This movie made so much money for Paramount Pictures that it made the producers went on to produce many big films. All they did was pick up a Low-budget Mexican film, clean it up, and ad some scenes and released it wide all across America. The plot is based on a true story of the Andes Mountain Plane crash where the survivors had to eat human flesh to survive. (Disney later remade this film and called it ALIVE and hired many white casts(?!). At least SURVIVE is true to real life as they were mostly Mexican on that plane). The so-called graphic violence is cheap and cheezy and is shown un-cut on Tv alot. Recommened if you are into these type of film. The director went on to make Universal tons of money in GUYANA CULT OF THE DAMMED 4 years later.
