The 1981 horror is planned for Blu-ray in January.
In an early announcement to retailers, Severin says 'The Survivor' will be available on Blu-ray on January 10.
When a 747 crash lands in a Sydney suburb -- a still-spectacular sequence that helped make this the most expensive Australian film of its time -- the inferno kills everyone on board except the pilot (Robert Powell of Jesus of Nazareth and Tommy) who emerges from the wreckage miraculously unscathed. But as a local psychic (Jenny Agutter of An American Werewolf in London) begins to communicate with the spirits of the doomed passengers, it will unlock a nightmare of madness, murder and supernatural horror.
Hollywood legend Joseph Cotten in his final film performance co-stars in this shocker directed by British film icon David Hemmings (Blow-Up) and produced by Ozploitation maverick Antony I. Ginnane (Thirst, Turkey Shoot), featuring haunting cinematography by Academy Award winner John Seale (The English Patient, Mad Max: Fury Road) and now transferred in 2K HD for the first time ever.
The release will feature a new 2K restoration and supplements include: Not Quite Hollywood Extended Interviews with Producer Antony I. Ginnane and Cinematographer John Seale; The Legacy of James Herbert; Robert Powell on James Herbert - Archive TV Special On Location Featuring Interviews with Stars Joseph Cotten and Peter Sumner; Archive TV Interview with David Hemmings; Archive TV Interview with David Hemmings and Robert Powell; Antony I. Ginnane Trailer Reel; and TV Spot.
