The Survivor (1981)

“One of the classier efforts from the golden age of Aussie exploitation.” - Mondo Digital

When a 747 crashes in a Sydney suburb — a still-spectacular sequence that helped make this the most expensive Australian film of its time — the inferno kills everyone on board except the pilot (Robert Powell, TOMMY), who emerges from the wreckage miraculously unscathed. As a local psychic (Jenny Agutter, AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON) communicates with the doomed passengers’ spirits, a nightmare of madness, murder and supernatural horror is unlocked. In his final film performance, Hollywood legend Joseph Cotten co-stars in this shocker directed by British film icon David Hemmings (BLOW-UP; DEEP RED) and produced by Ozploitation maverick Antony I. Ginnane (THIRST; PATRICK; TURKEY SHOOT).
