Producer Antony I. Ginnane plans to be staying busy on the remake scene. He was the man behind Patrick and its remake Patrick: Evil Awakens, and now he’s digging up two more of his films, The Survivor and Thirst to get the redux treatment.
The news comes via Screen Daily. “Genre – particularly thrillers, sci-fi and action – never really dates,” said Ginnane. “Sales agents and international buyers like something that has been previously tested, has cult resonance and is made for a price. In some cases we are selling to the children of the guys who bought the originals.”
Rod Hardy-directed 1979’s Thirst. The descendant of Elizabeth Bathory is abducted by a cult of self-proclaimed supermen who achieve this state of superiority by drinking from the “blood cows” (read: people) kept at the “dairy farm”, and they try to get her to join them.
David Hemmings directed the 1981 flick, The Survivor. A plane crashes just after takeoff and the only survivor, the pilot walks out of the wreckage. He doesn’t remember the explosion or the crash, but 300 passengers & crew are dead. As the investigation goes on people are wanting answers.
