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 257...and after you've taken everything, what will be left?
 
The Feast (2021) tells the story of a Welsh family who are hosting a dinner party for their neighbours and a business associate. Catering support is provided by Cadi, a local girl, who seems weighed down by some secret and confused by the actions of the family preparing for their party. Eventually, things take a turn, and let's leave it at that.
 
We talk about serving food on appropriate crockery; how to time a business proposition; and the appropriate amount of time to overlook someone's inexplicable muteness.
 
All of which leads to one question: How would you survive?
 
Whatever happens, one thing's for sure: My parents are so full-on so intense. If I don't take something before long, I might kill them.
 
Next time, food season continues with The Menu.

It's episode 256...and do I look like some kind of monster?
 
Barbarian (2022) tells the story of Tess, a young woman who shows up to an AirBnB in the middle of the night to find it already occupied. Thanks to a double-booking she and her unexpected roommate, Keith are forced to spend the night together. Is Keith all he seems? That's not the half of it.
 
We talk about familiar notes played perfectly; the benefits of listening to the experts; and the best ways to convince the police to take an interest in helping you.
 
All of which leads to one question: How would you survive?
 
Whatever happens, one thing's for sure: Why is it always the girls who get their hearts ripped out in these things?
 
We're back in two weeks with Welsh language horror, 'The Feast'.

Whatever happens, one thing's for sure: someday soon, I am just gonna disappear, and you won't have any idea what happened to me.
