Amsterdamned Limited Edition Blu-ray / DVD: Blue Underground will release Amsterdamned on a limited edition Blu-ray / DVD on August 29th.

"Down in the murky depths of Amsterdam’s famous canals lurks a murderous predator. Surfacing at night, he kills at random and disappears without a trace. As the bodies begin to pile up and mass hysteria envelopes the city, Detective Eric Visser is assigned to head the investigation. With only the escalating number of victims to go on, Visser pursues his quarry with a vengeance, unaware that his beautiful new girlfriend may be the mysterious killer’s next victim.

Huub Stapel (The Lift) and Monique van de Ven (Turkish Delight) star in this pulse-pounding thriller written and directed by Dick Maas (Silent Witness), highlighted by an explosive speedboat chase through the city’s narrow canals.
