Low budget, a little long, but fairly enjoyable., 14 September 2003
Author: Katatonia from Missouri

The Devil's Keep certainly won't win any awards for anything, but it is somewhat enjoyable. Perhaps I am prejudice since I like stories concerning WW2 and Nazi-era Germany.

This was apparently only the 2nd film directed by Don Gronquist, who had done the low-budget "Unhinged" in 1982. He does a decent job, but nothing that really sets his work apart from the average.

The script of The Devil's Keep should have been developed further, the screen time of the movie is a little long. The plot of the movie is vaguely similar to the classic movie "Boys From Brazil", albeit on a much lower budget. The Devil's Keep concerns lost Nazi gold and modern day conspiracy, which has been done before. The problem with The Devil's Keep is that it goes a little over the edge on the entire conspiracy issue...sometimes it's simply difficult for the viewer to suspend their disbelief.

One last problem with the movie is the "Old Man Makeup" on a few actors throughout the film. It looks quite fake on the actors and I really don't understand why they just didn't use actors who were seniors. Maybe they wouldn't look exactly like the younger actors in the 1945 flashbacks, but it would have been much more convincing than the bad makeup.
