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!

Stanley Kubrick, 1980
All questions and quizzes written by Philip Cerreta unless otherwise noted
Guess where we're headed? That's right - to the infamous Overlook Hotel. We want to see if the place really is haunted. What room should we ask for when we get there?
2. Ever wonder why some murder sites become haunted or why some houses are haunted, at all? There's really no definitive answer. But we think we've got this one figured out.

3. If you decided to tag along, sign in at the reception desk and then look for the first door on your left. That's where you'll find __________ .

4. Think it was a coincidence that the place closed down on All Hallows Eve each year? The question is, why that day and when did it reopen?

5. Maybe it was cabin fever. Who's to say the apparitions weren't just a figment of Jack's (Jack Nicholson) imagination. That's what we're here to find out. Did Stuart (Barry Nelson) mention that the place was haunted when he interviewed Jack for the caretaker position?
6. Speaking of imaginations and imaginary friends, Danny (Danny Lloyd) had one. He might come out if you call him by name. If that doesn't work, try looking in his favorite hiding spot.

7. You remember what happened at the hotel in the winter of 1970, don't you? Jack couldn't wait to tell his wife (Shelley Duvall) about that story, when he heard it. Was it because he wanted to give her a good scare?

8. Either we're seeing things or Stuart didn't have his facts straight. We're referring to the Grady twins (Lisa and Louise Burns). Tell why the deceased girls shouldn't have resembled one another.

9. If you're not familiar with how this next question works, we provide an excerpt from one of the film's feature commentaries. Your task is to identify the scene (or, as is the case
here, the person) based on that excerpt. It's that simple.

John Baxter: "In a way, one could say that (his) character is almost like Hal, the computer in 2001, the voice of reason. He supplies everything (that Jack) needs, but never really becomes human himself."

10. Did you catch the film's Hansel and Gretel reference? Wendy joked, "I feel like I have to leave a trail of breadcrumbs every time I come in (here)." Where was she when she said that?

11. All work and no play made Jack a dull boy. What kept him sober?

12. "Some (people) shine, some don't." If you know what The Shining is, try explaining it to us.
The Shining
(1) 237 (2) The hotel was built on top of an old Indian burial ground. (3) Stuart's office (4) If the hotel closed any later than the first week of November, all of its guests would have been snowbound. There was only road in (and out) - a 25-mile stretch that was covered by over 20 feet of snow during the winter. The resort reopened each year on May 15th. (5) He told him about what happened at the hotel, but he never said the place was haunted. So the correct answer is no, he did not. (6) The name of Danny's imaginary friend was Tony. His favorite hiding spot was in Danny's mouth. If you find him there, it's only because he likes you.

(7) Yes and no. She just loved ghost stories and horror movies (our kind of girl!) (8) There could have been some resemblance, but they shouldn't have looked exactly alike. Not if what he told Jack were true. He said they were two years apart (about 8 and 10). (9) Lloyd the Bartender (Joe Turkel) (10) Hallorann was showing her around the kitchen.  (11) You can't fall off the wagon when's there's nothing to drink, can you? The hotel removed all of its liquor during the winter months to reduce its insurance costs. But it was more than that. Jack made a promise to himself and his family. (12) It's the ability to converse with another individual telepathically.


The Amityville Horror
The shadow of a child appeared in the hallway.
We hear you're in the market for a new home. Any interest in one that's haunted? Before you say no, think about the possibilities. If the Lutzs saw what the realtor (Annabel Armour) saw while they were checking out one of the rooms, they never would have bought the place. Describe that encounter for us.
