Windblown -- A Psychological Thriller Short Film by Katie Vincent and Usher Morgan |

After the unexpected death of her brother, Beth Reeves seeks solace in her family’s New England cottage. What seems at first like a quiet retreat quickly proves deceptive and dangerous. Windblown challenges the classic adage, “find what you love and let it kill you”. And proves that grief... is a b**ch.

Directed and Produced by Usher Morgan and Katie Vincent
Written by Katie Vincent
Starring Katie Vincent, Jacob. A Ware, Susan Gallagher

This psychological thriller short film won the Best Short film award at Top Shorts award in 2020, as well as Best Short at the 2020 Los Angeles Film Awards. Windblown was also nominated for "best short" in 12 other film festivals, including the Greenpoint Film Festival and the The Yonkers Film Festival.

UK Film says: "Dealing with grief cinematically can be a challenging prospect, especially within the confines of a #shortfilm structure. Not only do the filmmakers rise to the occasion, they deliver arguably one of the most impressive pieces of the year. The marvellous storytelling is heightened by incredible performances, superb #filmmaking, and an absorbing atmosphere that is supercharged with tension."
