican horror. However, the film also suffers from cheap production values, and has a decidedly late 60s look, so I'm afraid the film will still seem very campy, especially for Anglo viewers used to a more sophisticated look. As the other reviewers pointed out, the DVD release (like the film) is cheap, and has no subtitles. It looks pretty good, though, and the lack of subtitles is because these cheap Spanish DVDs are being marketed to Latino viewers who, presumably, speak the language. I don't think there's enough market out there to justify a remastered DVD edition with subtitles. Also check out "El libro de piedra", the follow-up film, which is also available without subtitles, and "Venenos para las hadas", which does have them."
Are you joking?

"The real name of the movie on the cover of this DVD is 'Los Murciélagos' ('The Bats') from 1964... Alma Delia Fuentes and Joaquín Cordero did not make 'Hasta el Viento tiene Miedo' (1968)... I'm not going to buy this DVD just because that simple reason... I am still waiting for 'Más negro que la noche' and the real 'Hasta el viento tiene miedo' DVDs; Carlos Enrique Taboada made both, not Juan José Ortega... a quick visit to the IMDB can erase any doubt about it... The only thing to trust in this page is the Description of the movie..."
Great Picture -Some spoilers-

"This one of the most scariest movies of all time. It doesn't relly on gore scenes for the effect of scare you out, but on the windy black nights and our fears of see a ghost. There are two mayor scenes on the movie, one is when students Kitty and Marina see for the first time the presence of Andrea on the top window of three store cellar after chasing her friend Claudia, and the other is when teacher Lucia (Maricruz Olivier) talks with gardener Diego about her students visions of Andrea. The dialog is supreme:
-Do not seem you very surprised.
-No...How could be the poor little one a ghost? So pretty and with those sad eyes...(seeing to the floor)
-Have you ever seen her? (With a very surprised and scared face)
-Yes...(wait a second and then) you don't?
Lucia walks to the door very surprised and confused...
-How could I see her! She's death!
You must see it!!! Five stars!!!
