Synopsis

"Masterful ... will shake you for days" – Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York

"Riveting ... Mad Max in the countryside" – Eric Kohn, Indiewire

"Unflinching ... This is as real as it gets." – Adam Patterson, Film Pulse

In a post-apocalyptic future ravaged by overpopulation, a lone survivor (Martin McCann) mercilessly protects his remote sliver of property from intruders. When a mother (Olwen Fouéré) and daughter (Mia Goth, A Cure For Wellness) in search of food and shelter show up at his doorstep, he's suspicious, but cautiously allows them in. Soon, an uneasy alliance, borne of necessity, forms between the trio – but distrust and paranoia threaten to give way to violence at any moment. The Survivalist, the intense, heart-pounding debut feature from Stephen Fingleton, viscerally evokes the fear, tension, and all-consuming desperation of life in a kill-or-be-killed dystopia.

Why We Love It

The Survivalist is one of the better post-apocalyptic films out there and features flawless performances by the three leads. Martin McCann reminds of me of a young Viggo Mortensen and I look forward to seeing a lot more of him. Besides Fingleton's precise and assured direction, the other star on the crew is director of photography Damien Elliott. His sense of composition, framing, and movement elevate the film to another level. Shout Factory delivers a rock-solid transfer and excellent lossless audio that acutely captures the film's natural environment. The making-of doc covers a lot of ground in twenty minutes and the inclusion of three short films that Fingleton worked on are a wonderful complement to the main feature. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.” – Dr. Stephen Larson, Blu-ray.com
