”On the eve of their one-year wedding anniversary, Jules and Jackie become embroiled in a merciless fight for their lives when they find themselves pitted against the most unexpected of adversaries. As violence reigns down upon their idyllic forest getaway, the two women engage in a frenzied psychological and vicious battle that will test the very limits of their instinct to survive.

What Keeps You Alive is a plot driven film through and through. Therefore, to say too much about that aspect of it would do the film a disservice, as the less you know about the various twists and turns the story takes the better. — What Keeps You Alive is a beautifully shot film. — The film’s two central characters are incredibly compelling. Both Brittany [Allen] and Hannah [Emily Anderson] put on great performances, and the script gives them plenty to work with, making their characters three-dimensional.” – James Turner / Flickering Myth

”Effectively eerie and unnerving”
