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 255...and here I am. A survivor attempting to tell my story, and find healing. 

Halloween Ends (2022) tells the story of Corey Cunningham, a babysitter who gets more than he bargained for when he accidentally kills the child in his care. Avoiding jail time, he falls in love with Allison, the granddaughter of Laurie Strode, who is now fully recovered from the trauma of the last 40 years. Don’t worry about it. 

We talk about the most bewildering film sequel(s) of all time; the benefits of relocating; and hypocrisy runs rife when Joe starts handing out advice on microphone discipline. 

Whatever happens, one thing's for sure: a psycho meets a freak show. This is a match made in heaven.

It's episode 253...and I'm smarter than a beaver.
 
Prey (2022) tells the story of Naru, a young Commanche woman who is eager to be recognised as a great hunter. To earn the respect of her peers, she intends to hunt a creature which normally preys on humans... but it's a classic case of be careful what you wish for, as an intergalactic hunter equipped with lasers, invisibility and a bad attitude has just rolled into town.
 
We talk about the honour codes of intergalactic hunters; the importance of taking your chances; and the obvious benefits of silencing any gargles, coughs and clicks when you're trying to employ stealth.
 
Whatever happens, one thing's for sure: If it bleeds, we can kill it.

It's episode 252...and this wasn't what I had in mind when I agreed to help out on your film.
 
X (2022) tells the story of aspiring pornstar Maxine, who takes a roadtrip to a remote farmhouse to shoot an adult film with her motley film crew buddies. Will the farm's elderly residents, including the mysterious and apparently infirm Pearl, prove happy about providing the backdrop for a smutty film? Who could say.
 
It's smiles all round as we discuss revisionist slashers and elderly flashers, alligators, octogenarian daters, electronic masturbators and fundamentalist Christian agitators, and ask ourselves whether this is the most likeable cast of survivors in the subgenre's history?
 
Whatever happens, one thing's for sure: Pointing it and waving it around is usually enough to scare them straight.
 
We're back in two weeks with sci-fi sequel Prey (2022), or if you don't want to wait that long, sign up to our 'That's Fine' tier on Patreon to get it a week early!
