Unless you're a zombie or some carnivorous monstrosity that feeds on Hypothalamus glands. If you know anything about evolutionary biology, you know why Dr. Green's (Penelope Ann Miller) initial idea to kill the creature in The Relic would have worked. Of course, we're assuming you don't.
Put your knowledge of all-things that creep, slither and crawl to the test with the only movie monster survival guide/quiz book of its kind.

What will you do when they come for you?
Live and learn. Learn and live!

but we're willing to bet it won't happen the way Victor (Johnny Depp) did it.

2. Pay no attention to the fly on our head. That's our friend, Johnny Brundle. It's the things inside that are cause for alarm. The maggot (Enn Reitel) that lived in the Corpse Bride's (Helena Bonham Carter) head usually popped out of her right eye socket. But he could have used a couple of other "emergency exits," to get out of her body, if need be, such as the hole in her cheek. What were some of the other ways he could have gotten out?

3. Who killed the Bride? The shadow knows, because he did it. The one that appeared on the wall in the tavern was clearly recognizable as Lord Barkis (Richard E. Grant). Which of the following questions wasn't answered in the song, Remains of the Day?


A. How was the Bride killed?
B. What was stolen from her?
C. What vow did she make when she passed away?
D. Where did she get the wedding dress she wore?


4. If you saw what Victor saw in the Ball and Socket tavern you'd either pass it off as a dream or a hallucination, wouldn't you? How did he try to wake himself up from that nightmare?

5. This is any easy one, we think. How did the soldier who chose to remain by his General's side end up in the Land of the Dead?

6. There were a number of living creatures in the Land of the Dead. We counted four. Name as many as you can.

7. To duplicate the performance that Bonejangles (Danny Elfman) gave, you'd have to sing in a voice that was a few octaves lower than your own, dance like your bones were falling apart and exhibit this unique skill.
Give that one a try.

8. What's more fun than a barrel of monkeys? A barrel full of severed arms, of course. How did they help the Bride in the chapter entitled Fugitive Groom?

9. Everyone's afraid of something, aren't they? How did Victoria (Emily Watson) find out about Victor's fear of the dark?

10. You can teach an old dog, new tricks, just not this one... unless it's dead. Give Victor's dog, Scraps, a holler, he'll show you.
Oh, hi kids. We'll be with you in a moment. Someone's threatening us with a dwarf. We know these questions aren't for everyone, but let's leave the vertically-challenged out of this. If you think you could lift one up off the ground without touching one, go ahead and try,

If you open your Movie Monster Survival Guide to the chapter on Re-animation and Electricity, you'll discover what it can and cannot do. We learned how to harness it by turning dead goldfish invisible. The difficult part was proving it. It didn't tell us how to do that. Can you or do we have to ask the kid with the hunch?

The Corpse Bride
(1) He lifted Napoleon Bonesapart (Deep Roy) up by the sword that was impaled through his chest. (2) He also could have gotten out through her mouth or through her ribs. If you answered through her ears or nostrils we'll accept those answers as well, but NOT the other two holes you're probably thinking of! (3) A (4) He slammed his head against the bar. (5) He died from a cannonball wound to the chest.

(6) The maggot that lived in the Bride's head, the black widow spiders, the crows, and the cockroaches that helped Paul the Head Waiter (Paul Whitehouse) move about. (7) The ability to roll an eyeball from one socket to another. (8) They pointed to where Victor went after he ran past the Second Hand Shoppe. (9) His mother mentioned it. (10) He could roll over without turning his head.
