XLrator Snags Rights to the Promising Shocker ‘The Windmill’

XLrator is a genre fan’s best friend. These horror loyalists continue to deliver quality picture after quality picture, and it doesn’t seem that there are plans of slowing down in the future. That’s a good thing, especially when you see a promising affair like The Windmill being picked up for North American Distribution (through XLrator’s Macabre label)!

Here’re a few valuable facts from the official press release:

XLRATOR MEDIA ACQUIRES “THE WINDMILL” FOR NORTH AMERICAN DISTRIBUTION ON ITS ACCLAIMED “MACABRE” LABEL

LOS ANGELES (July 28, 2016) – XLrator Media has acquired North American distribution rights to the suspense thriller THE WINDMILL and will release the film this October on its acclaimed “MACABRE” genre label. The film has its world premiere at FrightFest next month.

THE WINDMILL marks the directorial debut of Nick Jongerius (producer of Frankenstein’s Army and Dead End), based on his original idea with screenplay by Suzy Quid and Chris W. Mitchell. The film stars Noah Taylor (“Game of Thrones,” “Peaky Blinders”), Charlotte Beaumont, Patrick Baladi, Tanroh Ishida and Ben Batt. It was produced by Daniel Koefoed (Frankenstein’s Army), Nick Jongerius, Guirec Van Slingelandt (Kidnapping Mr. Heineken) and Eric Brenner (Amnesiac).

“THE WINDMILL is a fun and nostalgic throwback to edge-of-your-seat horror classics like Friday the 13th and The Nightmare on Elm Street from the talented producers of Frankenstein’s Army. Halloween is going to be a lot scarier this year!” said XLrator Media CEO Barry Gordon.

The film stars Noah Taylor (Game of Thrones), Charlotte Beaumont (Jupiter Ascending), Patrick Baladi (Rush), Tanroh Ishida (47 Ronin) and Ben Batt (Captain America: The First Avenger).

Daniel Koefoed (Frankenstein’s Army), Nick Jongerius, Guirec Van Slingelandt (Kidnapping Mr. Heineken) and Eric Brenner (Amnesiac) produce.

Synopsis: A group of unsuspecting tourists awaken a mysterious evil whilst on a trip through the Dutch countryside. When their tour bus breaks down, the strangers are forced to seek shelter in an abandoned barn beside a sinister windmill where, legend has it, a Devil-worshipping miller once ground the bones of locals instead of grain. As members of the group start disappearing, secrets are revealed that seem to mark them all for doom.
