A Psychopath Emerges in What Keeps You Alive this December 4th

The thriller What Keeps You Alive will release on home entertainment formats, in early December. This film, from director Colin Minihan (It Stains the Sands Red), is his third collaboration with actress Brittany Allen (Extraterrestrial, 2014). This time around, two women celebrated their anniversary on a remote island. Here, the two married women turn on each other, in the worst celebration ever. In the United States, Shout Factory will handle the film's release, while in Canada Mongrel Media is showing this title on DVD. A preview of both releases is hosted here.

What Keeps You Alive had its World Premiere earlier this year, at the SXSW Film Festival. In an earlier interview, Minihan said of the film and its inclusion of a psychopath: "I feel like this movie is just a shocking, tightly woven thriller, that dabbles in horror and offers a unique take at the psychopath sub-genre (Hollywood News)." There are a number of genres in the film. As well, Minihan also says of his characters: "I think that people will enjoy its darkness, but also fall in love with the characters in the film, and hopefully relate to them and root for them, and have a lot of fun doing so." These are complex portrayals, in What Keep You Alive.

This Ontario shot feature will release in a few days. On December 4th, What Keeps You Alive will be available on various formats, in Canada and the United States. The Canadian DVD release will not host many extras, if any. The release at Shout Factory has alternate art (found below) and extras are also sparse.
