When his girlfriend, Saskia (Johanna ter Steege), disappears mysteriously at a gas station, Rex (Gene Bervoets) becomes obsessed with finding out what happened to her. Three years later, a man (Bernard-Pierre Donnadieu) approaches him and says he kidnapped her to see if he was capable of doing the most evil thing he could imagine, and promises to reveal her fate if Rex submits to experiencing the same thing Saskia did. Rather than snuffing the twisted man's life out right then and there, he agrees, drinks some spiked coffee, passes out, and wakes in a coffin, buried alive. Dying to know indeed.
6. Rex dies to know in The Vanishing (1988)
