  • A time of starvation. The Survivalist lives off a small plot of land hidden deep in forest protecting his crop from intruders with his shotgun and improvised traps. But the long years alone have taken their toll on him and he is beginning to lose his grip on reality.

  • The Survivalist shows self-preservation from a very psychological perspective. There is planting and hunting for instance but the crux of the movie is whom to trust and when. A quiet film with intense, expressive faces, and sporadic heart-pounding moments.

  • The Survivalist is a stripped-down exercise in cinematic exposition that suggests its creator is a major talent Somewhere between the dystopian dreamscapes of Andrei Tarkovsky’s Stalker , the gothic western intrigue of Don Siegel’s The Beguiled , and the low-budget invention of Shane Carruth’s Primer lies this impressively unforgiving debut feature from Derry-born writer/director Stephen Fingleton.

His fears for his life are justified when a suspicious mother and daughter, then a band of armed pillagers, come seeking his provisions.

  • The Survivalist was filmed in Northern Ireland. The post-apocalyptic thriller was released in UK cinemas and on demand on 12 February 2016 and in the United States by IFC Midnight on May 19, 2017 in limited release. Release Critical reception. The Survivalist received positive reviews from critics.
