We gave it a D-

Director Michael Mann’s second feature is one of the weirdest movies to come out of the ’80s. The Keep has something to do with WWII German soldiers occupying a mysterious Carpathian fortress only to come face-to-face with — a demon from hell? An alien from space? A waiter from Schrafft’s? Damned if I can tell. Based on an F. Paul Wilson book, The Keep wastes a fine cast (Scott Glenn, Jurgen Prochnow, Ian McKellen, Gabriel Byrne) while playing like Alien on downers. D
