The adventure follows tough American drug agent Paul Sherman (Sven-Bartil Taube, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) as he ruthlessly pursues a narcotics cartel in the Netherlands. His investigation takes him to an odd religious order, housed in a castle in the middle of the ocean, on an island that may or not be diabolical. One thing leads to another and Sherman ultimately finds himself engaged in an infamous deadly boat chase.
The DVD: a newly remastered 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer;-- audio; commentary by film historians Lee Pfeiffer, Todd Garbarini, and Paul Scrabo; and an extended bar sequence with topless waitress's
Flying into Amsterdam, American agent Paul Sherman (Sven-Bertil Taub) realizes that he is playing a very deep game, when his contact is murdered at the airport, and later is forced to deal violently with a man he finds searching his hotel room. Although working with Inspector Van Gelder (Patrick Allen) of the local police, Sherman is also operating secretly with Maggie (Barbara Parkins), another American agent.
Sherman's investigation leads to a warehouse near the docks which contains Dutch girl dolls and Bibles, a castle where a creepy man named Meegeren (Vladek Sheybal) is in charge, and Van Gelder's drug damaged daughter Trudi (Penny Casdagli), who keeps popping up, always carrying a similar doll.Read more ›
For an action movie the whole thing is a bit slow, but as a little retro-entertainment for the Saturday night it is a pretty good choice. Enjoy!
