Keep My Grave Open (1980)





Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.

Movie Info

This unsettling but moody low-budget psycho-thriller -- a drive-in version of Repulsion with a Southern Gothic flavor -- stars the eerie-looking Camilla Carr as a demented young recluse who believes herself to be possessed by the spirit of her long-lost brother (who is presumed dead), and slays any man who makes sexual advances toward her -- usually running them through with a sword. Her dementia intensifies, leading her to take her own life by chewing on broken glass (a particularly unsettling scene). The chief plot twist and subsequent dramatic punchline -- involving the brother's true identity and whereabouts -- is a long time coming, but fairly satisfying nonetheless.

Audience Reviews for Keep My Grave Open

Unmemorable slow yet eerie film that doesn't make much sense or give much entertainment. There are a few good moments, some scares, and a nice mood, but none of it leaves an impression.

You probably can figure out who the killer is & whats really going on just by reading the movie description.Keep My Grave Open is basically just a horror flick (If you can call it that) to pass the time away & nothing more.I wouldn't recommend watching it unless you're straight up fiending for a horror flick & you can't find another.Even then you probably won't make it all the way through.I started to fall asleep near the end & turned it off

A female Norman Bates kills off yokels with a samurai sword. No surprises, no suspense, no reason to watch.
