De Lift (1983) A lift begins displaying some erratic behavior, like trapping some party goers and nearly suffocating them, and decapitating a security guard. Felix, the technician from the lift company, can't find anything wrong with the circuitry. When he and a nosy reporter begin asking questions of the lift company's electronics partner (Rising Sun Electronics) his boss puts him on a leave of absence. A subsequent visit to a professor leads them to believe that some evil experiments are being conducted with MICROCHIPS.

Movie Trivia:
  • The elevator firm where Felix works was originally called "Delta Liften", but because this name was already registered they changed the name to "Deta Liften" just before shooting began.
  • The movie was shot in 30 days and had a very small budget.
  • Dick Maas was fired halfway of the production because of continuing arguments with producer Matthijs van Heijningen about casting. However, he kept on working during that day and was rehired the day after, because Van Heijningen couldn't do it without him.
  • Dick Maas needed the help of an elevator manufacturer to make the film, and Schindler Liften BV liked the idea and gave their full cooperation.
  • The scene where the security guard is decapitated by the elevator was shot several times, that's why the head that falls down the shaft is smudged and disfigured.
