How to Survive

'How to Survive' is a film review podcast with a twist. The discussion centres around one key question: 'How would you survive in this movie?' Each episode centres around one classic movie. Often, they are horror movies, but there are also lots of thrillers, action movies, adventure movies and the occasional romantic drama for good measure. If you've ever rolled your eyes when the victim goes outside alone; tutted when the killer returns from the dead; or shouted 'DON'T GO IN THERE!', this is the podcast for you.

In this episode of How to Survive, Chris and Joe review the recent horror movie It Follows, and discuss how they would survive the events of the film.

We've all had a romantic encounter which we went on to regret - but what if your romantic encounter left you cursed to be stalked by a demonic, murderous wraith for the rest of your life? 

That's the premise of It Follows, and naturally it leads to some very interesting discusssion.

You'll hear all the ups and downs of this contemporary classic, including a tense discussion of the subversion of horror cliches, the dangers of water, and the logistics of surveying Detroit's sex workers.

Not forgetting the all important question:

How would you survive?

Another classic film solved by the best movie podcast in the world.

In the first episode of How to Survive, Chris and Joe review the original Friday the 13th, then discuss how they would survive the events at Camp Crystal Lake.

Despite having a questionable script, two-dimensional characters, and a plot which is both predictable and incoherent, Friday the 13th remains the quintessential horror movie - and the original slasher film.

We talk about all the highs and lows of this classic movie, including the incredible feats of strength employed by an old lady; a slew of tragically preventable bad decisions; a criminal amount of time dedicated to vehicle manouveres, and the most important question of all:

How would you survive?

Whatever happens, one things for sure... We'll be laughing about this tomorrow, I promise.
