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?

Gladiator
(10) Justice, fortitude and temperance (11) Yes, his devotion. (12) Commodus held his father's head against his chest. (13) He was stabbed in the neck. (14) In the city of Zucchabar. (15) Their vision was impeded by the helmets they wore. (16) Proximo gave Maximus that name.
(17) Hannibal (18) Hagen (19) Not raising one's weapon (20) He told his sister that he was afraid of the dark.

(21) He had been retired for five years. (22) The remark that Commodus made at the coliseum. He half-heartedly joked, "My history's a little hazy, but shouldn't the barbarian lose The Battle of Carthage?" (23) He wanted Gracchus reinstated. (24) He honored his friend by burying the ancestral figurines that reminded Maximus of his deceased wife (Giannina Facio) and son (Giorgio Cantarini).


The 13th Warrior
He wouldn't drink from a bowl that was full of phlegm, snot and lord knows what else.
..................................
The Emperor thought his son lacked four virtues. One was wisdom. What were the other three?
11. Ambition is an important virtue, isn't it? Commodus thought so. He was also proud of his resourcefulness and the courage he claimed to possess. Did he mention any other traits?

12. What's the best way to kill someone without leaving any incriminating marks? Commodus smothered his father to death in the chapter entitled You Will Not Be Emperor. The question is, how?

13. Maximus managed to escape from four Praetorians in the chapter entitled A Soldier's Death. What happened to the soldier that tried to execute him?

14. Where did Maximus begin his training as a gladiator?

15. The first four gladiators that were slain by Maximus shared a piece of armor or some type of weaponry that put them at a disadvantage. Watch the battle again and tell us if you agree.

16. Maximus fought under the name of The Spaniard. Where did that moniker come from?

17. Where would you go if you could travel back in time? Rome circa 180 A.D. would be a good place to
start. Of all the games that were staged in the coliseum, none were more spectacular than The Battle of Carthage which pitted the warriors of this general against the legionaries of Sipio Africanus.

18. In the second fall of Carthage, a female warrior was sliced in half at the waist by the spikes on her chariot. Someone else almost suffered the same fate. Was it Hagen (Ralf Moeller), Juba (Djiimon Hounson) or Maximus?

19. Maximus risked his life when he turned his back on the Emperor in the arena. What else could have been interpreted as an act of defiance?

20. Our clever, little friend, Johnny Brundle, has found his way onto the set of countless films. You may not have seen him, few have, but that's only because most don't know where to look… and the fact that he's a fly. We'll point you in the right direction. The rest is up to you. If Maximus heard what our little friend overheard while he was hiding in the Emperor's palace, he may have tried to exploit that information. What did Commodus admit to being afraid of?
21. It didn't take Maximus long to bring down the only undefeated champion in Roman history. Suppose the Tigris of Gaul (Sven-Ole Thorsen) was asked about that defeat. He could have used this as an excuse. The answer we're looking for here involves a number.

22. Remember the history lesson that Lucius (Spencer Treat Clark) was given in the chapter entitled Busy Little Bee? Cassius (David Hemmings) wasn't there, but suppose he had been. What would he have been referring to if he remarked, "Your history seems to be a little hazy, sire"?

23. Maximus asked Quintus for two favors before he passed away. One involved the release of his men. What was his other request?

24. If you traced Juba's last steps, you'd end up in the coliseum. Why did he return to the place where his friend died?
The famous Karni Mata temple in the city of Deshnoke is home to more than 15,000 deities. To us, they just look like rats. Dining with the critters is considered a supreme blessing if you believe in supreme beings and reincarnation. The sooner the better, we say, if our only other choice is the custom that Ahmad (Antonio Banderas) refused to partake in.
