If you’re new to the podcast then Hi, and thanks for joining us.

Here at How to Survive (as you might have guessed) we watch horror movies and talk about how we would survive if we found ourselves in them. That’s the idea anyway - as you can imagine, 120-ish films down the line we’ve gone off down some strange tangents, but you won’t find another podcast discussing the lifecycles of neolithic sponge organisms one minute and the teleporting logistics of Jason Voorhees the next.


We love horror, and if you do too, there’s plenty for you to enjoy already. All 115 mainline episodes of the podcast (plus a whole host of bonus episodes) are available to download from iTunes, each covering a film in detail and discussing what we liked, what we didn’t like and most importantly how we would survive. There’s a new episode every Wednesday and we cover all sorts of films, new & old, from horror to action to disaster movies (‘disaster’ often carrying an unfortunate double meaning).

If you think we’ve missed out a stone-cold classic - or an absolute horror show - then you can suggest a film for us to cover by emailing Why not get in touch, suggest a movie and tell us how you would survive?
