Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Mr. Sluizer, whose direction has the spooky precision of nonfiction crime writing and whose matter-of-factness makes the characters seem quite real, builds a disturbing horror story from seemingly modest beginnings.
Fresh: The appalling, horrific climax of The Vanishing will haunt your mind long after this film is over.
Fresh: A brilliantly crafted intellectual thriller with a spring like a trap. It carries you down with it.
Fresh: Director George Sluizer unfolds his story with non-hysterical -- but nonetheless unnerving -- precision. Vanishing is refreshingly free of manipulative scenes involving running bath water, jagged-edge cutlery and bunnies in the saucepan.
This movie is boring.
