6. The Keep

The second feature from Michael Mann following the crime thriller “Thief” and an adaptation of the horror novel of the same name from F. Paul Wilson, following a platoon of German soldiers who set up camp at a derelict Transylvanian castle, accidentally unleashing an ancient and powerful evil worse than any mere ghost. The film is a bit of a hodgepodge due to the troubled post-production, but the style of Mann’s directing and cinematography combined with the haunting score from Tangerine Dream combined with the eerie aesthetic of the castle make for an unforgettable and dream-like landscape. -Jacob Davison
