4.0 out of 5 stars DVD please!, 10 April 2007
This review is from: The Keep [1983] (VHS Tape)
My recollections of this movie are somewhat blurred by time, but the fact that Michael Mann directed it should give you some assurance of its calibre. It is a genuinely original idea, involving German soldiers during the Second World War becoming embroiled in a strange gothic horror scenario - think DAS BOOT crossed with HELLRAISER. The whole thing seems to bear some symbolic relation to the fiendishness of the Third Reich, and is not unlike those moments of delicious horror at the end of RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK. In my memory - which remains hazy - the soldiers move from being figures of audience contempt to audience sympathy, as they are picked off by a greater form of evil. There are touches of PREDATOR in the structure of the film, too. A late night treat, which hasn't been screened on TV in a good long while, this cult classic deserves a DVD transfer. Hey, Maria Carey in GLITTER got one! Why can't THE KEEP?!?!
