What's this petition about?
The Keep, a film released by Paramount in 1983 (marking its 30th anniversary this year), directed by Michael Mann, starring Scott Glenn and scored by Tangerine Dream to this day (2015/09/01), has yet to even be released on DVD, officially.
It did have a limited VHS and Laserdisc release, but we've now passed the DVD age and have moved on into Blu-ray technology. This petition is to Paramount, Michael Mann and Tangerine Dream to work together and through all the legal issues to finally bring us the official, full, director's cut of The Keep on Blu-ray in a high-definition transfer.
Perhaps, this is something that Scream Factory can make happen.
More about the film itself.
A wonderfully stylish horror/fantasy film that has built a cult following over the years. From Wikipedia:
Within a deserted citadel (the "Keep" of the title) in World War II Romania lies entrapped a dangerous and malevolent entity named Radu Molasar. When the German Army occupies the castle to control the Dinu Mountain Pass, Molasar is unwittingly unleashed from deep within the innermost recesses of the citadel by a pair of treasure-seeking soldiers who pry precious metal icons from the keep's inner walls. When the icons come free, 'something' changes and the viewer gets a sense of foreboding. In the ensuing days, Molasar emerges briefly and consumes the treasure seekers' life energy. A detachment of Einsatzkommandos then arrives to deal with what is thought to be partisan activity. The Einsatzkommandos' actions only fuel the demon's hunger for bloodshed and soon more troops begin to die in mysterious, gruesome ways.
At the instigation of the local priest, the Germans retrieve a Jewish historian, Professor Theodore Cuza, from a death camp to decipher a mysterious message emblazoned on a wall of the keep. The demonic and, at this point, cloudlike Molasar saves the professor's daughter, Eva Cuza, from a sexual assault by two Einsatzkommandos and then enlists the aid of her grateful father to escape from the Keep. Cuza is also cured of his debilitating scleroderma by the touch of Molasar and therefore becomes doubly indebted to the malevolent entity. However, a mysterious stranger arrives to foil this plan. After a misguided and unsuccessful attempt by the professor to have the "angelic" stranger stopped, and after a sexual liaison between the "angel" and Eva, the two supernatural beings engage in a confrontation in which the demon is weakened and drawn back into the innermost recesses. Concurrently, the mysterious heroic 'angel' becomes tansformed into the same metallic icons, thus forming a sort of plug or key inset into the keep's inner walls retaining the malevolent Molasar once more.
Strangely enough, the film can be found on Netflix Instant Watch.
