Man, I haven't watched The Keep in, like, over 15 years. And the worst part is? I think it was better than I remember. Well, at least more fun. Don't get me wrong, there was everything you'd expect from a supernatural thriller released in 1983, up to and including a soundtrack by Tangerine Dream. Oh, and I think the "Scott Glenn" special effect wasn't very realistic; no one is going to believe he's a real person! But still, some decent surprises in there. And man, just look at that cast.

Note, I never read the book, but I rarely compare books to movies, so YMMV.

This afternoon, hoofing it up to see Nana. Tonight, a get-together at one of RQ's co-workers, a welcome-home party for someone returning from Bagdhad! So I get the inside sc00p.

The Keep is an oldie but goodie I suppose. My favorite bit was where they made the young Ian Mckellan ( he wasn't *really* young but he was wrinkle free) look about the age he is now. And as far as Scott Glen goes they should really re-make the movie as they can do more sophisticated fx magic these days. ;)

when i saw it it was on tv a couple weeks ago, i figured out what it was and that it was about 20 years old. I was all like, HEY Ian McKellan looks like he does now; and he looks like he's 100 years old, so his real age must be about, 120. And then the added age makeup came off, and he looked like he did then. So i was pretty amazed at his makeup job.
