The Keep is a 1983 horror film directed by Michael Mann and starring Scott Glenn, Gabriel Byrne, J? 1/4rgen Prochnow and Ian McKellen. The story is based on the F. Paul Wilson novel of the same name, published in 1981.Despite being a critical failure, it retained a cult following, mostly due to the film's music score by Tangerine Dream and the film's mixture of Gothic horror and WWII elements.The film focuses on a deserted citadel (the "Keep" of the title) in WWII Romania within which lies entrapped a dangerous and malevolent entity named (Radu) Molasar. When the German Wehrmacht occupies the castle to control the Dinu Mountain Pass, Molasar is unwittingly unleashed from deep within the innermost recesses of the citadel by a pair of treasure-seeking soldiers and he consumes their life energy. A detachment of Einsatzkommandos then arrives to deal with what is thought to be partisan activity. The Einsatzkommandos' actions only fuel the demon's hunger for bloodshed and soon more troops begin to die in mysterious, gruesome ways.
