  • Just Here for Godzilla: This is a film about people caught in the worst conditions imaginable and surviving. It is an exploration of facing the worst and not backing down. It is an astonishing true story about the power of the human spirit to overcome any obstacle. Bring it up in a conversation and You will probably hear it described as "The film where people eat their friends".
    • Could also double as Never Live It Down. The actual scenes where they discuss, and then follow through, with the plan to eat their friends who have died only takes up about a fifth of the movie and is handled with all the sensitivity and seriousness required for such a scenario. Hearing people talk about the movie leaves one with the impression that as soon as the survivors wake up the first thing they do is slice up the dead and chow down.

  • Nightmare Fuel: The infamous cannibalism. The mere idea of being trapped in such horrible circumstances and being forced to engage in the ultimate taboo activity. The idea that you, like they, could ever be forced to have to choice between chewing the flesh of your dead friends or dying of starvation. It's almost too horrible to think about.
