My list of the best SHTF and TEOTWAWKI Movies for preppers

Best SHTF and TWOTWAWKI MoviesThis is a list of the best SHTF movies I can find but the list will be continually updated. This is basically a list of movies I think preppers would like and involve survival, the post-apocalypse, the collapse of the government or TEOTWAWKI.

The cool thing about these movies is that they’re not only good entertainment (some of them anyway), you can usually pick up a tip or two on how to survive if SHTF. A couple of them suck as far as movies go but they’re useful in their own way.

Here’s a hand-picked list of movies I’ve found so far, augmented by other movies in the same genre. You’ll find something you like…

About graywolf

I am a military veteran who has deployed to combat theaters in Africa, Iraq and Afghanistan and have almost three decades of military and military contracting experience.

My goal is to help preppers and others understand how to intelligently protect their family and their way of life.


  1. Jericho ~ 2006-2008 CBS TV series.

  2. The Day After has got nothing on Threads from the UK. I think you can find the full film on YouTube. I don’t think it is out on video.

  3. Doesn’t anyone remember “The Trigger Effect”? It came out in 1996. It was my first exposure to the reality of how fast civilized people deteriorate after an EMP event. Here is a link to the snyopsis.
