Moments after take off, a passenger Jetliner plummets to the ground killing all on board except its pilot 'Keller' (Robert Powell). After the investigation declares that no one should have survived the crash, Keller finds
himself tortured with guilt and sets upon a journey of discovery to find out who was responsible and how he managed to survive.

The Survivor is directed by Actor/Director David Hemmings (Blow Up, Harlequin) and is based on the best selling book by horror writing legend James Herbert. Based on a terrifying and mysterious tale that has echoes of 'The Sixth Sense' and 'Unbreakable', this is an overlooked horror from an overlooked master of the genre.

The story of the sole survivor of a devastating plane crash being the pilot and his subsequent search for answers is an interesting enough plot to grab the senses, however the film is tangled like the wreckage of a downed airliner. The James Herbert novel on which this film is based contains more than enough drama and horror to fill an hour and a half but the resulting film, which decides to deviate in several tangents, seems a bit of a cutting room casualty. Robert Powell in the lead role is very good but does have the look of someone struggling with a poor script and lack of direction. The Jenny Agutter character is either over or under used but it is hard to tell which. There are good points in this too - the opening crash is done well for the era (early 80's) and there are a couple of good 'jumps' but the whole piece is unsettled and at times difficult to understand. Worth watching but let down by plot and direction (by the much missed David Hemmings).
