Brief Synopsis:
This is a drastic re-edit of the THE VANISHING, George Sluizer’s US remake of his international success SPOORLOS (1988), which was a major disappointment on so many levels. This is faster, smarter, darker and does not have the happy Hollywood ending, but the original one.
Intention:
Re-create the original shocking ending, but fitting to the remake.
Release Information
NTSC DVD-5
Special Features
- deleted scenes scenario (Rita’s Regrets) (25 minutes) (can be found in the info part of the DVD)
- very nice cover art on ROM part.
- ipod-ready mp4
Editing Details:
I always loved Jeff Bridges performance in this movie. The original is of course better, but the “villain” in the remake is for me truly superior. He acts like a douche, which makes him even more cruel and scary. It’s only an experiment. Kiefer was a bit wooden in this one (but I think he was wooden in most his movie appearances). Sandra Bullock was a nice little addition, yet did not leave a big impression. Nancy Travis acts between ok and awful, but you can check that out a lot better, when you watch the deleted scenario on the DVD.

Anyway, recreating the original ending for this movie was difficult, because there were not enough scenes for that, but I think it works really well and has exactly the desired shocking effect it is supposed to have. At first I had the entire end section silent (without music) and loved it that way. But this movie has music all the time, so I had to add it there as well.

So this will give the English audience a much “truer” version of THE VANSIHING.
Cuts and Additions:
- small cut: Diane saying she wants to get out of here (it’s Jeff and Diane’s first appearance on screen and a not too well acted argument)
- small cut: the Colleague talking to Barney about Jeff hanging up a new poster and Barney saying that he admires his persistence (for me too obvious and unnecessary)
- cut: everything Rita Baker did after she left Jerry (these are many smaller and bigger cuts)
