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.

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 had been broadcast at least 3 ti... read more

Young lovers Rex and Saskia are on holiday. They stop at a busy service station and Saskia disappears. Rex dedicates the next three years trying to find her. Then he receives some postcards from her abductor, who promises to reveal what has happened to Saskia. The abductor, Raymond Lemorne, is a chilling character to whom Rex is drawn by his intense desire to learn the truth behind his lovers disappearance. But the truth is more sinister than he dared imagine.

"This is "SPOORLOOS", not the remake "Tha Vanishing". Although both films were made by the same director, the second is, for what I've read and heard, a bit more commercial and not as HEARTBREAKING as the first one. A young woman disappers. His boyfriend needs to know what happened to her. "
