In 1981 actor David Hemmings stepped behind the camera to direct an atmospheric version of James Herbert’s famed novel, The Survivor.
Boasting an all-star cast including Robert Powell, Jenny Agutter and Joseph Cotton, the film was the first Australian movie to cost more than A$1,000,000
Moments after take-off, a passenger plane plummets to the ground, killing everyone on board – except the pilot, Keller (Powell).
Unable to remember anything about the crash, Keller finds himself tortured with feelings of guilt, and sets out on a journey of discovery to find out the truth about who was responsible for the crash, and how he was able to survive.
Foreshadowing films like The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable, The Survivor combines spectacular scenes with a moody and chilling atmosphere.
