Directed by George Sluizer and released in its home country of the Netherlands in 1988.
An exceptionally written horror film that plays out more like a detective film than a horror with one of the eeriest scores you’ll ever hear in a film. Bernard-Pierre Donnadieu’s cold performance, as Raymond Lemorne, is perfect and mirrors the gleeful performance of Johanna ter Steege, as Saskia. The plot concerns a family man whose decides to become a serial killer.
There is a slapstick element to the way that many of his would-be victims know better than to talk to strangers but by the brutal final act we realize that this is no slapstick comedy – despite Rex Hofman’s infectious laughter. Brilliant.
