A Vote to Add "(Movie)" to the Entry's Title[edit]

This is about the atrocit--er, the movie, and not the original classic book by F. Paul Wilson, and thus, I vote that "(Movie)" is added to the title of this Wikipedia entry, to avoid confusion. [unsigned by Theotherness]

support. It's also not about the soundtrack (which is mostly not from the movie anway). The naming is film though: see Wikipedia:Naming conventions (films). See Help:Moving a page on how to move/rename a page. --Gadget850 ( Ed) 01:46, 11 May 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Support. I was actually looking for an article on the novel (which is quite good), and was disappointed to find that the inferior film somehow has rights to the non-disambiguated title. Canonblack 03:14, 13 July 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I added the move tag and will make the move in a few days. --Gadget850 ( Ed) 11:50, 13 July 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

What's a "snarky CD commentary"? OAP boba 11:22, 21 July 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It is a rather odd way to say that Wilson was pissed at the movie. Wilson's reactions should probably be moved to a section. You know how a lot of DVDs have an optional commentary track, with dialog by the director and/or actors? Wilson did a commentary for the movie- it's pretty caustic (that's the term I would have used instead of snarky). --Gadget850 ( Ed) 13:15, 21 July 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

1. There is no, and probably never will be, released DVD of this film. It was released on laserdisc twice - once in pan & scan, the second time in the correct 2:35:1 OAR - both versions are the same, as that was the only version that was ever edited together for release. 3. There is no Wilson "commentary" - doesn't exist. He's been in print being very critical of the movie. HammerFilmFan (talk) 11:35, 7 March 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Dubbed Ian McKellen[edit]

Was McKellen actually dubbed? I always thought it sounded like him with an accent. According to his notes, he was to use a "Chicago" accent. --Gadget850 ( Ed) 14:40, 14 December 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Roderick Molasar[edit]

Where did "Roderick" come from? The credits show only Molasar— I watched through all of them to see how TD was credited. --Gadget850 ( Ed) 13:29, 19 September 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

this is a british movie - according to IMDb[edit] --Ezzex (talk) 09:43, 14 February 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Isn't mentioning the what happens at the film's end a bit of a spoiler? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:39, 28 April 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Keep 2[edit]

Wasn't there a part 2 of the keep? KEEP 2?

I could have sworn there was. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:34, 31 May 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No. There is a 2005 film called The Keep, but it is a completely different story. There is a movie in development for 2009 release based on a Jennifer Egan novel. --—— Gadget850 (Ed) talk - 12:49, 31 May 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
There was also Castle Keep, another supernatural WW2 film set in a castle, from 1969. Very different in tone but it's easy to mix the two up. As of 2010 there is a similar production in the very early stages, Panzer 88,[1] although this seems to be just a lot of concept art and promises at the moment. -Ashley Pomeroy (talk) 22:17, 22 September 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The actual Keep[edit]

Does anyone know if there is an actual castle where this was filmed? I know the inside of the keep was filmed on soundstages, but what about the outside as well as the village? - (talk) 03:51, 14 February 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Is there a suitable category for anti-German propaganda movies? -- (talk) 21:41, 23 October 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Are there any reliable sources that indicate the movie was anti-German or even anti-Nazi? --  Gadget850 talk 14:20, 24 October 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
No. Nor is there a basis for categorizing this as a vampire film. Both "vampire" and "anti-fascist" film categories should be removed. If there are no objections I will do this. Apex156 (talk) 21:53, 13 November 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
