| 31 minutes of pure, unadulterated horror.
Survivor Type was made in 2011-2012, shown at the Everybody Dies Film Festival – winning the 'Most Disturbing Film' Award. Gideon Emery puts on an amazing performance – winning him numerous awards for Best Actor (in a Short Film). Director Billy Hanson won numerous awards for the movie; and the movie is described as 'one of the best and most disturbing Stephen King adaptations'. I was lucky enough to get a copy of the movie when I saw Gideon Emery at London Comic Con in May '15. I'm not entirely sure if you can buy the movie online on sites, but if you get the chance to watch this movie, I would seriously recommend it. 31 minutes of unrated horror, an amazing movie which I will be watching again.

Survivor Type is a short horror movie, based off the Stephen King story with the same name. Surgeon, Richard Pine, is stranded on a rock island, after surviving a cruise ship sinking. Trapped with no food, Richard must do what he can to survive and to make his way off the island before it's too late.

This movie was a gem to watch. Even though, some scenes did make me cringe away (watching through cracked fingers). Emery put on an amazing performance which made you feel as though you were on the island with Richard, not an easy feat to do.

I highly recommend seeing this movie if you ever get the chance to. I would rate this film an 8/10 (on behalf of a little shaky start – it takes a few minutes for you to get sucked in), but if you get the chance to, I highly recommend you take it. 31 minutes of your life you will thoroughly enjoy if you're a Stephen King and/or horror fan.
