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 245...and there's good man inside of you fighting to come out.

The Mummy (2017) tells the story of Nick Morton, a tomb-raiding soldier serving in Iraq. Morton accidentally becomes cursed with ancient Egyptian magic, embroiled in a shady organisation's fight against evil, and must do what it takes to prevent the Egyptian Princess Ahmanet (who has been dead for 5,000 years) from running amok.

We ask ourselves: what went wrong with this film? How much Tom Cruise is too much Tom Cruise? And look forward to a lively discussion about the transportation of rare metal in the ancient world.

All of which leads to one important question: How would you survive?

Whatever happens, one thing's for sure: That was safely hidden for 5,000 years before you dropped a Hellfire missile on it.

Next time, it's the spookiest time of the year, so look out for Halloween Kills (2021).

It's episode 244...and I only gamble with my life, never my money.

The Mummy (1999) tells the story of the treasure-hunting trio of Rick, Evelyn and Jonathan, who head to the Ancient Egyptian city of Hamunatpra in the hope of unearthing riches. Instead, they awaken the cursed tomb of Imhotep, who rises from the dead and brings with him the Ten Plagues of Egypt.

We crack open a 90s adventure classic, read aloud from the book of Evelyn, look upon Brendan Fraser's works and delight and, for the second film running, question why a man returned from the living dead with supernatural powers needs slaves at all.

All of which leads to one important question: How would you survive?

Whatever happens, one thing's for sure: When Ramses destroyed Syria, that was an accident. You are a catastrophe!

Next time, it's the final part of our triple-bill of Mummies, as we finally step into the Dark Universe with The Mummy (2017).
