Classic dutch movie about a lift a.k.a. elevator which starts to develop a life on its own, induced by the bio-chips used for the heart of the lift: the computer which regulates everything.

The part of discovering the situation by Huub Stapel, takes the better part of the movie. If he would have conversated with his wife, she wouldn't have left him.

Special effects like the head being cur off bythe lift are poor, even for 80's standards. Still an enjoyable classic.
