Another good one is "Trigger Effect" with Elizabeth Shue, Kyle MacLachlan, and Dermot Mulroney. Lots of layers.

You must be referring to engine/transmission computers. Dont forget in 1974/75 most autos went to solid state electronic ignition (AKA Transistors) and an EMP would destroy a solid state ignition module which would completely disable the auto. So just because the car is running a carburetor doesnt mean its immune to an EMP.

You're right. I was never much for Elizabeth Shue, but I was drooling through that whole movie. She was gorgeous in that.

Thanks for the recommendation.

"The Domestics" is an ok movie. Don't spend any money on it, wait until you can see it for free. Millennials surviving shtf, felt like I watched scenes from The Purge, Book of Eli, Beyond the Thunderdome, War of the Worlds, TWD, etc combined into one.

"The Road" and "28 Days Later" are top of the list for me. "Cherry 2000" was pretty good too. Watched it 30 years ago and still remember every scene.

"These Final Hours" hasn't been mentioned yet, but worth a look.

I'll check out "These Final Days", I've seen the other two. I looked for it, are you it isn't "These Final Hours"? I just watched that one, pretty good.

I could see the The Domestics being like that, definitely waiting for free on demand to watch it. "How It Ends" looks pretty promising though.

Watched the movie " Threads" last night. It was the more realistic of many of these types of movies. Not as entertaining, but more realistic.
The closest this nation came to a similar situation was during the 6 day War between Israel, Egypt and Syria and other allies. Israel had to cross the Suez into Egypt to dig out Soviet supplied anti-aircraft batteries. The Soviet Union assembled airborne forces with the stated intent of dropping those forces onto the Israeli army which had surrounded the belt of Egyptian air defence forces. Nixon warned the Soviets that such a move would be followed by the 82nd Airborne Division being drooped onto the Russian forces. Prior to that the 1969 border war between China and Russia (which let shortly afterwards to the recognition of China by the US) was a close one when the invasion of Western China by the Soviet Union was within 48 hours of happening - preceeded by a tactical nuclear missile barrage by the Russians who had assembled 400 tactical nuclear missiles on the border with China.
Scary stuff ............... now part of history - a history that due to strong leadership by the US thwarted nuclear conflicts.

The Survivor Family - Japan gets hit with an EMP. Probably one of the better movies of that type.

Yep. A good, fairly realistic SHTF movie AND she is super hot in it. A good watch. I still have it kicking around here on VHS somewhere...

wow so many zombie movies mentioned i can not believe not a single person has gave anykind of honorable mention, dawn of the dead- all of them. every george a romaro movie. the classic night of the living dead movies being my favorite. i watch it atleast once every single halloween every year.my own tradition i started.


ALL HAILZ GEORGE ROMARO, THE KING OF UNDEAD ZOMBIE MOVIES!!!


no but seriously
i would list some sci-fi horror movies but,,,meh you know what? what the heck.


here goes : Extraterrestrial (2014)

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2960930/?ref_=tt_urv

i know some of the tin foil hat users on here always talking about ufos will really like this one ^^^ pretty much a movie about people trying to avoid being abducted by aliens and trying to survive.

anyhow i enjoyed those movies to say the least. not sure how informal or educational they will be, but after the movie about ETS and disrupting electricity and solar flares, i decided having glowsticks was a must to keep on hand incase something FUBARS all electrical power sources.

I agree with you on The Domestics. Watched it last weekend and was somewhat disappointed. The action was ok but the main couple, I felt, were portrayed as weak SJWs. Didnít do common sense stuff to help stay ďunder the radar.Ē Very much like The Purge.

Another Netflix original movie "Extinction" coming out in a couple weeks looks like it may be okay. We'll see.

Extinction was a decent flick. I’m half way thru how it ends and it’s good so far. Lunch break over so I’ll finish it later.

I watched both last week or so ago. Extinction was decent with an interesting story line. How It Ends left so many unanswered questions that it made me think it was gonna be a series.

I need to update the list, I watched allot in the past month, just trying to remember what they were.

I wish we could put these movies into grade levels... some B grade and worse are just not fit to / can't watch. Not that I'm remarking on any particulars here...

example: the Road A grade... not a lot of SHTF skills to glean....but dark as hell sad.

can anyone recoment the next 5 grade A's?

The Book Of Eli is in that same category. Unfortunately I think that's about it. I take it back, the original Red Dawn definitely is in there.

For me, I enjoy those "B" movies out there. This is kinda what this thread is all about, the lesser known or more obscure or forgotten titles that some may enjoy. The obvious ones are just that.

List updated with some new ones at the bottom.

Seriously? I thought it sucked. Was disappointed cause I was looking forward to it. The movie had no fucking ending and a random as fuck last act. 5/10.

This one will be controversial, but ...

The Handmaids Tale (TV Series, 2 seasons, Hulu).

It has a steady diet of purposeful anti-Christian digs, but it is dang near a CASE STUDY on why the second amendment is needed, even by liberals.

It basically is a nightmare for liberal women (and everyone for that matter as USA becomes a theocratic authoritarian dictatorship).

But that nightmare, and its realistic depiction of massive oppression of women, might, maybe, hopefully, will win a few people over to the second.

Also, eating one of their own, Feminists recently raked the author of the book upon which the show is based, the aging Margaret Mead, over the coals for daring to express doubts about the excesses of the #metoo movement. Hee hee.

***

The Final Hours or Last Hours, was good, but trigger warning LOL (or maybe an Ad for some members) about a fairly explicit orgy scene. It is realistic though given that many have no faith I guess.

Just watched this. Agreed, decent flick. Its easy to criticize some of the dumb decisions, but its a movie, not a tutorial.

After armageddon is a good one. Has narration and "expert" opinion thrown about here and there.

I think this movie came out on TLC or the discovery channel or something of that nature in the early 2000's. Kinda cheesy but it did enough to get people think of some sort of prepping after it came out.

I cannot find a quality hd link... you'll just have use this.

Thanks for the recommendation.
Respectfully disagree, that movie was garbage to me. Within the span of an hour, the girl goes from wimp to badass, avoids getting shot by gangsters because their *mother* tells them not to, meets a catholic priest willing to commit the sin of suicide, and by the end helps to overcome an entrenched military unit with a mob armed with a smattering of pistols and shotguns - the ending is almost literally an Antifa fantasy.

Not to mention the soldier they interrogate mentions the basic premise of the movie, that Texas wanted to secede, and did so by drafting a coalition of racists from the south to invade NY state on their first day. Living in the south myself as a minority, the thought that you'd find enough racists in the entire country to fill a new Confederate army makes me laugh, until I realized that this is how people in NYC and Hollywood must see us.

Difficult to find but "Miracle Mile" is one of my all time favorites. Starts out slow and boring but accelerates well. A guy answers a random call at a phone booth outside a diner late at night. Kid on the other end works in a silo out in the prairie. Kid announces USSR launched missiles a few minutes ago, we, ( the USA) have responded. Society breaks down and targets destroyed. No happy ending! The End!
Cool flik IMHO
