A survivor of an oil-related catastrophe secludes himself from the world and sets up shelter in the woods. The arrival of two unexpected visitors threaten the stabilities he has found for himself in violent and brutal ways.


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) 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 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.


Critic Quotes:

“Impressively lean and rigidly controlled, “The Survivalist” achieves, at times, the primitive allure of a silent movie.“ – The New York Times

“A post-apocalyptic drama as stripped-down as its title suggests, The Survivalist envisions end times in which each encounter with a new human entails a hard calculus of risk versus advantage.” – Hollywood Reporter

“Masterful… Will shake you for days.” – Time Out New York

“Riveting… Mad Max in the countryside.” – IndieWire
