sorry for the mistakes!
Even the wind is afraid
Fast as the wind, in twenty-four minutes we already have the story
placed and all the protagonists. And so, in the central minutes we can
see filling moments that lead us then to a second part in which the
story returns to be interesting.
Aside from this initial haste, "Even the wind is afraid" is a pretty
Mexican horror film by Carlos Enrique Taboada, an icon of the genre.
This is a film that despite the signs of age remains pleasant still
today, showing a certain skill of the director in managing suspense.
Taboada works very well both with the music composed by Raúl
Lavista, an appreciated Mexican composer, and with light, increasing
the sense of anxiety and terror. To this we must still add some
noteworthy directorial solutions and light moments of relief, I don't
mean comic but humorous and some sexy lashes for the years in which it
An old-fashioned fashion horror that tells us the story of Claudia and her companions.
Claudia suffering from nightmares for some time, in which she hears
voices and sees a strange figure of a girl, who appears hanged from the
ceiling in the scene that opens the film. She is a pupil of a selective
college, headed by Mrs. Bernarda, an iron principal who is not prone to
feelings. The girls one day enter the college tower, a forbidden place
and as punishment they are forced to stay in school during the
holidays. Of course, the strange figure Claudia continues to rage
and also shows herself to the other students in the nights when a
strong wind blows. It is the Andrea's spirit, talented student, who
committed suicide several years before and who has now returned to get
revenge on those who pushed her to the extreme gesture.
An excellent ending sinister and the grotesque closes a film that apart
from preparing the way for horror moments, (taking away a little
surprise) is still a pleasant vision today. Not to be missed and with a
prominent cast for Mexican cinema.
