The Vanishing: Recut – I’m a big fan of Tim Krabbe’s horror novel The Golden Egg and George Sluizer’s 1988 movie adaptation Spoorloos. That shocking ending gave me nightmares for weeks. The 1993 American remake didn’t work. The story is too blunt and tragic for the Hollywood standards, and to change that is to kill the most terrifying aspect of the film. I do think the US version has a lot going for it tho. Jeff Bridges is completely terrifying and Kiefer is a more likeable lead (which would make the character’s fate even more painful to watch).
That’s why I decided to recut the film, removing the dumb changes and preserving the essence of the story and its terrifying conclusion. I’m pretty sure it’s been done before, but I decided to do my own version and share it with whoever might be interested.
Back To The Future: The Hill Valley Chronicles – The Hill Valley Chronicles takes the enormously popular Back To The Future Trilogy and adapts it to a ‘Quantum Leap’ style 30 minute teatime TV show comprising of ten episodes. This new adaptation puts a fresh spin on the trilogy by reshaping the narrative so the parallel events of November 12 1955 in the trilogy collide with each other in action packed fashion.
