Worth 'the wind' in action in this suspense/horror thriller.
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Had seen this movie way back in 1987, when it was just released. Although, never accessible again, its worth viewing for its story line, in particular 'the wind' in action. The suspense/horror is gripping. Hope that its VHS price reduces, as its a collectable."
Good movie, worth seeing

"I haven't seen the DVD, but I have seen the VHS of this, and it is a pretty creepy movie. What I really wanted to comment on was how great the cover art for this DVD is! Wow, a real improvement of the old cover art, and really, just a great image! I love the little picture of the guy chasing the girl along the bloody blade. Pretty much fits with the creepy movie, about an author who struggles to survive a night of unrelenting terror at the hands of a mad stalker, all set in an isolated castle in Greece. Great movie, a definite recommendation."
Terrorizing, creepy and dark.

"Meg Foster is terrorized by Hauger relentlesly. A woman alone, writing a novel and a man outside her door, stalking her makes for a good thriller. I am excited to find this video again. I couldn't remember the name of it, but I remember the woman with haunting eyes. I traced her back to Rutger Hauer, and bingo! The Wind. Watch it, rent it, buy it. It is a great chiller thriller. But one word of caution for women: DON'T WATCH IT ALONE...ESPECIALLY AT NIGHT!"
Decent thriller. . .

Grab your favorite movie-viewing blanket, lock your doors, pop some corn, and enjoy this 80's horror flick. It is a flick, after all, not a film. I enjoyed the concept of the movie. Meg Foster, with those eyes and earthy presence, easily retains one's attention.
The plot: Mystery writer travels to a seaside Greek village, rents a castle-turned villa, and prepares to work on her latest novel. Forewarned of the violent, nightly wind by the property's owner, she takes little heed. (If she hadn't ignored his foreshadowing, then we wouldn't have a story, now would we?) A creeped-out psychotic groundskeeper (along with the ominous WIND) sets about torturing her, beginning on the first night.
The ending: Just watch the flick.
My major complaint with "The Wind" is that it is rather poorly edited. The director seemed to prefer long shots--or perhaps his budget prefered them! However, these are technical critiques and really matter very little. Meg Foster rocks, as always.
The dvd is way beyond reasonably priced, right here on amazon. For virtually
nothing, you can just buy it and prepare for an interesting, fun time."
