With a theme that probably influenced 2000's Final Destination, 1983's
Sole Survivor is not nearly as high-action or exciting, but it's still a
pretty good story.
A TV producer (Anita Skinner) is the only survivor of an airliner
crash, and she walks away with minor bruises.
At first, Denise seems fine, but eventually she becomes overcome by
feelings of guilt at being the only survivor. As she tries to get on with
her life, she begins to see people who seem to be following her. Then she
finds out that the people she has supposedly seen are newly deceased. Are
they sent by Death to collect on a debt?
As I said, somewhat similar in theme to the movie that followed it, but
much more low-key, however, it also had a young Brinke Stevens doing a
strip-poker scene that pretty much can only be described as gratuitous
nudity, so that raised the interest level somewhat. Not a bad flick.
