    I waited about a million years for them to release "Cannery Row," and it's finally happening in January.... Perhaps perseverance will pay off for "The Keep" as well. I've got a laserdisc rip and am not very happy with it. A Bluray with the extra material would be fantastic.

    In spite of all the idiotic squabbles, can't these clowns figure out that they would absolutely make considerable green by releasing this film?????? I mean, geeeeeeezzzz, Lou-eeze!!!!!

    Tick-Tock, Tick-Tock, Tick-Tock.....

    Gahhhhhhhh!!!!! Some of the worst movies in the world being released on BluRay, and we can't even get this classic out on normal DVD. C'mon, Mann!!! Lose your friggin' ego (or whatever your problem is), and release this movie in some form or another: Give a lot of viewers what they crave, and make a lot of money in the process. I mean, DUH!!!! Wake up, boy!!:mad:

    I love this movie big time. I got the WS Laserdisc too. Great movie with a trippy atmosphere. This film is a hidden gem, love it.

    "Written and directed by Michael Mann(LAST OF THE MOHICANS, THE INSIDER, ALI, HEAT, MANHUNTER) creates a good flick called THE KEEP"

    Sorry, I can't sign such a badly written text, even though I want the film out...

    I still can't believe this hasn't been released. It's becoming the DVD vaporware equivalent to Duke Nukem Forever. I don't see Paramount folding anytime soon, though. ;)

    It will have been worth the wait. If the originally planned extras are really going to be included, you can look forward to an Interactive Menu, Chapter Selection and supposedly even a Theatrical Trailer.

    Fingers crossed for a P&S version on Side B.

    I just re-read the book a few months ago because I was tired of waiting for the DVD.

    Well, well, well.... We've officially been chatting about this for over 7 years now and nothing has changed. GAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!! How frustrating. When I look around at some of the absolute TRASH that has been released onto DVD and Bluray, I absolutely rage at the idea that this film, particularly an extended version, sits in a vault somewhere because Michael Mann is a major dork.

    I guess I'll go watch the laser disc version again.... It's better than nothing, I guess.

    "Where there's life, there's hope...." I'm beginning to wonder about that.... :<(

    I want a DVD and blu-ray too. But in the meantime, I'm pretty sure it is available streaming in HD on Netflix. At least it is out there.
