4.0 out of 5 stars pschological thriller made in australia April 4 2013
By Marcia TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
British actor Robert powell plays captain keller, a 747 pilot, who survives a crash when 300 passengers are killed. keller has amnesia, but anxious to understand why he survived he follows a psychic (jennu agutter, american warewolf in london) back to the crash site. suprise ending.

Suspenseful film thanks to good cinematography, musical score and David hemmings( deep red, blow up) direction. the viewer is led from the crash slowly through occult hints of the dead wanting the pilot (revenge? understanding?) along w/ the investigators searching for a logical reason. the juxtiposition of reason vs. the unknown and unknowable provides chills and thrills. Suprisingly scarey/good flick for the price.

Shown in unedited 99 min. version from the original widescreen master in both katrina's theatre format and feature movie only.

Extras: audio commentary w/ producer Tony ginnane, moderated by katrina waters; original trailer.

3.0 out of 5 stars Superior supernatural fare Oct. 24 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:VHS Tape
An Australian film with British leads, made by the Fayman/Ginnane team, The Survivor is based upon the book by James Herbert. When a 747 crashes shortly after take-off, the sole survivor is the pilot. Virtually unhurt, he and the investigators look for the answers to the disaster. Meanwhile mysterious deaths occur in the community and only a psychic, in touch with the supernatural, can help the pilot unravel the mystery surrounding the doomed plane. Directed by actor David Hemmings(Blow-up), The Survivor manages to create an eerie feeling throughout and although the pacing lags in places, the opening scenes are gripping, the acting is top-notch and there is a great shock ending(a la Twilight Zone).Robert Powell(Jesus of Nazareth) gives an intense performance as Captain Keller, desperately searching for answers to the crash. Jenny Agutter(American Werewolf in London) is also convincing as Hobbs, a psychic plagued by the spirits of the diaster. An aging Joseph Cotten is cast in a small role as the priest and he plays it well. If you're looking for monster,slasher,special-effect laden babe-fest science-fiction,this movie will not be your cup of tea. However, if subtle, well-crafted film that requires thought from the viewer is for you,The Survivor might just do the trick.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good with a twist. Aug. 18 2005
By Daveomatic - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
A pilot of a 747 jetliner, Captain Keller, who's 747 suffers a bomb blast shortly after takeoff and 300 passengers are incinerated as the plane explodes into flames. A short time latter, keller is found wandering unharmed and quite unable to understand how he has survived. The mystery deepends as Keller is taken down the path of both the "Sixth Sense" and "Unbreakable" have followed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Flight Of The Damned... Aug. 17 2008
By Bindy Sue Frønkünschtein - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Capt. David Keller (Robert Powell from Asylum) is the only survivor of a tragic explosion aboard a 747 filled w/ 300 passengers and crew. He walks away from the flaming wreckage, dazed, and unable to remember what happened. A series of strange, fatal "accidents" befall those who get involved w/ the disaster, including a nosey photographer and his wife. A mysterious, ghostly girl appears to lead them to their doom. Meanwhile, Keller is joined by a psychic named Hobbs (Jenny Agutter from An American Werewolf In London), and together they must figure out why the dead are so ticked off. The answer to this question fuels the big finalé, where all is revealed, and the restless spirits receive the justice / vengeance they demand. THE SURVIVOR is a tasty crawler of a movie w/ mystery, suspense, and a fair amount of ghoulishness...

3.0 out of 5 stars Like it for nostalgic reasons... Jan. 23 2014
By Leslie Karen Rigsbey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"The Survivor" is a film with a premise that is better than its execution. While the story, based upon a novel by the now-deceased British author James Herbert, is a fairly strong supernatural thriller, this film--with its bizarre editing, lack of interesting characters, odd music, loopy plot holes, and inconsistent pacing--turns an initially intriguing concept into a tub of grotesque frog soup. It just isn't very tasteful. Some of the performances are very nice indeed, but the film is edited in such a way as to prevent one from enjoying them too much. The ending, especially, is bizarre and if you aren't following it you probably won't get what is going on.
The Nightmare Theater DVD is tremendous, with Katarina and the film's producer providing a very interesting--and very listenable--audio commentary track. There are also trailers, plus Katarina's foxy introductions to each film, and it's no different on this edition. "The Survivor" may not be an essential horror film purchase, but it's fun for nostalgic purposes. I'm not surprised, though, that Herbert fell asleep while trying to screen the film. C-
4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful March 22 2014
By Fred Adelman - Published on Amazon.com

I love Australian horror films and this one is a spooky supernatural tale about the lone survivor of a plane disaster. The ending of this film has been copied many times after, but this is the original and it hits you like a ton of bricks. Another great transfer from Scorpion Releasing in its original aspect ratio.
