One in 10 horror movies on Netflix proves decent — this wasn’t one of those. The acting was the true terror, and very little of the film looks realistic. Gore-wise, there is plenty, but does it really count if the gore looks like a high school film project?

In “The Windmill,” a bus-full of tourists get stranded outside of an old windmill, which they soon find out is a gate to hell. In the classic slasher fashion, the characters are killed off one at a time while the remaining folks work to figure out what’s happening. There are a few interesting plot points and a couple of twists in the story, but the film ultimately proved unremarkable.

If you’re looking for a cheesy movie night, “The Windmill” might suffice, but keep in mind that slashers are rarely something special. Sure there are gruesome amputations, pools of blood, and a monster that looks like a melted wax figure, but you’ll have to make a conscious effort to overcome the low quality.

It’s going to take me some time to recover from the crappiness of this film, but I will admit that I probably won’t venture into any Dutch windmills any time soon.
