A thriller classic
16 December 2018 | by jadavixSee all my reviews

"What Keeps You Alive" is an excellent little survival thriller movie with some genuinely tense, shocking, and terrifying moments.

It is the story of a lesbian couple who go to the woods to celebrate their one year anniversary when things go very wrong.

What follows is a brutal tale of survival and suspense.

I do not want to say much, as I knew nothing about this movie going into it and I think that is the best way to view it. I will say, however, that its rating on IMDB is ridiculous. 5.8? I don't know how anybody could have been disappointed by this movie. What were they expecting?
