Very rare cult horror film!

When a unit of Nazis are sent to guard an old, mysterious fortress in a Romanian pass, one of them mistakenly releases an unknown force trapped within the walls. A mysterious stranger senses this from his home in Greece and travels to the keep to vanquish the force. As soldiers are killed, a Jewish man and his daughter (who are both knowledgeable of the keep) are brought in to find out what is happening.

The Keep is an ambitious visual feast from director Michael Mann, who would soon produce the quintessential pastel-colored '80s TV series Miami Vice. The film's fever-dream-logic casts a hypnotic spell -- ably assisted by Tangerine Dream's pulsating, ethereal music (including electronic variations on a theme by Thomas Tallis) -- with a story that seems to play by the Keep's own eerie supernatural rules. Though initially a commercial failure, this film has garnered a large cult following over the years and is often sought after.
