    Hi Folks,

    There is a great serial-killer thriller that I have seen, called "Amsterdamned". It's based, obviously, in Amsterdam, and is all about a killer who goes around murdering people in and around the famed canals of the area.

    The film was given a UK cinema release, and a VHS release as well, in the late 1980's/early 1990's, on Vestron Video.

    It has also been on ITV, once, in the mid-1990's in the early hours of New Year's Day. The reason I know this, is because I have this film on video, from the ITV showing. I think it has only ever been aired once on TV, and I can't locate any information about any other transmissions of the film, on any UK TV station, other than the one I mentioed.

    So, does anyone know if this film has been given a DVD release anywehere in the world, either dubbed into English, or Subtitled in English?

    The IMDB doesn't list anything, and I can't locate any other details, hence I'm turning to you folks.

    I'm also looking for Dick Maas' other great thriller "The Lift", about people who get trapped in a killer lift, in an appartment block. (Maas also directed "Amsterrdamned".)

    Any help, would be greatly appreciated. :)

    I have that for sale.

    No sign of the The Lift so far but it's been mentioned as 'possible' for a Dutch release by the end of the year.
