The Vanishing

"It's how creepy is done!"

Ok, every woman's nightmare in 106 minutes. George Sluizer's trilingual creep-fest was enjoyed by yours truly on fast-forward... for the most part. I don't do horror. So when I watch it, I watch it sound down or fast-forward. There's just some things I don't need, like remembering that truly creepy beard on Bernard-Pierre Donnadieu. *shudder* Anyways, it was subtle, but not slow. Agonizing, but not overwhelming. Full-bodied with a little cherry at the end... whatever.

Favorite Moments: The French countryside.
