Critically Acclaimed #27: The Keep and Night of the Demon




Michael Mann is world famous for his hard-hitting, realistic, Oscar-nominated crime dramas, but he also directed the World War II horror movie THE KEEP, a supernatural thriller that got so mangled that Michael Mann tried to keep it from being released for many, many years. How bad is THE KEEP, really? And why is it the perfect double feature with NIGHT OF THE DEMON (a.k.a. CURSE OF THE DEMON), a film Martin Scorsese once called one of the scariest movies ever made?

You’ll find out in this week’s exciting episode, and you’ll also get reviews of the new releases LIFE OF THE PARTY, BREAKING IN, BEAST and LU OVER THE WALL. Hurray!

Welcome back to Critically Acclaimed, where highbrow and lowbrow collide! Every week, film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold review a BAD movie of YOUR choice and pair it with a GREAT movie of THEIR choice, to make an awesome and enlightening double feature.

    The Godfather Saga with all the deleted scenes, in chronological order, with introductions on nbc with the cast. THAT is a vhs set worth owning

    I loved The Keep when I saw it in the theater when it was released. All these years I thought I liked it, but I saw it again recently and my ardor was a bit deflated. Oh well. Still LOOKS really good though.
