Capital Celluloid 2016 - Day 130: Mon May 9

The Keep (Mann, 1983): Prince Charles Cinema, 9pm



This 35mm presentation is part of the Michael Mann season at the Prince Charles Cinema. You can find all the details here.

Forget what you know about Michael Mann's filmmaking. This is a complete one-off and hardly ever seen. Don't miss the chance to catch this genuine cult film.

Cigarette Burns film club introduction:
Deep within the borders of Romania lie mountains that were once home to folklore of the most terrifying nature, from dragons to werewolves to vampires, creatures of our nightmares have always called these mountains' peaks and passes home. In Mann's "lost" second feature, a Nazi unit have unwittingly awaken an ancient evil, Molasar. Nestled in his Keep for years, he has risen and is hungry. Ian McKellen, playing a Jewish theologian, is freed from a concentration camp to help send Molasar back from whence he came. 

Here (and above) is the trailer.
