A cult classic
31 August 1999 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most underrated Dutch movies ever. I just loved it. Very violent at times, but very effective. Very intense atmosphere throughout the whole movie. Maas does a fantastic job. A real creepy villain he portrays. One of my all time favorite movies. Has become kind of a cult classic in Holland.

9.5 / 10
