The Race To Survive

The race to survive is on.

The survival challenge begins with cries of enthusiasm. As the survivalists jump into their rafts and set off down the river, Billy and Ben try to rally their respective team members. It seems to be going well, but the day soon takes a horrible turn and many are left fighting for their lives in the menacing waters. With Meena on a mission to kill and the elements set against them, the event turns into a race to survive, but who will lose?

That day, we’ll see Meena hold Victoria’s lifeless body under the water, but someone’s watching from afar. Wanting to find out just what they’ve seen, Meena follows them into the maze. With only one thing on her mind, Meena’s ready to kill should anyone get in her way…

There are many twists and turns this week but one thing is certain, it will end in tragedy for at least one person as Meena’s reign of terror takes hold.

An Interview with Duncan Foster

Are you pleased with what you have pulled off so far and did you take any inspiration from any other source/film?

We’ve had some absolutely amazing moments and I think it’s going to look great when we put it all together. I suppose I did look at a couple of the big Hollywood films. The River Wild with Meryl Streep was an inspiration for the rapid stunts. The rapids have been the hardest thing for us to shoot because in England we don’t have the Canadian Rockies so we’ve had to try and recreate that. There’s maybe a touch of The Shining in there as well. Generally, though, I do like to keep things original and try not to copy. I want it to be my idea. I’ve wanted to create moments where I can make you jump and create tension and fear and adrenaline rushes and then heartache. 

What can the audience expect from these episodes?

To be scared, to be shocked, to hopefully be misled at various moments. It may leave you with a sense of frustration but it’s going to be brilliant!
