Carlos Enrique Taboada is one of the few revered horror directors of the 'golden age' that I think is vastly overrated. Like his other work, Even the Wind is Afraid is a horror film for wimps: with light scares that lack suspense and tension, and a stuffy nature to its dramatic elements when it tries for a slow-crawl with alot of plot and character interaction. However, its emotion/story dimension is minimal, too.
What do you get when you throw a group of horny and sexually repressed teenage girls in a creepy old boarding school for a week? More sexy supernatural antics than you can shake a stick at! Full Review: http://cinephiledreams.blogspot.com/2013/12/hasta-el-viento-tiene-miedo-1968.html
The citizen kane of mexican horror. eye candy girls inside a strict and repressive institution. reminded me a little of "picnic at hanging rock". Entertaining ghost tale with well crafted creepy atmosphere by a man who is regarded as the "Mexican Hitchcock" Carlos Enrique Taboada.
Efectivo filme de suspenso y terror. Sobre adolescentes en un internado, una historia escalofriante y una ánima que vuelve de la ultratumba para cobrar venganza. Taboada marca el ambiente espectral mediante los sueños y el pasado que resuena a manera de leyenda. Una torre clausurada, un suicidio, son referenciales del género. Una escena fascinante, el baile de un alumna. Una doble catársis: de lo erótico a lo macabro
It brings back so many childhood memories. They used to air this on national television on Día de Muertos along with other Enrique Taboada films. And they remind me of my grandma, so that's an extra I guess.
