Hollywood and the movies that come out of it can tend to be a bit sensational, particularly when it comes to scenarios like survival. However, while most movies should be taken with a grain of salt, they still act as a source of inspiration, escape and of course entertainment. And while there are many more survival movies that should be noted, here are Teotwawki Connect’s favorite survival movies that demonstrate a good range of possible survival situations. On with the show!

5 - Red Dawn - Capitalizing on Cold War Fears, 1984’s Red Dawn stars some of the 80’s greats like Patrick Swayze, Charlie Sheen, Lea Thompson and Jennifer Gray. Red Dawn poses the hypothetical scenario of a Communist invasion of the United States and the resistance of a group of Colorado high school students. While this plot never took place in reality, it demonstrates the power behind the use of guerilla tactics when the worst comes to worst.

4 - Castaway - With a slew of island based survival entertainment such as television’s Survivor and Lost, Castaway forces the survivalist out of Tom Hanks when a plane crash puts him on a remote island with no sight of rescue. At times Castaway can almost feel like a caricature of survival, however this movie does shine light on more of the mental aspects of survival. Tom Hank’s character finds great victory and a morale booster in creating fire. Hank’s best friend Wilson shows how important it is to have some sort of social interaction, even if that interaction is imaginary. Finally, when Hank’s is rescued he revels in the appreciation of creature comforts like electricity.

3 - Into The Wild - It is the dream of most survivalist to sell all your material objects, throw on a backpack with supplies and set off for the simpler life off the grid. The movie, Into The Wild, is based on true accounts of Christopher McCandless, a young man who did just this. Into the Wild is a tragic yet intriguing story that demonstrates the risk involved with living off the land. Dangerous situations can arise where survival can become a gamble. McCandless in a desperate attempt for food gathering makes the mistake of eating a poisonous plants that look similar to those that are, with deadly results.

2 - Alive - There are countless numbers of heroic, tragic and plain amazing tales of mountain climbers and crash survivors who have escaped brushes with death high up on the slopes. However, there is one movie that stands out, Alive. Alive recounts the true story of a group of plane crash survivors high in the Andes. This movie is a great example of two survival principles; the need to survive will come when you least expect it and when that need does come, you will have to be able to adapt to the situation at a moment’s notice. Well, this movie also teaches us that if you are really, really, really hungry, frozen human thigh, kind of tastes like turkey jerky!

1 - Rambo - First Blood - When you think of Rambo, you get images of Stallone with his red head band, ripped muscles and deadly accuracy with a bow and various arrows. However, the slightly toned down original Rambo movie, First Blood, has been the inspiration of many Survivalist! This movie has the strong sentiment of not rolling over to the powers that be and heading into the hills when the SHTF. Rambo inspires by using all of the most important survival skills such as ingenuity, self-defense and self-reliance. While it is definitely not a good idea to take on the local police force up in the hills, it is always fun to imagine “what if.”
