Cigarette Burns and Electric Sheep are proud to present a 35mm screening of Michael Mann’s 1983 lost classic The Keep.

Screw your VHS.
Sod Laserdisc.

And bollocks to streaming.

We got THIRTY FIVE MILLIMETREs of celluloid, jam-packed with THE KEEP!

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 Michael 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 MacKellen, playing a Jewish theologian, is freed from a concentration camp to help send Molasar back from whence he came.

Tangerine Dream provide the dark atmospheric score.

Cigarette Burns have teamed up with Electric Sheep Magazine to bring a very special and rare screening of a film never released on DVD, making it nearly as mythical as Molasar himself. Join the Facebook event.
