The Survivor

1h 38m Fantasy, Horror, Mystery, Australia, Australian 1981

A pilot walks away unscathed as the sole survivor after a 747 jetliner crashes, tortured with guilt he sets out to uncover the truth of the disaster.

When a 747 jetliner crashes and explodes, the inferno kills everyone onboard except the pilot (Robert Powell) who miraculously walks away from the wreckage dazed but unscathed.

Tortured with guilt and unable to explain the crash, he sets out with the aid of a young psychic (Jenny Agutter) and a priest (Joseph Cotten) to overcome his memory loss and unravel the mystery of the disaster - and in the process, unlocks a nightmare of madness, murder and beyond-the-grave supernatural horror.

Based on the bestselling novel from famed horror specialist James Herbert - and directed by iconic UK thesp David Hemmings - this atmospheric shocker delivers heart-stopping chills alongside the largest and most complex pyrotechnics stunt ever staged down-under - all lensed by Oscar winning cinematographer John Seale.
