Penny (Danielle Donahue) got lucky - when all her friends and even her fiancé got killed by a serialkiller called the Survivalist (Jesse-Lee Lafferty), she didn't only manage to escape, she even managed to kill the Survivalist in self defense, thus not only saving her own life but also that of his potential future victims. Now some would call Penny a hero ... but she doesn't feel like one: The Survivalist left her scarred, her face is a mess, one of her eyes is destroyed, and her one knee might never fully heal. Plus she has also lost all of her friends in one go, and even the one man she ever loved. And the whole experience has left her with horrible horrible nightmares. But of course, there are plenty of people there who try to help her, people including Detective Mosser (Lonnie Thomas), who even takes a personal interest in her, psychiatrist Dr Lentz (Bruce Lentz), and even news anchor Alicia Hayes (Kaitlyn Shoeb), who wants to make a hero out of her ... but Penny just wants to get away from it all, being ripped out of her former life (not only has she lost all the people dear to her, she has also been a stripper, an occupation no longer open to her due to her scars), and people with good intentions but empty phrases are the last thing she needs. Problem is, Penny starts having nightmares, and they grow stronger almost daily - but the real problem is that people turn up dead who she has dreamed about in her nightmares, and Penny's less than sure she isn't guilty, having suffered from everything, including severe anger issues, of late. But there might be much more to this story than just an almost murder victim going wacko ...

 

Survival Knife is quite an intense little thriller, and not so much even because it's gruesome and tense in all the right places (which it totally is), but because it really keeps you guessing to the end, surprises you in the end, and still comes across as logical enough regarding characters to totally work. And add to that a directorial effort not solely based on sensationalism, and a great central performance of Danielle Donahue, and you've got yourself a very powerful movie - that might give you nightmares though ...
