Audience Reviews for The Survivor
Feb 18, 2013The Survivor is a truly unique horror film that combines elements of supernatural and survival horror into one movie and the result is an interesting concept for a movie that uses an everyday disaster as a basis to start off with the horror. The film wastes no time to dive into the action, and it starts off with the plane crash. Directed with flair by David Hemmings and a cast headed by Robert Powell, The film is a memorable addition to the genre, one that is very well paced and acted, but also at times shows signs of a plot that could have been reworked slightly. Even if it's slightly unfocused, there's plenty of good material on-screen to keep you involved from start to finish, and the idea behind the plot is quite intriguing and overcomes the film's weaknesses. For a low budget feature, I am surprised that they were able to pull off something good in the effects department, and of course I'm talking about the plane crash at the start of the film. For the film's budget, it is very well done and pretty exciting. There are also many terrifying scenes that build the tension in the viewer and it works very well. What separates Australian horror films from American ones is that they tend to rely a lot on atmosphere to create the terror, and I've said that many times before, but it's true. Aussie films tend to have a certain quality that American films miss, and they are more often than not better as well. With a great cast and a good plot, The Survivor is a well crafted horror film that is definitely worth seeing. If you love supernatural horror tales, then this one is sure to satisfy.Alex r Super Reviewer
