A canny study of trust and loyalty.

Top Critic

It is one of the more original post-apocalyptic films to be released as of late and is a curiously thought-provoking one at that, but its bleakness will not appeal to all audiences.

Film Ireland Magazine

Too slow for the mainstream, perhaps, this presents a disgusted worldview thats painstakingly plausible, however much we may wish differently.

Total Film

Fingleton proves himself quite the man for doing doomsday on a shoestring and taking his cast to some very dark places.

RTÉ (Ireland)

It's a lean, grim and perfectly assembled thriller, a little gem in fact.

Irish Independent

It won't be to everyone's taste, but perky though it is not, it's a great piece of film-making.

Audience Reviews for The Survivalist

The story: a guy living in the woods during some hard times. That's pretty much it. But so beautifully told that what's laid bare before the end are considerations hardly on the page at all, such as what constitutes trust? And that, once given, it has an expiration date as well. Pretty good stuff. Well done.
