A Road to Hell Paved in Good Intentions The Keeper: Come Inside a Twisted Cop�s World

Acting legend Dennis Hopper depicts a good cop gone bad in The Keeper. Officer Krebs (Hopper) meets Gina (Asia Argento), a damsel in distress recovering at police barracks after narrowly escaping rape.

The young lady agrees, unaware that after escaping one madman she is running into the arms of another � albeit one in uniform.

Acting legend Dennis Hopper depicts a good cop gone bad in The Keeper. Officer Krebs (Hopper) meets Gina (Asia Argento), a damsel in distress recovering at police barracks after narrowly escaping rape. In what appears to be a random act of kindness, Krebs offers Gina a ride to the local bus station, where she will presumably leave town. The young lady agrees, unaware that after escaping one madman she is running into the arms of another � albeit one in uniform.

Earlier Krebs discovered that Gina worked full-time as an exotic dancer, a profession he finds immoral and abhorrent. The officer takes his passenger to the bus station�s entrance, though before she exits Krebs knocks Gina unconscious using a handkerchief doused in chemicals. When the dancer eventually awakes she is in the back of the officer�s truck, unaware of her whereabouts and in transit to Krebs� sinister lair.

At the trooper�s remote home Gina is locked inside a jail cell, located in Krebs� basement. Soon she learns that he intends to rehabilitate and reeducate the naughty stripper through psychological torture. Krebs does this using a system of points, where so-called good behavior inches Gina closer to freedom and minor acts of disobedience reduce her score to zero. Unfortunately the officer�s idea of good behavior also includes Gina eventually becoming his lover.

Gina will reluctantly play her kidnapper�s sick games, constantly awaiting an opportunity for a quick escape. Meanwhile, outside of the home, a police search for the lost dancer ensues, and Krebs� colleagues begin to doubt his good-guy facade.
