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.

It's episode 63... and the greatest hitman horror ever...

Kill List (2011) tells the story of Jay, a hitman who has been out of work for some time. Convinced to return to the job by his wife and his business partner, Jay's life is soon turned upside-down when he becomes embroiled in the world of the occult.

We talk about the benefits of gun modification; the benefits of acting like a Hackney crack addict; and how to become a hero of the working class.

All of which leads to one big question: 

How would you survive?

Whatever happens, one thing's for sure... No more guitar, mate. Not in restaurants. There is a time and a place. And your time and place is in a very isolated location, where no-one is likely to be for about a hundred years. Ok?

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

It's episode 62... and a lesson in the world of love...

The Lobster (2015) tells the story of David, who lives in a society where anyone incapable of finding love will be turned into an animal after 45 days alone. David finds himself at an intensive relationship-building course at a hotel, with his deadline fast approaching.

We talk about the animals best equipped to survive; the benefits of being a cold-blooded killer; and how to set up the most generic dating profile in the world.

All of which leads to one big question: 

How would you survive?

Whatever happens, one thing's for sure... If you encounter any problems you cannot resolve yourselves, you will be assigned children, that usually helps.

It's episode 61... and he's still out there... waiting...

Friday the 13th: Part VII The New Blood tells the story of Tina, a young woman with psychic powers (no, really) who has returned to Camp Crystal Lake to recover from the memories of killing her father there using her psychic powers (no, really) many years ago. The rest of the film is Jason Vorhees killing teenagers.

We talk about just how far the limits of psychic powers can be tested; the greatest Friday the 13th based quiz you'll hear this week; and we catch up on one of the most successful movie franchises of all time.

All of which leads to one big question: 

How would you survive?

Whatever happens, one thing's for sure... KING TUT... RISES FROM THE TOMB!

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

It's episode 60, and are you seeing what I'm seeing?

Don't Breathe (2016) tells the story of Rocky, a young girl who attempts to rob a blind man's house in the dead of night along with her friends. They soon learn that being blind doesn't make this particular man any less mean, and the tables are quickly turned...

We take survival advice from an old video game; dust off some old survival favourites; and discuss the limitations of living in an area which lacks social mobility...

All of which leads to one big question: 

How would you survive?

Whatever happens, one thing's for sure... just because you're blind, doesn't make you a saint...

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