F. Paul Wilson's novel The Keep was adapted for the big screen by Michael Mann. While visually captivating, and memorable, Mann's screenplay has been called "absurd, flawed, and occasionally transcendent," and "alarming and appalling," by critics and reviewers. We are showing it here in all its 80s synth glory, with the added bonus of Guest of Honor F. Paul Wilson who will introduce the movie, make remarks, and do Q&A afterwards.

Paul was born and raised in New Jersey where he misspent his youth playing with matches, poring over Uncle Scrooge and E.C. comics, reading Lovecraft, Matheson, Bradbury, and Heinlein, listening to Chuck Berry and Alan Freed on the radio, and watching Soupy Sales and Shock Theatre with Zacherley.
