I got this one recently and I wasn't impressed at all to be honest. I know it's a bit of a cult film and even regarded as a classic in some quarters, but it was sadly one of those movies that I struggled to get into. The idea was good enough and certainly original, but flat characterisation, cinematography and direction let it down. The pace was also too leisurely for its own good, and that's before even getting onto the plot which didn't really go anywhere.

The disc itself was pretty half arsed with a full screen presentation and no restoration, it looked like a good VHS, and while the artwork was nice and it was certainly good to finally see this film for myself, I certainly won't be revisiting it, unless the remake bowls me over. It's a pity because I really liked Amsterdamned by Dick Maas.
