We watched the original Dutch (French language, english sub-titles) version of The Vanishing as recommended by Eli Roth on his horror movie marathon guide. It was creepy, not bloody at all, more psychological. It felt a little too avant-garde for my tastes but the end was justifiably shocking.
scare factor: not much, I have better decision making skills than the characters did.
treat: french breast of chicken baked with a sweet vermouth reduction.
