Hasta el viento tiene miedo (Even the Wind is Afraid) is a 1968 (1967 according to the ITESM) [1] Mexican horror film, written and directed by Carlos Enrique Taboada and is considered a cult movie in México. A remake was released in 2007, around Halloween, and it stars Martha Higareda as the protagonist.


The film is about a group of students in an exclusive college for women, led by Claudia (Alicia Bonet) who decide to investigate a local tower that has figured prominently in disturbing and recurring dreams Claudia has been having. The dream also features a hanged woman's body. They are suspended from school for their antics, but Claudia learns from one of the female staff members that the person in the dream is a student who killed herself years before, and that the teacher has seen her ghost.

Andrea, the young woman who committed suicide in the tower, haunts the women's college seeking revenge for her terrible tragedy. When Andrea attended the college she learned that her mother was gravely ill and wished to be excused from school to visit her dying mother. When Bernarda, the principal, forbade her to leave, Andrea became distraught and overcome with grief. In a manic episode she decided to hang herself in the tower after the news of her mother's death.

Andrea now seeks revenge and won't rest until Bernarda pays for what she did to her. One windy night Andrea beckons Claudia to climb the stairs to the tower. Bernarda follows her and attempts to stop her. When Bernarda reaches the top of the stair where Andrea hanged herself, she is met by the ghost. Paralyzed by fear, Bernarda can't defend herself from Andrea and is hanged by the ghost.

Some time after the terrible events of the stormy night, Claudia is set to go home and the new headmistress assures her that all is well in the college; as she walks to the school's main gate, she stares to the tower with fear, but the school's gardener tells her that Andrea rests in peace now and Claudia shouldn't fear her ghost anymore.
