The motion picture "The Keep" question.
Back in the eighties there was a film called The Keep" in which a bad man held high a Cross of Jesus to shield himself from a demon. The monster took the cross from the bad man and crumpled it like putty and flung it aside. Then the demon absorbed /ate/subsumed the bad man.
My question is does that seem right, or even possible? Even though the man was crazy evil he shielded himself behind the Cross of Jesus so as to try and ward off a demon, and that means he is protected, right?

No. It is not possible.

Demons & deities do not exist. Crosses stop nothing. Holy symbols are based on the bronze-aged superstitions of migratorial desert primitives.

Re: The motion picture "The Keep" question.
I actually have it on video. It sells for up to £80. My copy wont though,its been watched too many times. I recommend the book its totally different and about a vampire with some very cool scenes.

in answer to your question, it wasn't a cross, it was a talisman,( I'm drunk atm but I'm sure its actually the Hilt to a sword) that stopped he "demon" going beyond yge walls. The other guy was part of the creature. The "good" part. Its basically a story if duality,which starts with the nazis / German army.

Please, read the book as well.Its like two stories for the price of one.

thanks btw, now I'm gonna watch it tomorrow.

Out of this ugliness may come,
Some day, so beautiful a flower,
That men will wonder at that hour,
Remembering smoke and flowerless slum,
And ask-glimpsing the agony
Of the slaves who wrestle to be free-
'But why were all the poets dumb?'
-William Montgomerie

So many gods, so many creeds,
So many paths that wind and wind,
While just the art of being kind
Is all the sad world needs.

That scene was in Fright Night followed by the vampire snarling "You have to have FAITH for this to work on me Mr, Vincent!"

Without Faith a cross is just jewelry.

Re: The motion picture "The Keep" question.
Symbols in and of themselves have no power. It is the faith of the person who uses them that gives them power.

This is the typical underlying 'rule' for using talismans to block 'spirit' entities.

Unfortunately the Keep (the Movie) was based off a book (poorly in many ways) thus a lot of the understory is lost, including that the talisman was for (it was not the cross of Jesus) and the relationship between the entity and the individual, which was important to know that relationship to 'get' why he was 'absorbed' by the entity.
