Thoughts on What Keeps You Alive

Characters – Jackie is the owner of the house, well her family is, she brings her wife there to celebrate the anniversary, she has been trained in survival having a history with the place. Jules is the wife that can’t believe just how beautiful the location is, she must learn to adapt in the situation quickly if she is going to survive. The only other characters we meet are a couple across the lake.

PerformancesHannah Emily Anderson and Brittany Allen are our two leads, they are both great showing the intensity that both the characters must go through. The two are the only ones that get any real time on camera.

StoryThe story starts with what seems like a nice celebration but takes a sudden turn in tone and direction which brings the whole story to life. It turns into a cat-n-mouse style thriller which keeps you on edge, even if certain parts of this can be overly long. This does bottle down to keeping things simple as each scene seems to lead to a reveal of one trying to stay ahead of the other.

ThrillerThe thriller elements of the film keep us on edge from start to finish wondering just what will happen next.

SettingsThe film has a beautiful settings with stunning views, it does create the isolation needed for the events of the film to unfold in too.
