The Synopsis for The Survivalist (2015) 720p

In a kill-or-be-killed world where starvation is rife and strangers are always dangerous, The Survivalist lives off the grid, and by his wits. When a starving woman and her teenage daughter discover his forest refuge, his loneliness drives him to overcome his suspicion and strike a bargain with them in return for bed and board. But as desire becomes stronger than necessity, the exchange becomes an uneasy, ongoing arrangement which threatens not only his carefully constructed world but also his life.

The Reviews for The Survivalist (2015) 720p


A low-budget gemReviewed byeuroGaryVote: 9/10

The opening shot of 'The Survivalist' cleverly sets the situation in which the film is set: the camera follows two lines on a graph, one showing oil production, the other world population. While the oil one starts to reduce, the population one continues its dizzying climb (appropriately, the film is set in Ireland, home of the European Union's highest birth rate!) until suddenly plummeting. Thus the scene is set.

An unnamed man (Martin McCann) lives in a forest, protecting his vegetable garden from occasional marauders with his rifle, his knife, and his totally naff haircut. This hand-to-mouth existence is disrupted one morning when a mother and daughter appear, seeking to barter the sexual favours of the daughter (Mia Goth) for food. The two women stay and, although suspicious, the man gradually, slightly, lets down his guard - but are the women as innocent as they appear?

Essentially a three-hander, at first glance this could make a good play, although live audiences might find their attention wandering during the long periods where nobody speaks as they tramp through the forest, do gardening, or irrigate the crops by urinating on them. But on film these sequences have a quiet beauty (well, not the urination) and, crucially, writer/director Stephen Fingleton - who has won several awards for this work - doesn't over-play them, or drag them out - something of which certain other directors of far more experience would be guilty.

The acting is good, with all three leads providing low-key but believable - as far as the circumstances allow - performances. Olwen Fouéré is especially noteworthy as the older woman seeking to manipulate things in order to survive, and McCann provides some good facial expressions that well convey emotions that would otherwise remain unexpressed, such is the monosyllabic speech of his character.

Combining human interest with tension and threat, this is a low-budget gem that is well worth seeing if you get the chance.

Super low budget not worth even discussingReviewed bybhoffman-08804Vote: 1/10

While it appeared as though this film would be an interesting view to help kill some time on a Saturday afternoon, the lack of 'anything' made for probably one of the most boring movies I have seen in a very, very long time.

The lighting and camera angles were all off and the scenery, or lack thereof, was also - boring.

If you are into staring at the same room with a few shots of the front yard of an old shed for 2 hours, then by all means, rent away and enjoy.

Otherwise, there is no plot.

Oddly enough, the producer decided to throw in a pornographic scene showing (in slow motion and in full view) a man masturbating.

I can only assume that the director thought that 60 seconds of raw porn would boost ratings? I don't know and I don't care. I am just happy that I might help someone else avoid the torture of watching this dull waste of time flick.

Ridiculous movie.

All acting is on point and it is definitely not predictableReviewed byJimmy TrucksessVote: 8/10

Definitely a good movie to see. I think the Survivalist says maybe 20 lines in the whole movie but he plays the role perfect. I like the fact that it was hard to predict which direction the movie is going. One thing I am sure everyone hates is to waste their life watching a ridiculous movie that is so predictable where they even throw in bad acting. This won't take you there. At first I thought it was going to be like The Walking Dead but I was happy to see that it was far from that nonsense. The Walking Dead is just another overrated TV show. Enjoy.
