Lions don't kill for pleasure, do they? We're the only creatures who do that. But maybe Remington (Michael Douglas) was right. A den littered with hundreds of human bones and some personal belongings would suggest otherwise. One could also point to Mahina's (Henry Cele) demise as an example of their unnatural behavior. Tell us why.

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.

The film's opening sequence got us thinking… was there anything that could have saved Chrissie (Susan Backlinie) from the jaws of death? The answer is "No." Not unless the events that led up to the attack played out in a slightly different way. So, you'll have to
change something to find the answer we're looking for. We'll give you one hint - it involves the last person to see her alive.

2. There were only a few words spoken in the film's opening sequence, but that was enough to answer at least one question - did Tom (Jonathan Filley) and Chrissie know each other prior to that night? That was answered in which of the following ways?


A. Tom asked Chrissie if she was seeing anyone.
B. Tom asked Chrissie, "What's your name, again?"
C. Tom introduced himself to Chrissie.
D. The words, "I know a great place to swim if you want to follow me" indicated that Chrissie was familiar with the area while Tom was not.


3. When Chief Brody (Roy Scheider) was asked to change Chrissie's cause of death to a "probable" boating accident, he could have refused, but he didn't. Tell us why.

4. The reward that was offered for the shark's capture drew Quint's (Robert Shaw) interest, but it wasn't nearly enough. His asking price was ten grand. For that, he said, "You get the head, the tail, the whole damn thing." No one asked him how he planned to do that, at least not at the
Jaws
(1) If Tom had followed Chrissie into the water, he may have been the shark's first victim.(2) B (3) He didn't have enough evidence at the time to disprove the Medical Examiner's (Dr. Robert Nevin) report. (4) It would have drowned in shallow water. (5) The actual signs read, "No Swimming. Hazardous Area. Beach closed by order of Amity P.D."

(6) Man-eaters as large as the one that was caught were rarely found off the coast of Amity Island. (7) The tooth that was found in the hull of Ben Gardner's (Craig Kingsbury) boat was the size of a shot glass. (8) He said it was only an island if you looked at it from the water. (9) The Mayor (Murray Hamilton) promised to get off Quint's back about the zoning laws. The deal also included a case of apricot brandy, some champagne, Iranian caviar, and a color television. (10) He covered his nose with a handkerchief that was sprayed with cologne (Old Spice).


The Ghost and the Darkness
He was feasted on from the feet up, and then his skin was licked off so the lion could drink his blood. They don't devour their prey that way.
meeting, but that was probably because of his reputation. How would the shark have been killed if his last plan succeeded?

5. Brody wanted the signs that were posted to read, "Beaches Closed. No swimming by order of the Amity P.D." But that's not what he got. How was the wording changed?

6. Everyone thought the beaches were safe again when a group of fishermen returned with a tiger shark that measured over eight feet in length. Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) had his doubts, though, because the creature's bite radius was too small, and the odds of catching the exact shark were something like 100-1. But even he remarked, "I'm not saying this isn't the shark. It probably is." What did he base that comment on?

7. If Hooper saw what Michael (Chris Rebello) saw in the estuary, it would have answered a few of his questions including, were Chrissie and the Kintner boy (Jeffrey Voorhees) killed by a Great White? What piece of evidence confirmed that fact?

8. How did Chief Brody rationalize his fear of the ocean when Hooper asked him why someone who
hated the water would take a job on an island?

9. Quint was promised $200 a day, whether he caught the shark or not, along with a few other incentives. We counted five. Name at least three.

10. You could almost smell the chum that was used to draw the shark to the surface. Brody tried to mask the odor in some way. Do you remember how?
