The Vanishing (Spoorloos)- July 25th

The Vanishing (1988)
Dutch/French- Thriller/Horror
Rated “R”
Runtime- 106 min.
dir. George Sluizer

Story/Writing: 1/2

What starts off as a somewhat interesting psychological thriller ends up getting a little drawn out and confused.

Acting: 1.5/2

Bernard-Pierre Donnadieu and Gene Bervoets are just about the only attractions for this flick. It’s a good thing that they are on-screen quite a bit.  Most everyone else is just too underdeveloped to be that good.

Photography/Set: 1/2

Not much to show off because of minimalistic sets, so there isn’t anything there.

Sound/FX: 1.5/2

A good soundtrack and some very visceral visual effects.

Misc: 1.5/2

Not a badly put together film, but there are some missed opportunities.

VERDICT: 6.5/10

I would give it a watch if you like these movies or are interested in making them.
