    Amsterdamned is a wonderful late eighties artistic slasher film that suffers from a rather unfortunate title. Although it was made in the Netherlands, it has all the trappings and style of a giallo piece. Honestly if it weren't for the location and language I could have easily taken it for giallo.
    Speaking of the location, excellent use is made of the canals, especially during one hectic chase scene- which although long, is never boring, and kept me absolutely riveted.
    The canals and the city of Amsterdam also create a very palpable atmosphere which really brings the entire film up a notch. In fact, it reminds me a lot of the film Don't Look Now.
    In addition are the meticulously decorated sets common to euro-horror and giallo.
    Amsterdamned is a fun, tight, and thrilling horror film that can be enjoyed by fans of both giallo and american slashers alike.
