THEY WERE ALL DRAWN TO THE KEEP. The soldiers who brought death. The father and daughter fighting for life. The people who have always feared it. And the one man who knows its secret... THE KEEP Tonight, they will all face the evil.
The main set of the film was built in a disused abandoned former slate quarry at Glyn Rhonwy near Llanberis in North Wales. Some interiors of "The Keep" were filmed inside the natural stonework of the Llechwedd Slate Caverns near the historic mining town of Blaenau Ffestiniog in Gwynedd, Wales. Michael Mann once described the set by saying: "It's a black monumental structure that might have been built by a medieval Albert Speer." See more »

Some television versions include additional footage after the original downbeat ending, showing Eva Cuza (Alberta Watson) turn around, entering the Keep and finding the body of Glaecen (Scott Glenn), dead after the final battle with Molasar. Eva hugs Glaeken, who is revived by the power of her love. See more »
This is surprisingly good movie from the 80's. Somehow the script was a little bit shallow. I was surprised by special effects that seemed very good for its time. Don't consider this movie as action genre. It's far from that. I consider it as fantasy/mystery/horror. I didn't read the book but this movie is really worth watching. Some of the questions in the end remained unanswered. Why is the keep cursed? What posses it? What is the creature from the keep - demon, devil or something else? What is the being acted by Scott Glenn that fought against the creature - some archangel or what? Maybe the answers are in the novel. One of the greatest moments in the movie is music that matches the atmosphere. Directing and acting were very good too.
