It isn't too often, one sees a movie where the audience sees German soldiers of WWII fighting for their lives and a modem of sympathy is given them. In this story, a immensely powerful 500 year old evil being, which has been imprisoned within a mountain fortress is inadvertently released to threaten the world. A veteran German Officer, Captain Klaus Woermann (Jurgen Prochnow, superb acting) who has experienced his share of an insane War, is stationed in a strategic mountain pass, with a mountain Fortress called " The Keep". No sooner do his soldiers occupy the Keep, when they come under attack of the power which they let loose. Strange words appear to warn all that if they remain they are in peril of their lives. A highly educated professor, Dr. Theodore Cuza, (Ian McKellen) a scholar of ancient languages is call on to help, as is a mysterious stranger, (Scott Glenn) Glaeken Trismegestus who will battle the Evil on behalf of Humanity. The powerful black presence which grows more powerful by the day is not the only evil in the village. An equally menacing being is an S.S. Deathhead soldier, Major Kaempffer, who begins killing villagers indiscriminately. By the way the SS bad guy is played by none other than Gabriel Byrne, who gives a chilling performance as a fervent homicidal Nazi. William Sheppard, plays Alexandru who tries to explain the mysterious power of the keep. Together they create a mystical Classic for anyone who likes to be frightened. ****
