The Keep Reviews
Una lástima porque tenía muchísimo potencial...
Echad un vistazo a mi crítica completa en Terror.Team para entender de lo que hablo: http://terror.team/la-caida-de-un-mito-the-keep/
The acting was top notch with Gabriel Byrne and Sir Ian McKellen. The story is interesting, but just ends up being too dark and foggy, and the 'creature' is nothing more than a guy in a rubber suit.
So much potential wasted. With Nazi's camping in a Keep that the local people said to stay away from, with strange happenings, and soldiers being wasted and torn apart, this should have been amazing, but it just didn't gel like it should have.
The soundtrack was marvelous however, and as I said, some performances were really good, and the premise was great.
People just love to beat up the weird flicks Ike this one by cramming the movie into their square peg and claiming the movie makes no sense or whatever. BS !
As Captain Defender of the underdog flicks I say you should give this one a chance if you liked Phantasm and hated Titanic.
If you liked Titanic then you shouldn't be watching The Keep. You should be watching Fried Green Tomatoes. The Keep is for us Boys, not sissy's
Despite the poor editing of this film thanks to the studio, many glorious parts remain, it could have been so much more if the director was allowed to show his cut, but alas no.
It remains to me a very special film even after watching it recently, I hope one day the studio will stop hiding the footage and we can have the extended cut which I am sure will be excellent.
