In Redwood County, the dancer Gina is attacked and her boyfriend is killed by a maniac in a motel. Gina is attended by Sergeant Burns and Lieutenant Krebs insists in giving a lift to her when she leaves the hospital. However, he kidnaps Gina and arrests her in a cell in the basement of his isolated house. The deranged policeman has a serious trauma from his childhood with dancers of night-clubs and establishes rules and punctuations for Gina while she is imprisoned. Meanwhile, Lieutenant Krebs is stalked by a local, Ruthie, who has a crush on him and wants to promote his amateurish puppet show with the character Deputy Rock, his alter-ego. Sgt. Burns is trying to find a clue where the missing Gina may be. Written by

When Sgt. Burns is showing a police mugshot of Joe Cody to Lt. Krebs, the words "Sacremento City Police" appear across the photograph instead of the correct spelling of "Sacramento City Police" See more »
Long ago there was a time there was a movie industry called Hollywood that made bunch of movies to entertain audience who gave money to see those features, which was later used to make more movies. Unfortunately, the same movie industry got sick of making funny movies and felt the need to tell us something smart and educational that we supposedly don't know already. Well, here comes the big surprise 90% of the so-called 'smart' movies are pure CRAP! Anyway, The Keeper is about a sheriff Krebs or whatever his name is who kidnaps a striper Gina (Asia Argento) after some rape attempt, and tries to teach her the righteous path! Acting sucks, movie is too slow and emotionless. Dialogs are pointless and so childish you'll laugh at them only not to cry. Don't waste your gray cells to foresee the ending. Everything will go as it should along the well-pawned path of movie clichés. No surprises here. My advice is don't waste your money on this film. It ain't even worth of its stars Hopper and Argento. Hopper had his ups and downs on a career chart, Argento too, but this insults their acting capabilities as much as viewer's intelligence. This movie ain't a thriller it's a killer. You'll die of boredom before the end credits start to roll. Should be banned at any cost no matter what. If someone you know asks you to see this film, he's either suicidal or a loony. Don't insult your intelligence by watching this 'suspenseful' piece of dirt My rating? Goddamn awful - 1/10
