Director Nick Jongerius' international slasher flick The Windmill Massacre promises something uniquely inspired with it's set of characters different from the genre's norm.
Following a small group of tourists from all over the world, all of whom seem to be haunted by their pasts, the tale takes us into the back roads of Holland where they seek refuge in a old windmill that harbors secrets with a taste for intestines and sinful souls.
The first act is a nice little character's intro that spends just the right amount of time setting each of them up, which is a rarity in these types of films.  Sadly, it's quick to fall into cliché after cliché with minimal surprising twists which is such a disappointment considering what it might have been.
