"The Way Back " is the best movie.

Hell Comes to Frogtown - last man on earth who is not firing blanks and has to save 3 princesses to repopulate. Humanities survival - is there a greater survival story??!?! HELL NO!

I Survived FROGTOWN!!! Gritty VHS desolation. Nothing but Sandahl Bergman for nourishment.

"Buried" was horrible. That's why it mostly bypassed theaters and went straight to DVD. Oh and Reynolds ruined the GL movie.

The title of this list says the "ten" best survival films and I just found a few that have higher ratings than some of the ones listed- that's all!

The lowest rated one is 72 % of Open Water!

wouldn't a survival movie mean actually surviving? the characters in open water didn't make it- so its more of a not survival movie.

The Hunted has some of the best survival tactics even if it's not one of the best movies

A rather good point, but they surivive much of the film anyway, which is better than none at all!

Doesn't the designation "survival movie" imply that the subject of the film actually survived? I could see Into the Wild being included in the top ten "Not Knowing How to Survive" list, heck, I'd even put it in the top 5 of the "Died of starvation and exposure because they were lost" genre, but it is not a "Survival Movie" per se. Also, the author needs to stop thinking that the current decade is when all the best films were made.

I loved Nicolas Roeg Walkabout, which is at 93%, The Empire Of The Sun is a very good one too, and The Lord Of The Flies, which I heard Danny Boyle dreams about remaking

I was surprised the Peter Brook version of "Lord of the Flies" missed this list. It's 100% tomato rating.
