I saw the American version of **The Vanishing ** on the shelves at Blockbuster the other day, and it got me wondering what the difference was between the original and the American version. I remember reading several times on the boards that the American version completely changes the ending to a happy one.
I’ve seen the original, but it has been so long that I don’t completely remember what happens in it either. Here’s what I think I remember: a guy and girl stop at a gas station, the girl goes missing, and the guy somehow finds out who the bad guy is who did it, and the bad guy offers to show him where the girl is, and then the guy ends up being buried alive. Is that close to right?
So could someone please tell me if that is the correct plotline for the original The Vanishing, and how it changed in the American version? This has been bugging me and I would really appreciate knowing.
