We have heard a rumour that Code Red DVD will be releasing Thom Eberhart’s horror/thriller Sole Survivor on DVD. Originally released in 1983,Sole Survivor was Night of the Comet Director Thom Eberhardt’s writing and directing debut. A pre-cursor to the more recent Final Destination, Sole Survivor tells the tale of a sole survivor of an airplane crash. However, the survivor cheated death, and the grim reaper is out to even the score. There is no official release date at present, but as soon as we hear more, we’ll let you know.
