What is it about? This is a drastic re-edit of the THE VANISHING, George Sluizer's US remake of his international success SPOORLOS (1988), which was a major disappointment on so many levels. This is faster, smarter, darker and does not have the happy Hollywood ending, but the original one.

tagline: Curiosity killed the cat. Do you really want to know?
original film name: The Vanishing (1993)
new film name : The Vanishing - Scary As Hell Edition
film studio name :20th Century Fox
edit crew name : 3Raz0r
Date Original Film Was Released : 1993
Date Edit Was Released : 12 2009
Original Runtime : 109 minutes
New Runtime : 83 minutes
Amount of time Cut/Added : about 26 minutes cut / nothing added

Cuts removed/added/extended :

- small cut: Diane saying she wants to get out of here (it's Jeff and Diane's first appearance on screen and a not too well acted argument)
- small cut: the Colleague talking to Barney about Jeff hanging up a new poster and Barney saying that he admires his persistence (for me too obvious and unnecessary)
- cut: everything Rita Baker did after she left Jerry (these are many smaller and bigger cuts)

About this fanedit:

I always loved Jeff Bridges performance in this movie. The original is of course better, but the "villain" in the remake is for me truly superior. He acts like a douche, which makes him even more cruel and scary. It's only an experiment. Kiefer was a bit wooden in this one (but I think he was wooden in most his movie appearances). Sandra Bullock was a nice little addition, yet did not leave a big impression. Nancy Travis acts between ok and awful, but you can check that out a lot better, when you watch the deleted scenario on the DVD.
Anyway, recreating the original ending for this movie was difficult, because there were not enough scenes for that, but I think it works really well and has exactly the desired shocking effect it is supposed to have. At first I had the entire end section silent (without music) and loved it that way. But this movie has music all the time, so I had to add it there as well.
So this will give the English audience a much "truer" version of THE VANSIHING.

Your intention for this fanedit:
Re-create the original shocking ending, but fitting to the remake.

Your way to achieve your intention:
The usual: slicing, cutting, removing, moving, splitting, cursing, taking millions of breaks, crying, swearing, stabbing, re-creating, recreating recreations, staying calm, trying to stay calm, focusing, concentrating, smoking, drinking, sleeping, re-arranging, searching for sound files, giving up, getting on it again, finishing.

so the "original ending" is recreated with the remake? this could be good... and scary ;)
Hey is 3Raz0r really a girl.. or at the very least, a girly vampire?

Anyway, this looks like another great edit.
This probably means that 3Raz0r is automatically on the top editors list as well since this is SAH #7.

You are right. I am on it...
update: 3Raz0r added and she enters at a whopping no.5, pretty close to Jorge.
I saw this film in the theater when it originally opened and do not remember this having a happy ending!?!
Happy-ish. Certainly a more Hollywood ending than the original version.

And I agree with 3Raz0r...Jeff really owns this movie. Not that he has much competition from the other leads, but he really finds some great moments with this role.
