HULUPALOOZA!! (Post 10 of 12)

The Vanishing
The plot of George Sluzier's film The Vanishing (Spoorlos) doesn't go in the way you would think it might after you watch the first part of it..  

The Vanishing is an abduction movie light on action, but heavy on suspense. A woman is abducted at a rest stop and her boyfriend obsessively searches for her. Throughout the movie we see the abductor living his life, but we don't know what happened to his woman. We also see the boyfriend living his anguished life and desperately trying to piece together clues of her whereabouts. The way the plot turns when the boyfriend and the abductor finally meet up is original and surprising to say the least.

Sluzier remade his film in the U.S. in 1993 to very mixed reviews.
