    Question : on the old site about 2 years ago someone posted a you tube vid about a family that had prepared-generater, food , weapon etc. When the collapse occured they were constantly fighting off the neighbors.

    They eventually boarded up their house like a fortress, wouldn't let their daughter go out, were paranoid because of so many attacks and thefts.

    Anybody know where that video might be?

    Did you ever find out what this was?
    Is this it? Memoirs of a Survivor
    On IMDB at http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0082733/

    Memoirs of a Survivor (1981) More at IMDbPro »
    'D' is a chronicler of a society in chaos, who looks down on the marauding gangs, and rubbish-strewn streets from the fortress prison of her flat. Buffeted by inner dreams and longings, D finds an alternative world by stepping through the wall of her flat, like Alice through the Looking Glass. Here it is Victorian England, the bosom of an unsettled family, harbingers, perhaps, of the decay to come. She flits between the two sides of her double life, always observing, never participating, and watches as her protégé, Emily, becomes involved with vagrants' leader Gerald and their efforts to control the violent scavengers fail.

    No I haven't. I don't think it was Memoirs of a Survivor. I think it was made since 911. The setting was in the Suburbs. It was about a guy who had been preping, but when tshtf everyone he had tried to recruit to be prepared and help each other turned against him and started taking his stuff. He and his family (wife and daughter) were very paranoid in the movie. It was a good example of how bad it can get with neighbors you thought were your friends

    If I remember right someone had found it posted on a survival website.

    thanks guys

    Your description sounds a lot like the Twilight Zone episode that was posted a few weeks ago. A doctor had a bomb shelter stocked with stuff for his family. All the neighbors made fun of him until there was an alert that ICBM missiles were on the way. Then all the neighbors demanded to share his preps, and they broke into his shelter to get the stuff.

    GOLDZILLA YOU RULE! I bow down to your superior "Video Search" skills.

    I also found "After Armagedon" a History Channel - Family luckily survives deadly pandemic and must abandon L.A. Youtube has all of the episodes.

    Hot Damn Godzilla, that's it. Where'd you ever find it??

    Having watched it again it is a little melodramatic, but it does make a point. We shouldn't worry, FEMA will be coming soon.

    I could not have blocked the spontaneous thoughts about Avalon, even if I tried too, is that really you Av?

    Great info. Thank you.GZ, there is a person that knows her stuff. I do wish ALL NURSES were likewise compassionate.

    Several ways to avoid "sharing" your preps during an emergency:

    1. Tell no one you have preps. Children & teenagers will tell, so they need to be kept in the dark and/or told not to tell.

    2. Tell people you are sick (flu, etc.). This may keep them away.

    3. If any band of mauranders come around, lock-n-load.

    4. Put up signs like during Katrina: "You loot, we shoot" or similar "notices".
