What Are Your Best Favorite Survival Movies Or TV Series?

best-survival-movies

The best survival movies (or TV series) list is the result of a poll taken by readers on Modern Survival Blog in which hundreds of you suggested your favorite survival movies or shows.

Choosing the single best survival movie is certainly a subjective and individual choice. These might include plots of a post-apocalyptic, Armageddon or doomsday event, maybe wilderness survival or a natural or man-made disaster, a war plot, or perhaps a documentary or recounting of an actual ‘survival’ event, etc..

There are lots of movies (and a fair number of past and present TV series) which one might consider to be within a survival genre. Lets find out what your favorites are (your ‘best’ list)…


 
I’ve listed in order of popularity. Each section is alphabetized.
