You need multi-region PAL/NTSC DVD player to view it in USA/Canada: LANGUAGES: Dutch ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), English ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), English ( Subtitles ), WIDESCREEN (1.78:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Interactive Menu, Making Of, Photo Gallery, Remastered, Scene Access, Trailer(s), Uncut, SYNOPSIS: When the brutally mutilated body of a hooker is discovered suspended from a bridge in the heart of Amsterdam's popular tourist district the city's police fear the worst. Within days further murders confirm their suspicions - a serial killer is on the loose and is using the vast network of canals to traverse the city before dragging unsuspecting victims to their watery graves and escaping detection by hiding in the darkness beneath the surface. Fearing an outbreak of mass hysteria and a serious blow to the tourist trade should the news break to the public, the mayor demands swift action from the authorities. The police respond by assigning their best man, Detective Visser (Hube Stapel), to the case. Figuring the killer must be someone with scuba diving experience, Visser begins his investigation at the city's principal sub-aqua club where he meets and befriends an attractive woman diver, Laura (Monique van de Ven), and her therapist, who was also once a diving enthusiast. Meanwhile, as the body count begins to rise, Visser's adolescent daughter and her school friend have unwisely decided to try and track down the killer themselves. ...Amsterdamned (1988)

By F. J. Harvey on January 5, 2005
Format: VHS Tape
Amsterdam is in thrall to a serial killer with a somehat unusual modus operandi; he emerges , clad in a scuba suit , from the canals of the city and slays whoever has the misfortune to be passing .

The case is the province of an Inspector -played by Huub Stupel -a laid back character who comes under pressure from his superiors for an early resolution of the case .They appear less concerned with the need to save lives than with the deleterious effect the killings are having on Amsterdam's vital tourist trade

The bulk of the movie follows standard police procedural lines and is workmanlike if somewhat plodding in execution .The solution relies a little too much on coincidence for my taste --the cop has a girlfriend who visits a psychiatrist,who just happens to know the killer -and at nearly two hours the movie is overlong .

The climactic chase is good however and the unusual ( in cinema terms ) location helps .

It is an okay time passer and recommended if you want a change from the usual US settings for this type of movie .

I will not make any comments on the acting as the performers are dubbed and dubbing removes at least half the impact of any performance even when done reasonably well -as it is in this instance

Plenty of action in this police thriller about a serial killer in Amsterdam's canals. All the more realistic for having Dutch actors (speaking English)although the lack of big names explains why the film did not have an international release.

Nice Dutch horror whodunit which some reviewers claim has equal parts "JAWS", "FRIDAY THE 13Th", and "JAMES BOND". Fun thriller to watch on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon.

Great 80's slasher movie. I hope this will be released uncut on blu ray someday! If you like movies like The Prowler, New York Ripper, Terror Train etc, you will definitely enjoy this one.
