Synopsis

Amsterdamned Check on IMDB

A predator has surfaced from the canals of Amsterdam leaving a trail of gruesomely dismembered bodies in Dick Maas’ high-octane, heart-stopping cult slasher-thriller.

As the victims pile up in a series of startling, violent, Jaws-style set pieces, a detective is assigned to hunt down the hidden killer before news of the carnage causes mass hysteria and hurts the tourist trade.

The masterful, clever & darkly witty direction of Dick Maas (Award winner of the prestigious, horror, Avoriaz Fantastic Festival) is mainstream enough to appeal to action thriller fans but also nasty enough to satisfy slasher aficionados ..

This edition includes an in-depth making-of by the Director himself, witnessing the film’s legendary boat chase and other amazing stunts (no CGI here!) which infuses the film with a sense of tangible danger – and indeed sent the film’s lead to hospital for 3 weeks after crashing his boat !

This rarely seen gem has attained a deserving cult status; originally cut by the BBFC, it is now presented as instructed by Dick Maas: uncut and in his original film format.
