osama bin laden
Description: Down is a 2001 horror film written and directed by Dick Maas about a killer elevator, starring James Marshall and Naomi Watts. The film is also known as The Shaft, which is the name used for the United States DVD release. The film is a remake of the 1983 Dutch film De Lift (The Elevator), which was also directed by Maas.
Watts plays the role of pushy journalist Jennifer Evans, and Marshall is Mark, an elevator repairman and former Marine. The movie was mainly filmed in the Netherlands, although the crew briefly visited New York City and the District of Columbia as well for exterior shots.
The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2001, but was not released on video in the United States until two years later.
Produced before the September 11, 2001, attacks, the film makes several references to the possibility of terrorists attacking New York City and even specifically about Osama bin Laden, the use of airplanes by terrorists, and the Twin Towers.
