What an ending. This one really hits you right in the gut. One of the more unsettling endings I've ever seen.

From imdb

Rex and Saskia are on holiday, a young couple in love. They stop at a busy service station and Saskia disappears. Rex dedicates the next three years trying to find her. Then he receives some postcards from her abductor, who promises to reveal what has happened to Saskia. The abductor, Raymond Lemorne, is a chilling character to whom Rex is drawn by his intense desire to learn the truth behind his lovers disappearance. The truth is more sinister than he dared imagine.

Rex is one of the cinema's true dumbasses. In the first five minutes you hate him because he leaves his girl alone in a dark tunnel. He gets more sympathetic, but he starts as a real jerk.



<SPOILER>



I guess that makes the ending more bearable, as he's buried alive just like his girl friend. Only a total dumbass would take the sleeping pill anyway. You know the guy's a killer, you know that. Why not just kill the bastard and let the cops find her?

AAAAAAAAAAARGH
