Ever wonder what goes on in the mind of a kidnapper when he is planning and committing the act? Here's your chance. The kidnapper doesn't run around with a large knife or axe, he does not grin maniacally, he doesn't have a scary tone of voice, he looks entirely like an ordinary man. You wouldn't pick up out of a crowd as a dangerous man, yet he becomes more and more menacing, precisely because of ... read more

For years, I have heard that this movie was one the best Dutch movies ever made so I was really dying to see it. So, I have been waiting all those years and even though I have been living in the Netherlands for almost 10 years, for some weird reasons, it was never on TV whereas the disappointing American remake has been broadcasted at least 3 times already... Anyway, I wasn't disappointed. Indeed,... read more

My Favorite 199 Films From The 80's, y'all. (199 movies items)

"During a car ride while on holiday, a Dutch husband suddenly finds himself unexpectedly and "casually" separated from his wife and ends up never seeing her again. Spending the next couple of years trying to balance his life with moving on and at the same time, obsessing over her disappearance, a clue to his investigation finally comes to light. The Vanishing is a great movie from the Netherlands but set in France that I love talking about with anyone else who has watched this. And I could "

Total Film's 80 Greatest 1980s' Movie Moments (80 movies items)

"The Moment: Gene Bervoets agrees to be knocked out by self-confessed psycho Bernard-Pierre Donnadieu so he can discover exactly what happened to his missing girlfriend. Big mistake. Only In The '80s: ...did the decade's most effective chiller come out of Holland. If It Was Made Today: No need to wait. They remade it in the 1990s, with the same director, and ruined things with a happy ending. Avoid."
