This has everything. From the first scene I knew this was going to develop into something special and it didn't disappoint. The sound and in some cases picture quality are fairly poor on my DVD, which is a great shame – I couldn't tell what The Face was actually saying, and as I don't speak Dutch the subtitles on my disc didn't help. I'm not sure why such an easy and obviously pantomime villain should be so effective; The Face is such a lazy excuse for a diabolic mastermind really but he's genuinely creepy. Shame we never get to find out what's under the mask or his raison d'etre.

This story had me on the edge of my seat. Thoroughly enjoyable, tragic, tense – the perfect way to spend a nostalgic 50 minutes. This has to be one of the best. 10/10, despite the poor quality – and a true rival to the Avengers magic.
