Being that it is winter; and another year is coming to an end, I thought it would be fun to create a list of Winter Themed Survival Movies that can be found streaming right now on NETFLIX.
To bring in the holiday cheer how about a movie based on real events that takes place in the Andes Mountains. “ALIVE”, tells the story of a Uruguayan soccer team that has to survive a plane crash by resorting to cannibalism.
If eating humans is not your thing than maybe you want to give “A LONELY PLACE TO DIE”, a try. This movie takes place in the gorgeous Scottish Highlands and involves a group of mountaineering friends who unwittingly become the targets of psycho kidnappers.
Maybe you are looking for something a bit darker. In that case you should check out “Cave.” In this movie three ex-soldiers reunite to explore a deadly cave but soon find a terror beyond all expectations.
Now nothing screams winter like a good mountain climbing theme. A documentary called “THE SUMMIT”, which is about the deadliest day in modern mountaineering history?
Last but not least I give you “THE FINEST HOURS.” A massive storm, a sinking ship, an ill-equipped rescue mission, is certainly a recipe for a great film. Strap yourself in because this one is taking you for a ride. If you prefer lists over all of this reading then here you are:
*Disclaimer: These are all movies that I watched on Netflix and enjoyed. As of the writing of this article they are all available to stream on Netflix.
