How to Survive
About This Show
'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.

How to Survive: The Mist (2007)
3 days ago
It's episode 97... and another mist opportunity... The Mist (2007) tells the story of David, a family man whose world is turned upside down when he and his son (and a bunch of townsfolk) are forced to shelter in a supermarket when a thick mist descends on their town. This is no straightforward weather problem, as hidden within the mist are all manner of violent and disgusting monsters - and they seem intent on killing everyone in the supermarket. We discuss how the importance of quickly killing everyone in your family weighed against the merits of not killing anyone in your family; the most effective way to convert someone away from dogmatic religion; and the benefits of keeping your mouth shut when confronted with an angry mob. All of which leads to one question... How would you survive? Whatever happens, one thing's for sure... As a species we're fundamentally insane. Put more than two of us in a room, we pick sides and start dreaming up reasons to kill one another. Why do you think we invented politics and religion? Another classic film solved by the best movie podcast in the world.
