The Keep

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… In Michael Mann’s mesmerizing nightmare, a detachment of Nazis must enlist the aide of a Jewish historian in a desperate battle against a terrifying force, as a mysterious stranger also arrives at the ancient citadel. Mann crafts a visually stunning horror fantasy drawing from Jewish folklore, while the impressive ensemble cast includes Scott Glenn, Ian McKellen, Jürgen Prochnow, and Gabriel Byrne. Tangerine Dream provides a memorable score. Rarely screened and not to be missed!

The Relic

When decapitated bodies start popping up at Chicago’s Natural History Museum, an evolutionary biologist (Penelope Ann Miller) teams with a tough cop (Tom Sizemore) to track a man-eating killer. A pulse-pounding, action-packed monster flick, The Relic combines a witty script, gruesome gore, stylish cinematography from director Peter Hyams, and excellent creature effects from Stan Winston to create a bloody good time in the dark.

“A surprisingly entertaining “monster-on-the-loose” picture set mostly in halls and private passageways of Chicago’s Field Museum of Natural History.” – Gene Siskel, Chicago Tribune

“All of this is actually a lot of fun, if you like special effects and gore. Peter Hyams is a skillful action director, working here with the veteran creature effects specialist Stan Winston” – Roger Ebert
