XLrator Media, the distribution company behind John Ridley’s “Jimi: All is By My Side,” “The Machine,” and more, will soon release the new horror film “The Windmill,” starring Noah Taylor, best known for his performances in “Game of Thrones,” “Almost Famous,” and “The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.” The film follows a group of unsuspecting tourists who discover a mysterious evil while traveling through the Dutch countryside. When their bus breaks down, they’re forced to seek shelter besides a windmill where supposedly a Satan-obsessed miller grinds peoples’ bones instead of grain. It co-stars Charlotte Beaumont (“Jupiter Ascending”), Patrick Baladi (“Rush”), Tanroh Ishida (“The Railway Man”) and Ben Batt (“Captain America: The First Avenger”). Watch an exclusive clip from the film below.
“It’s been a dream come true to shoot my feature film debut with an international cast like Noah Taylor and Charlotte Beaumont,” said director Nick Jongerius in a statement after XLrator acquired the film. “It was my aim from the beginning to use Dutch heritage and locations as the film’s backdrop. I’ve always been fascinated – and scared – by windmills. I can assure you that people will look at them differently after seeing the film.”
“The Windmill” will be released on VOD and iTunes on October 25 and in theaters on October 28 from XLrator Media.
