The Windmill

Jennifer is an Australian girl on the run from her past who washes up in Amsterdam. In a desperate attempt to stay one step ahead of the authorities, she joins a coach-load of tourists embarking on a tour of Holland’s world famous windmills.  When the bus breaks down in the middle of nowhere, she and the other tourists are forced to seek shelter in a disused shed 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 to disappear, Jennifer learns that they all have something in common – a shared secret that seems to mark them all for doom.

HOLLAND

I have been in Amsterdam for a couple of weeks rehearsing and sorting out wardrobe etc: for ‘The Windmill Massacre’.  I had lots of time off and spent some time sightseeing.

I  went to see the street decorations for Halloween in Amsterdam.

On Halloween night I went into Amsterdam to watch the parade and here is a link to the film I made.

I had my 15th birthday whilst I have been away.  Me and mum went into a town called Tiel, where Spectre was showing, with  Nick Jongerius, Bart Beekman and Charlotte Beaumont. We had tapas before the film and it was a good night out.

We have been doing some night shots and it has been very atmospheric. Come back later for more news about the film.

THE WINDMILL MASSACRE

I am in Holland at the moment. I have been here for a few weeks and still have two weeks to go.  I am filming a new feature film called ‘The Windmill Massacre’.  It is based on an old Dutch folklore tale and promises to be one of the most scariest of films.  You know the sort where you say, ‘No…don’t go in the woods’. It is gruesome and will have you jumping in your seats.  A must for horror fans.
