    Hope we don’t have to do our own any time soon, but if that is the case is better to be prepared :+

    The economy will turn sour but will not be as bad as you think. US housing market only has a 15% of total US GDP. Even the whole US housing market went burst, it won't hurt that much on the entire US economy[National Scale]. The big international corporation still making profit, especially the low US dollar like a deep discount to oversea buyer.

    Government and big corporations still have a lot of money, only general worker without money.

    US is a self-consumption economic system, once the consumer lost confident and stop consumption, that is the real problem.

    Great points about our vulnerability.

    In emergency situations, it's a good idea for people at home to have a hard wired phone line and a corded phone. If power goes out, you don't want to be dependent on a cordless phone base that runs from AC. Who knows whether cell phones will be operative, especially if towers go down. Besides, just when you want to use it, your battery may go down.

    Having a battery powered weather radio is a good idea, too. The radio's batteries may not be as fickle as those of a cell phone.

    If you have a police scanner or other radio you can program to 146-148 MHz., you can listen to weather spotter nets from local ham radio operators, who often do an excellent job of coverage.

    ronald regan quote is dead right

    • Jonathan (Sweden) January 14, 2010 at 12:08 am #

      William Barentine, you wrote this about the mexicans: "money is the force that they appreciate…", what makes them any more dangerous than the americans? after all you are the ones who killed thousands of innocent iraqis just to knock off a few cent on your gasoline costs :P if the mexicans do invade you, i think the rest of the world would look the other way ^^ cheers

      • William Barentine January 16, 2010 at 5:09 am #

        Someone once asked me why we went to Iraq…
        All I could muster was: that we had to bomb somebody to retaliate, for 911.
        Could be worse…
        We could have bombed Canada and blamed them for our weakness at our southern border!
        If those in "charge" had any cajones, we'd not have the problems we all face today.
        In all honesty, at one time I was inclined to agree with you, but not today.
        Oil and Gas prices and everything associated with transportation costs have steadily gone up….
        Lumber, steel, feed, and food!
        Why the war happened, who caused it, is not for me to say or debate, as I will never be privy to the facts, only lies and propoganda. Only the drug cartels and their minions would ever attempt such a thing, and they are vastly outnumbered today…Just by the civilian population alone. ( forget the leo's and military!)
        BUT, there are at least 203+ cities in this country that have drug cartels in them, and I have yet to see one agency do much in regards to it!

    • Kesten January 28, 2010 at 4:51 pm #

      I’ll have to check that movie out and I’m not surprised with the things that go on with the border patrol these days.

  5. Jexx July 18, 2008 at 12:20 pm #

    Number 6 is a mistake. The image is tha of Mad Max 2- The Road Warrior. Mad Max is not so much a post apocalyptic film, as PRE-apocalytic with the break down in society and all.

  6. Survival Podcast August 7, 2008 at 4:48 am #

    Excellent post! The need for planning is so essential and to involve all parties more so. Many times a family has only one member that takes such things seriously, that is why I put so much emphasis on documentation of planning, contact numbers, etc.

    When you document everything in print and make sure everyone has it then even the family members that seem to think there is nothing to worry about will know what to do when something goes wrong.

    Note I said when, not if, something will always go wrong it is just a matter of when and how bad. Some problems are small, some pretty big and the potential for a true SHTF is always out there.

  7. ermerald March 28, 2009 at 8:09 pm #

    iam looking for a movie its about this family that their dad is a prisoner and the ship wrecks from a storm and the famiy ands up n an island alone. years past and theyv adopted to the island so they build a house and everything if you have any idea please let me know my e-mail is [email protected] thanks

    • leslol April 13, 2009 at 12:20 am #

      That sounds alot like 'Swiss Family Robinson'.

  8. Che Wiafe April 15, 2009 at 3:54 pm #

    28 days later should have replaced I am legend

    • Malvarius August 25, 2009 at 3:33 am #

      Loved that movie. 28 weeks later was pretty good too! Had some Holy S moments

  9. Survivalspot April 15, 2009 at 5:24 pm #

    28 Days later was a great movie, I love the shopping spree scene.

  10. kstover May 1, 2009 at 4:11 am #

    Great post. While I do agree that 28 days later should most definately be on the list, the fact that 7 out of the 10 movies were favorites of mine before i "realized" i was a survivalist is really telling. Keep it up!

  11. Randyn May 1, 2009 at 5:01 am #

    Hey what about Ever Since the World Ended?? There are some good flicks here (12 Monkeys, Red Dawn, the Postman) but ESTWE has them hands down. Check it out on YouTube and then do your survivaling soul a big favour and watch this!

  12. Crash May 15, 2009 at 2:40 am #

    ive always enjoyed Damnation alley, and the Omega Man

  13. Timothy Cahill June 1, 2009 at 8:15 pm #

    "Why does Red Dawn get our vote for number one survivalist movie? Well because of the realistic plot…"

    Come on.
    Soviet Armed Forces never ever in history had the force projection capabilities to launch, let alone sustain, an invasion of North America. Their surface blue water reach was virtually nil, a global theater in which the USA is still the undisputed hegemon. They had no ability to ship and defend Forces and Supplies across oceans then land against NATO opposition. They barely had the capacity to take and hold Afghanistan, and that was right across their border. In contrast, at the same time, the US could have easily taken and held Mexico AND Canada against strong local resistance. (I know. I'm Canadian). Driving, by land, across the North German Plain was always the maximum capability of East Block military abilities.

    I grew up in a town at the head of a deep-water inlet on the Pacific West Coast. When I was a teen, my pals and I used to drill, using the Improvised Munitions Handbook, scenarios for local resistance to a combined Chinese-Russian Amphibian landing. We knew that a couple of well place munitions would have bottled their forces up on the beach. Stuck there, they would have been defenseless against NORAD air strikes. No contest.

    Nuisance raids on North America? Sure, but only of expendable and disposable forces. Red Dawn was about as realistic as Elmo, Barney and the Teletubbies.

    Also: You've forgotten "The day of the Triffids".

    • Survivalspot June 1, 2009 at 8:44 pm #

      Good point Timothy. I think we meant was "realistic" compared to the other videos. Zombies, time travel etc. are very unrealistic and so Red Dawn at least contains certain elements of reality. Plus it showed that survival in the wilderness was rough and that in war there are casualties.

  14. bane June 19, 2009 at 8:46 am #

    Crap. Waterworld is a boring move that lasts too long. 12 monkeys? Its mind boggling SF where you have to take notes just to follow whats going on, no survival anywhere. A good movie dough. Postman ? Check Waterworld and multiply it by 10, its a c-r-a-p. Red Dawn? Come on. We are not 12yrs old, spare us cheap politics and stereotypes.

    Anything near survivalism worth watching are here are:
    1. Tremors
    2. Deliverance (man, this one can be disturbing, don't traumatize your kids)
    3. Dawn of the Dead
    4. Mad Max (must see, keep small kids away!)
    … and finally, not really a survivalism but a classic that is worth seeing zillion times:
    5. Terminator 2

  15. capjclark July 6, 2009 at 4:41 am #

    I think that the movie "THE EDGE" is a fine example of a survival situation. I lived in Alaska for some 20 years and can relate to the situation in the movie. The analitical mind wins and that is the truth. I was actively involved in USCG search & rescue in Alaska for many years and being of a survivalist mind set I can attest to the skills displayed in the movie.

    • dave September 15, 2009 at 9:54 am #

      Excellent!…I’m glad to see others comment on the skills displayed on “The Edge”.

  16. Mike July 7, 2009 at 9:47 pm #

    JERIMIAH JOHNSON WITH ROBERT REDFORD!!

  17. Don July 19, 2009 at 2:54 am #

    The CBS Series "Jericho" should have made the list. Probably the most realistic background of any TV show or movie made so far.

    BTW, love Red Dawn. I remember seeing it several times when it came out at the Movies…after taking two dates to the show, I stopped taking them and went by myself so I could watch it in peace!

  18. Stan July 20, 2009 at 10:23 pm #

    There was an old BBC series called "Survivor", an English version of post-apocolistic plauge enviroment, played on some PBS stations in the mid-eighties. Very realistic scenarios, food scrounging, packs of dogs running wild, re-developing markets/barter, some friendly communities and some undesireable travellers, replanting and learning to deal with animal husbandry. I remember the most needed skills were medical(doctors needed to be protected), electrical, machinists.
    Thought provoking with enlightening moments.

  19. Fred August 3, 2009 at 2:44 am #

    I can't believe no one has mentioned the movie "Snow Walker". The story of an Alaskan bush pilot and young eskimo girl that survived a plane crash in the Alaskan outback…. GREAT MOVIE !!!! Free to watch over the the internet but I forgot which site…I believe it was on YouTube.com in the "shows" section.

  20. Todd August 12, 2009 at 5:27 pm #

    Glad I stumbled on this list! I have ever one but 12 Monkeys! I`ll have to get that one sounds like it's good based on reviews here and on amazon.

    thanks!

  21. Todd August 12, 2009 at 5:28 pm #

    Fred – I agree Snow Walker is an AWESOME movie! I have that on DVD too, and it's WELL worth the purchase.

    I also like "Alone in the Wilderness" documentary… not a "movie" but def. about survival, and being alone.

  22. ~~HA~~ August 24, 2009 at 6:34 pm #

    Good list. I would have put night of the living dead in there somewhere because I so very much enjoy human interaction within a survival type environment.

    And Stan, there is a remake of the BBC Survivors series that came out in 2008, which you might enjoy. It is quite similar with a flu virus killing 99% of the population leaving the rest to "survive" out by themselves.

    You may also like Day of the Triffids. It is a short series made by the BBC which has a similar survival theme. Basically, most of the world goes blind and the survivors are left to remake society, all while avoiding man eating walking plants (sounds silly, but it is remarkably well done).

  23. bunky September 5, 2009 at 4:58 am #

    i know it might sound childish but theres alot you can learn from "The Wilderness Family" i know thats the way i would want to live but there are really no more places you can do this…….. but again red dawn, deliverance, and tremors are great movies i dont get into to much of the futuristic stuff……also the hills have eyes and wrong turn have some survival aspects to them

  24. bunky September 7, 2009 at 2:29 am #

    or even "Into the Wild"

  25. Kris September 13, 2009 at 1:32 am #

    WORST MOVIE OF ALL TIME (that I've seen) AND IT HAPPENS TO BE ABOUT SURVIVAL.

    Anyone seen "The Survivalist?"….Steve Railsback. 1987. This POS is the worst acted, worst written, worst edited, WORST EVERYTHING!

    I bought it on eBay and actually watched it all the way through so I could say I saw the worst movie in the history of movies!!!……HAHAHAHHAH.

  26. bunky September 17, 2009 at 2:05 pm #

    it all depends on what kind of survival we're talkin about here but "The Day After" is about aftermath of nuclear war then you have "The Day After Tomorrow" and "Deep Impact" are all good movies that have to do with survival.

  27. Texas Tornado September 20, 2009 at 8:45 pm #

    Out of all of these posts not one of you even mentioned one of the best survival films I believe there was “Cast Away” Tom hanks does a great job in portraying a man surviving on a deserted island after his fedex plain crashes in the ocean. This deals with all realistic elements such as being alone, having to adapt to your surroundings and learn how to literally survive the elements and situation. This one by far has my thimbs up!!!

  28. Kelli Garner September 25, 2009 at 4:28 pm #

    Thats very good to know… thanks

  29. josh fleshman September 29, 2009 at 10:19 am #

    yea cast away is awesome! i remember watching my side of the mountain when i was a kid and have enjoyed watching similar flicks since. im sure all of us have alittle robinson crusoe in us at one time or another.

  30. Ron October 5, 2009 at 4:51 pm #

    The Great Escape is a great film that should be added to that list.

  31. Amy October 25, 2009 at 10:38 am #

    Rambo taught me more about survival than Terminator and Waterworld. These aren't survival movies so much as doomsday movies.

  32. Lynds January 7, 2010 at 6:27 am #

    what about 28 Days Later

  33. Jarhead Jon January 11, 2010 at 2:04 am #

    Waterworld sucks ass. I can't believe that it even gets a mention. Terminator II? More crap.
    What about Jeremiah Johnson, Death Hunt, The Flight of the Phoenix (original) , or Defiance?

  34. @liquastowilly January 14, 2010 at 10:56 pm #

    Madmax rambo deawn of the dead 28 days later The boondock saints (crime scenes)

  35. Don January 24, 2010 at 3:42 am #

    It's an old one, but how about Panic in Year Zero. Watch it if you ever get the chance. Also The Mountain Men with
    Charelton Heston.

  36. Kesten January 28, 2010 at 4:45 pm #

    I liked “I AM LEGEND and 28 DAYS LATER”

  37. virginia February 4, 2010 at 6:34 am #

    Hey everybody, you better start thinking about your own survival now because things are going to get a lot worse with the economy, unemployment and
    with very high taxes to come. Those who pray, plan, prepare, conserve, recycle and become more knowledgeable on many things should survive, but
    I feel the most valuable resources is water, food,
    shelter, guns, ammo and antibiotics. You cannot count on others or the government. Your survival is in your own hands. Don’t ever forget that! Do something about it now before it is too late, I am doing what I can every week buying and stocking up on what I can.
    Research all that you can online and compare prices everywhere and be diligent about it.
    Don’t have most of your money in the bank, have cash on hand in bills $20 and less and change.
    Plus pay off all debts and cut up those credit cards!, so they don’t bankrupt you. They say on many on tv news shows that our countries debt now is over 3 trillion dollars and next year it will be 8 – 9 trillion dollars. Us tax payers
    many will go broke paying for it all.
    That’s what more government does and tries to control the people more and more till they lose all their rights and freedoms.
    You all be good now and take care.

      and Cast Away.

  38. Arcane Radio February 16, 2010 at 12:54 pm #

    A personal favorite of mine has always been Robinson Crusoe on Mars. A very dated but accurate for it’s day. Imagine the survival skills needed to if you are all alone and stranded on Mars.

  39. Bruce Jones March 10, 2010 at 11:30 pm #

    Has anyone read "One Second After" by William R. Forstchen? He makes some very well researched projections about what would happen after a serious crippling event in the US. In "story form" he provides realiatic projections regarding food, restoring local transportation, closed community formation and structure, self-defence, and probable violence. Being aware of, and preparing for, the major, predictable "waves" of events that will follow the breakdown of government and shipping, will be a powerful tool of survival when things fall apart. The book should give us all pause for thought.

    • tom July 10, 2013 at 1:08 pm #

      That's an excellent book, very dark, but his description of the breakdown of society was realistic in my view. Most people couldn't begin to imagine just how fragile modern society is, how much one system depends on another system, and how a catastrophic failure in one or more for any sustained period would result in a domino effect throwing society into havoc and anarchy.

      Highly recommend one second after, well written and compelling book.

  40. The Dude April 24, 2010 at 5:01 am #

    lol Red Dawn realistic

  41. bobblehead May 6, 2010 at 7:29 pm #

    28 days later is very good one. i like survival type movie very much.

  42. ZombieRN June 24, 2010 at 10:30 pm #

    so what about Defiance? i agree that 28 days later should be on the list, as well as Dawn of the Dead (the original of course), but another interesting one to consider might be Zombieland. I mean, come on… if Waterworld made it, we are clearly not dealing with realistic situations.

  43. Menthol June 29, 2010 at 1:26 pm #

    Where the hell is Cast Away on this list? That's more realistically "survival" than the rest of these movies.

  44. Dawn-er Party July 26, 2010 at 10:07 pm #

    Red Dawn is one of my all time favorite movies! Unrealistic… yes. But I have great childhood memories of watching that show and then playing "army" with my friends. My wife just told me last night that it was one of the worst shows she has ever seen. After telling her it was one of my faves we both laughed and teased each other about our choice of movies. 28 Days Later and Dawn of the Dead are also great!

  45. gem777 August 7, 2010 at 4:52 pm #

    apocalypto is the best survival movie i think. :)

  46. cat60 August 24, 2010 at 3:38 pm #

    Mayhem as an exotic oil eating microbe that has infected the fuel supply and society falls apart,fast! Only a book by R. scott Reiss called "Black Monday" End of life as you know it!!

  47. Bitsy September 3, 2010 at 1:19 pm #

    The Edge with Anthony Hopkins and Alec Baldwin is a fave survival movie of mine.

  48. vacha September 9, 2010 at 2:43 am #

    yes The Edge is very good movie of survival

  49. BushCrafter September 24, 2010 at 9:42 am #

    Don't forget " The Hunted"

    This is a poor list….off the top of my head I would add THE ROAD and 28 WEEKS LATER before even putting waterworld on this list. God whoever wrote this better of not gotten paid for it….

    The Road, Alive, Into the Wild… much better; and none of them listed. I do have a soft spot in my heart for Red Dawn. If you want a maniac trying to kill you and you are outsmarting them (for awhile) type movie, try No Country for old men.

    Ok if all the trees and plants were dead in that movie how in the hell were humans still breathing? I'm not saying I'm just saying.

    I ordered it, recieved it, picked it up when it arrived and could not put it down once I started reading practically. I read it in two days. Very entertaining, and excellent book in my opinion. Thought provoking for sure, and the author really made me visualize what was going on in the story. I recommend it to all of my friends yet not on ehas read it yet, Ha ha. Several say they want to but they don't read period. I wish it would be made into a feature film. Ben in Northern CA

    I concur…First Blood is an absolute classic. I ran into this commentary section out of a fluke. How about Jeremiah Johnson, folks? 127 Hours? The Edge? These are bona fide survival themes.
