The original Nederlansche name of DEATH IN THE SHADOWS (1985) is "De Prooi."
When middle-aged Trudy is struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver, Valerie, her nearly 18-year-old daughter learns that she isn't a blood relative. The police want to know why the dead woman was receiving money each month. Valerie interviews people and visits a few odd places, hoping for answers and to try and locate her real parents.
In one very dark scene, bicycle-riding Valerie is nearly flattened by a persistent motorist obviously intent on killing her. Inspector Mellema, the detective investigating Trudy's death, believes the two street incidents are related, and that whoever twice ran over the mother wants Valerie dead, as well.
A generally above-average story plumbs the prurient a few times and we see more of the teen and a peep show gal than necessary. Other than that, it's a well-dubbed and plotted thriller with a unique music score that just may hold your interest.
