Storyline

Denise Watson is a TV station worker who is the only survivor of a unexplained, horrific airplane crash in which she is completely unscratched. Soon, Denise becomes haunted by feelings of unworthiness as well as seeing strange people following her and hearing voices calling her name which no one but she can hear. Disregarding warnings from a psychic actress friend, Denise tries to get on with her life while it's revealed that she was supposed to die in the crash, but somehow escaped, now the unseen specter of Death wants to collect her by sending its minions, people that have recently died, to kill Denise and finish the job what death had planned for.

Cheating death.
12 January 2010 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

Somewhat reminiscent to the cult favourite "Carnival of Souls" and an obvious influence of "Final Destination" series "Sole Survivor" is a creepy little shocker.Anita Skinner plays Denise Dalton,a television commercial producer who is the only survivor of a tragic airplane crash.She starts seeing threatening ghostly figures,who enjoy killing people.Denise is also confronted by a has-been actress who has visions of terrible things happening to Denise.Esoteric chiller with some great scares and a bit of nudity.The pace is sluggish,but the script is fresh and original and the editing is fine."Sole Survivor" is an eerie horror flick with enough subtle scares to satisfy horror fans.8 out of 10.
