When released in the UK, this title was cut by 6 seconds by the BBFC. A close-up shot of a knife between a woman's parted legs was removed. The cuts were waived for the 2009 Nouveaux release. See more »
A psychotic murderer brings terror to the canals of Amsterdam. Police chief Eric Visser is assigned to solve the case.
This must be one of the best dutch action/thriller movies made until now, at least in my opinion. Huub Stapel is perfectly cast as the protagonist with Monique Van De Ven as his love interest. The movie locations mostly involve canals/water, which create a nice, thrilling horror-atmosphere. Director Dick Maas also takes care of the great soundtrack. To me, he had already proved he's perfectly capable of this by doing a great job producing the score of "De Lift" (1983) also starring Huub Stapel. The movie simply keeps the spectator in suspense throughout the whole installment. This movie mixes thriller and horror elements perfectly! To me, it's a great one!
