The Lift

Dir: Dick Maas
Star: Huub Stapel, Willeke van Ammelrooy, Josine van Dalsum

[5] Psychopathic elevators may sound a silly idea after all, it's difficult for them to stalk lingerie clad teenagers - yet this manages to be a neat and stylish movie. Lightning strikes an office block, changing the experimental software in it's lift and turning it into a killer. The scenes with the machinery in killer mode are great and have a real 'frisson' to them - if the humans, such as the lift engineer investigating the deaths, have less character it can be put down to the atrocious dubbing, quite the worst I've seen in a while.
