Look out Holland, things are about to get bloody.
After serving as a producer on Richard Raaphorst's Frankenstein's Army
, writer-director Nick Jongerius set out to create his own exercise in horror with The Windmill Massacre
. Envisioned as an eventual English language feature Jongerius has started off instead with a Dutch language short film as a proof of concept to demonstrate that this sort of thing can be done in the Netherlands at all. And now it's up to you to judge whether he's correct because the short is finished in both a 12 minute version - which is being held back for festivals and industry use at the moment - and a 4 minute version, which you'll find below. Here's how Jongerius describes his creation:
The Windmill Massacre is an English-spoken modern day slasher
situated in the Netherlands, a horror film similar to films such as: The
Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Hatchet and Halloween. The Windmill Massacre
will combine all the richness and traditions that the Netherlands has to
offer, but then drenches them in blood. The film will reveal a new face
of terror, a new addition to the slasher genre in the likes of Jason,
Michael and Freddy. He is called: the Miller. The perception of the
Netherlands as a country of green fields of grass, grazing black &
white cows, tulip fields, wide open skies and off course Windmills will
never be the same again after seeing The Windmill Massacre...
The four minute short looks pretty damn good (and bloody) to me. Check it out below.
