Dutch filmmaker George Sluizer's original THE VANISHING is a supremely disturbing psychological thriller built from a nightmare premise. During a routine rest stop in an idyllic road trip, two young lovers are separated. Bafflement turns to panic for Rex as he realises his partner has truly vanished. It's a masterpiece of suspense; a brilliantly chilling study of both the nature of obsession and the nightmarish potential for perversity and evil in the everyday.
