Severin Films has announced the upcoming release of director Jimmy T. Murakami’s chilling film When the Wind Blows (1986) on Blu-ray.
In this hand-drawn animated tale, elderly married couple Hilda (Peggy Ashcroft) and Jim Bloggs (John Mills) have their quiet, simple lives in the English countryside interrupted when they learn of an impending nuclear attack. Not completely understanding the gravity of their situation, Hilda and Jim react archaically and insufficiently after the attack – and the film takes a dark turn as the radiation begins taking its toll on the unsuspecting couple.
