    From FB:

    "SURPRISE TITLE ANNOUNCEMENT: After 10+ years of trying, we're very pleased to announce that we've finally closed the deal to bring Dick Maas's AMSTERDAMNED and THE LIFT to the U.S. for the first time since VHS & LaserDisc! Blu-ray and DVD will be released at some point next year. Nothing else to report at this time."
    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    I bought the Shameless release of AMSTERDAMNED last year after watching it on YouTube and liking it. It has an unconventional serial killer and an unbelievable speedboat chase through the Amsterdam canals (the DVD has a behind the scenes special feature showing how they shot the scene).
    VHS will never die!

    A New Kind Of Horror Lurks In The Shadows Of The Lift...

    There is something very wrong with the elevator in a stylish office high-rise. The passengers never end up on the floor of their choice. They end up dead! When Felix, an inquisitive repairman, investigates the faulty deathtrap, he discovers that something other than malfunctioning machinery is to blame. Some dark, distorted power has gained control of the elevator for its own evil design. After his horrifying discovery is given the shaft by the authorities, he joins a nosy female journalist to battle the unholy force inside THE LIFT!

    Huub Stapel (AMSTERDAMNED) and Willeke van Ammelrooy (ANTONIA'S LINE) star in this chilling cult classic from Writer/Director Dick Maas (SAINT), who also composed the score and later helmed the 2001 English-language remake, DOWN (aka THE SHAFT).
