Charlotte Beaumont in The Windmill Massacre (2016)

Everything but the Mouse

Jennifer Harris (Charlotte Beaumont) has found herself on the run for some thing which happened back in Australia and even though she has made it to Holland her past keeps on catching up with her. It is after her latest scrape with the authorities that she finds herself sneaking on to a coach full of tourists who are visiting Amsterdam's old windmills. But when the bus breaks down in the middle of nowhere not only do they find themselves being picked off one by one by the mysterious legend of a nearby windmill but the fact they are all there is not as accidental as everyone thought.

Let me get to the point; "The Windmill Massacre" is all about the slice and dice, the blood and guts when it comes to the way each person dies and basically each death scene tries to be more graphic and shocking than the last. Now there are some twists thrown in to the story as well as one detour from the expected but I won't lie as the storyline is basic and nothing more than a vehicle for each scene of gore filled murder.

And I have to say that it is the work of the special effects team who basically salvage "The Windmill Massacre" as from gashes being slit in throats to intestines cascading out like a slinky dropping down a big step it is visually effective. Well I say effective but only in being gory because truth be told as a horror movie "The Windmill Massacre" suffers from a total lack of atmosphere. It also lacks any standout acting although in fairness none of it is terrible, just generic.

What this all boils down to is that if you enjoy horror movies which are all about the gore and blood splattering then some of "The Windmill Massacre" will entertain. But beyond that this horror movie has little to offer other than a generic storyline accompanied by generic acting.
