“Queer horror, queer villains, and What Keeps You Alive”

“What Keeps You Alive is a great horror film that uses the visual perspective of its characters to paint a more unnerving picture than the script on its own would grant. While there have been endless stories of husbands terrorizing their wives, there’s been significantly less consideration of violent queer couplings. This story would have been scary in any context, but placing Jackie in the position of utilizing the complexity of queer identity in a way that distracts from her prolonged manipulation of Jules makes it all the more terrifying.” More from friend of the Gutter Sara Century at Bella Media.
