Run In Fear From THE WINDMILL MASSACRE Promo!

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
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.

    This looks awesome..it actually reminds me a lot of "I know what you did last summer", with the main in raincoat, can't see his face, with a weapon, etc...even the location of this with the big windmill, seems a bit familiar to those coastal NC towns that IKWYDLS were filmed.

    M is for Miller?

    Looks good....and promising. I like the windmill........it works well as a foreboding set piece/character. The short has a grimy look and feel, which is good. So much horror these days comes across as antiseptic. One of the things that really pulled me into TCM as a teenager, was the griminess of it all.....it completely felt like something that could happen in the town I live close too (very rural, very grimy). This already looks better than "Hatchet" to me (while "Hatchet" has some good make-up/FX......the script/dialogue/acting is always complete crap......and feels really dumbed down.)
