How to Survive

A TV, Film and Comedy podcast
Good podcast? Give it some love!
'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: Macbeth (2015)
How to Survive is on Patreon! Support us at  It's episode 214...and don't let 'I dare not' wait upon 'I would' Macbeth (2015) tells the story of Macbeth. After hearing from some witches that he will be king, Macbeth decides to take matters into his own hands to move things along. Assisted by his wife, they kill the current king - but not everyone is happy about it. In fact nobody is happy about it. Especially Macbeth. This is one of the most visually spectacular movies you'll ever see, and we discuss its merits as an adaptation; it's use as a teaching aid; and compare it with other versions. Alongside some tips in guilt management, you'll hear our thoughts on keeping a cool head during a crime; and keeping the central heating bill down. All of which leads to one important question: How would you survive? Whatever happens, one thing's for sure: Was the hope drunk, Wherein you dress'd yourself?  Next week, it's four hours of fun with Kenneth Branagh and Hamlet (1996). Get in touch!

How to Survive: Terminator: Dark Fate (2019)
How to Survive is on Patreon! Support us at  It's episode 213...and two days ago, I had this nice simple life. And now it’s a nightmare. Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) is the latest entry in the increasingly unloved and unwanted Terminator franchise, but with Tim Miller of Deadpool fame at the helm and with ol' Jimmy Cameron lurking in the background, can Arnie and Linda Hamilton wrestle the series back into shape?  This latest entry follows Dani, who's quiet life is torn apart by the sudden arrival of Grace, an enhanced super-soldier from an unknown apocalyptic future, who seeks to save her from the relentless and cunning REV-9. We pick apart this surprisingly high-quality entry into the Terminator canon, pull back the curtain on Carl - the best creative decision since casting Arnie in the first film, ask if Hamilton is hammy or HAM, and wonder aloud what happens to all the other purposeless inter-dimensional time orphan robot assassins? All of which leads to one important question: How would you survive? Whatever happens, one thing's for sure: I can see you’re very upset. Next week it's back to the year 1606 (or 2015) with Justin Kurzel's incredible Macbeth. Get in touch! Follow us on Twitter! @HowToSurvivePod
