Halloween Horror Quiz
October 31, 2014 by fandangogroovers
On last weeks “wittertainment” it was suggested that audiences at screenings of Annabelle have particularly poorly behaved. This mainly consists of talking, using mobile phones and generally anoying other patrons. Mark Kermode puts this down to the recent trend of “quiet, quiet, LOUD” films that are attracting none horror fans. This resulted in a listener suggesting there should be “Horror Fan Only Screenings” and to attend you must answer a quiz to prove your horror credentials. I thought as a bit of fun for Halloween I would set such a quiz. The questions are intentionally not obscure or too difficult.
Name the priest played by Max von Sydow in The Exorcist (1973).
In Nosferatu (1922), how does Orlok die and what is significant about this in relation to the source material (Dracula – Bram Stoker 1897) and previous vampire films.
Alfred Hitchcock is reported as saying “33% of the effect of Psycho (1960) was due to the music”, who composed it?
What is the Hotel in The Shining (1980) called?
With which director would you associate this car? (1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88):
Who is the killer in Friday the 13th (1980)?
Name the ship and the planet from Alien (1979).
Who played the monster in Frankenstein (1931) and how was he credited?
Most of the soundtrack music for George A. Romero’s Dawn of the Dead (1978) was composed by a film director. Name him.
In Zombieland (2009), Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) has 32 rules for survival, ten of which are identified in the film. Name three of them.
Feel free to answer the questions or suggest some of your own.
