De Lift (The Lift) (Goin' Up)
Black humor dominates in this macabre story about a murderously animated elevator and its repairman Felix (Huub Stapel) and Felix's voluntary new assistant Mieke (Willeke van Ammelrooy), a reporter for a tabloid paper. When the elevator decapitates a security guard and tries to suffocate some party-goers, it becomes obvious that it needs more than a 60,000-mile check-up. After Felix narrows down the possibilities to some experiments his company is doing with microchips, he is coincidentally suspended from his job -- indicating that the elevator is not acting alone. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Played more for a black comedy than for a corporate greed or menace film."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Maas gives us a whole bunch of family strife and then doesn't resolve it. The elevator is far more important to him so when that business is done, so is the movie."
‑ Adam Lippe,
