A couple of things…
First of all – Happy New Year! Wishing all you preppers a happy and SAFE New Years from the guys here at SHTFblog! If you do decide to sample some of the home brew you’ve got down in the cellar just make sure you don’t drive afterwards. The cops frown on it.
Seriously, if you’re the partying type be smart and have a designated driver.
I was looking around the web the other day and came across a link at whenshtf.com (a survival forum) that looked interesting. Looks like there’s a new SHTF movie coming soon and if the trailers are any indicator it could be pretty good. Here’s the site:
And here’s the trailer:
Plot Summary of Remnants
A rare astronomical event causes a permanent worldwide black out, forcing residents of a middle-class suburb to get by with no modern conveniences.
The community pulls together and adapts to a simpler way of life, but their success draws the attention of the less resourceful residents in the area and soon results in a war between subdivisions.
This is their story.
Now here’s the interesting thing. As I watched the trailer it reminded me of the online book Light’s Out by Halffast. The biggest difference is that in Light’s Out the EMP is caused by terrorist nukes and in the movie it’s caused by an exploding star. Other than that the plot to Remnants sounds similar.
Regardless, it looks like a good movie and I can’t wait until it comes out, if it comes out. They’re on a tight budget and they’re looking for sponsors. The way I understand it is they’re trying to bypass all the Hollywood BS and do it on a small budget. I’m not suggesting you donate, but they do have a page here that asks for financial help.
Check out this trailer called Merle’s basement from the same movie. Apparently he’s a survivalist living in the neighborhood and when TSHTF he’s ready for it. This is a pretty cool scene and one of the things he says is (paraphrasing) “If I’m walking around fat and sassy and you guys are all skinny you’re gonna come banging on my door. And I ain’t got enough bullets for all of you.”
Sound familiar? I wrote that exact same thing in this post! (Except the bullets part. I do have enough.) And I swear I wrote that before seeing this trailer, but it’s always good to get a little backup on something I’ve written ya know?
Check it out.
We’ll be back next year with more great posts. Have a great weekend and Happy New Year.
BTW: Just in case you skipped RM’s BTW yesterday about the Coronal Mass Ejections I’m reposting it today due to the nature of the movie Remnants. Are you prepared?
