Trailer and Poster for PA Thriller ‘The Survivalist’

Stephen Fingleton’s PA Thriller

Hot on the heels of a BAFTA nomination for Outstanding Debut, Bulldog Film Distribution has released the first official trailer and poster for Stephen Fingleton’s post-apocalyptic thriller, The Survivalist.

Shot in Northern Ireland, the film is set in a future where society has broken down and each and every person must fend for themselves. The film boasts stellar performances from Martin McCann and Olwen Fouere.

Also starring Mia Goth, Andrew Simpson, and Douglas Russel, the film opens in theaters and is available on VOD in the UK on February 12th, and is still lacking a US distributor.

The trailer shows off the intensity without giving away too much of the plot. Watch below.

What I love most about this trailer is that the characters are being pushed in ethically questionable situations which are very interesting to watch unfold.

Stephen Fingleton’s PA Thriller

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.
