From writer / director Colin Minihan, one half of the "Vicious Brothers" best known for the excellent "Grave Encounters" comes "what Keeps You Alive". A revenge tale in the vein of Get Out or I Spit On Your Grave.
Young newlyweds Jackie (Hannah Emily Anderson) and Jules (Brittany Allen) celebrate their first anniversary at Jackie's family cabin in a remote woods. Things about Jackie quickly start becoming more and more ominous when Jules finds out Jackie isn't the person she thought she was.
Soon, Jules becomes the hunted and Jackie is the hunter, with the goal to kill Jules for the insurance money. Or so we are led to believe.
The fact is, Jackie is a pure psychopath and watching her traverse that road was gripping and you couldn't take your eyes off it.
Both lead actors we very well cast and able to carry the weight of a feature film excellently.
The cinematography ranged from fantastic to bone jarring (literally) and the score was subtle but effective.
This film has been making the rounds of the film fest circuit and is one to keep an eye out for. It wraps a tense, tight suspenseful film perfectly in one package.
