Don't Forget Your Breadcrumbs!
Description:

Great movies that feature scenarios where the characters are completely lost or stuck with no way out; whether it be in the woods, in a cave, or any other sort of place.
Sometimes with a added horror element like creatures or such sometimes not.
Sometimes they won’t actually be ‘lost’ per say; sometimes just a epic story of surviving everything nature can throw at them.
Enjoy!

(SUGGESTIONS FOR THIS LIST HIGHLY APPRECIATED! MSG OR POST ON MY WALL!)
