Amsterdam was damned by: Animal Reaction Shot: From a cat, during the raft attack. Ankle Drag: Happens to the second environmentalist. Artistic License - Gun Safety: Eric's daughter Anneke is introduced trying to scare him with his gun, which he just left lying around, apparently loaded. Ate His Gun: The killer, and a harpoon gun at that. Attempted Rape: A taxi driver tries to force the prostitute he's accompanying to perform oral sex on him. Unfortunately for him, she bites. Badass: Eric. Bald of Evil: The killer. Big Damn Heroes: Eric and Vermeer arriving just as Laura is about to be dragged under by the killer. Blood Is Squicker in Water Blood-Splattered Innocents: The prostitute's body is hung from a bridge, and ends up entering a tour boat filled with (among others) young children and nuns. Bowties Are Cool: Willy. Bus Full of Innocents: Appear throughout the boat chase. Butt Monkey: Vermeer. California Doubling The movie was actually filmed in Utrecht, another Dutch city with an abundance of canals. Carry a Big Stick: When she thinks he's the killer, Laura beats Martin with a boat oar. Chase Scene: Two; the first one has the police chasing a suspect on a motorcycle, and the second one has Eric chase the actual killer on boats they commandeer. The Coroner: Sam. Covers Always Lie: One makes it look kind of like an alien invasion film. Crazy Homeless People: The bag lady. A Date with Rosie Palms: "He's in the john, I expect that he's masturbating." Daylight Horror: The raft victim and John's deaths. Disposable Sex Worker: The first victim. Disturbed Doves: Or ducks, in this case. Driven to Suicide: The killer. The Drunken Sailor: One of the victims. Epic Fail: The main suspect tries to jump an opening bridge on his motorcycle, and fails rather badly. Evil Overlooker Eye Scream: "Her eyes were already fish food." There's also something wrong with one of the sailor victim's eye. Facial Horror: When the killer's face is finally revealed, it's pretty fucked up. Fan Disservice: The prostitute's naked, mutilated body. Grievous Bottley Harm: The main suspect lost his job when he attacked someone with a broken bottle in a drunken rage. Groin Attack: The taxi driver getting bit, and the raft victim getting knifed. Harpoon Gun: Vermeer gets shot in the arm with one, while Eric sustains a shot to the shoulder a bit later. The killer also commits suicide with one. Man Bites Man: The first victim deals with the taxi driver trying to force her to perform fellatio on him via biting. Peek-A-Boo Corpse: After his buddy disappears from their boat, the second environmentalist pulls in the anchor, and discovers his friend's head impaled on it. Later on, John is scared when a dead sailor pops out of a closet while he is exploring a sunken ship. Perma Stubble: Eric. Pie in the Face: Eric stops a bakery robbery by handcuffing the robber, and slamming his face into a cake. It is evidently delicious. Pipe Pain: While doing her own little investigation with Willy, Anneke grabs one. Portmantitle: Amsterdam + damned. Ramp Jump: With boats! Red Herring: The most prominent one being Martin.
