Survivor post filming notes

What promised to be an easy shoot was dogged with eerie happenings. At times the shooting of the movie gave us genuine concerns for our lives. Unexplained goings on and the premature death of one of the grips lead to postponement of filming for 3 months whilst an (unrelated to the film) police investigation was conducted.

To top it off several injuries happened during filming. The director got his wrist broken when one of the stuntmen jumped on his hand during a take. One of the stuntmen fell down a hole and had to be taken to hospital. One of the extras got attacked by a wild dog when out in an abandoned district. Really filming was a total calamity.
