“10 Cloverfield Lane”
The thriller with John Goodman, rated PG-13, centers on a young woman who, after a car crash, is held captive by a doomsday prepper. He tells her the outside world is uninhabitable due to a chemical attack. She eventually decides the fate that awaits her above ground is better than dealing with what’s happening in the bunker.
My Friend Christopher Mangan recommended it to me
You might call this movie a “Preppers Nightmare” as it involves an Underground Shelter which has almost practically everything you would need to survive underground for about a year or two.
The “Nightmare” is the portrayal of Actor John Goodman’s character, Howard. By the way, his portrayal in the movie is excellent, along with Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s character of Michelle, and John Gallagher, Jr.’s character of Emmett.
The title of the movie, now on Blu-Ray with DVD enclosed is “10 Cloverfield Lane” and it is directed by J.J. Abrams, and the fantastic music score is done by Bear McCreary.
I had to ask him if this movie had any zombies in it…
No, no Zombies! The ending is a surprise as to who or what the attackers are, and no it’s not scary. It is suspenseful and it is character-driven. Again, excellent performances. I saw it four or more times in the movies and I had to get the Blu-Ray, which I picked up the other day. The Soundtrack reminds me of Bernard Herrman’s music scores for some of Alfred Hitchcock’s movies, such as Vertigo, Psycho, North By Northwest, etc.

Jericho – (WATCHED, FANTASTIC!) This series follows the residents of a small town in Kansas after the largest cities in the United States have been destroyed by nuclear missiles.

The Colony – This reality show follows 10 volunteers with various skills and backgrounds who are placed in a simulated post-apocalyptic environment and asked to rebuild civilization. Although it’s pretty entertaining, unless you’re a complete newbie prepper you may find yourself yelling at the TV.
Alaska: The Last Frontier – This reality show stars the Kilchers, a large family of homesteaders who live off the grid without any modern conveniences.

They hunt, fish, raise livestock, deal with predators, can food, gather supplies, build the things they need, and do pretty much everything else a homesteader does.
Survivorman – Probably one of the best survival shows ever. Filmmaker and survival expert Les Stroud ventures into the wilderness completely alone with just a few supplies and his camera. Although there is a support team monitoring him from a distance, he manages to survive on his own for at least a week and teaches viewers exactly how he does it.
Dual Survival – The first two seasons star survival experts Dave Canterbury and Cody Lundin (they are replaced in seasons 3 and 4, respectively) in various predetermined situations such as marooned on an island, stranded on a mountain, or lost in the woods.
