A World War II Fairytale: The Making of Michael Mann’s The Keep

the-keep-horrorThere have been some exceptional ‘fan made’ documentaries for classic horror films made over the last few years, the superlative Beware The Moon: Remembering An American Werewolf in London and Unearthed and Untold: The Path to Pet Semetary being two of the best examples to the studios as to how it should be done. Along with the fantastic Thommy Hutson documentaries Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy and His Name Was Jason: 30 Years of Friday the 13th, we are getting some real quality in the genre. Now we have a documentary in the works for little known but well regarded cult flick The Keep. Directed by Michael Mann of Manhunter, Heat and Last of The Mohicans fame.

In 2011, UK filmmaker Stewart Buck and french artist Stephane Piter began a journey to document the films production. Confronting the harsh realities of filmmaking, A World War II Fairytale is the definitive documentary on the film and the world and philosophy of The Keep.

Featuring further insight into the people behind the film and the source material that inspired it. Buck brought the project to the market at the Fantasia International Film Festival recently to find completion funds and it seems like the trip was fruitful for the UK filmmaker.
