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

Sleepy Hollow
(1) For that very reason. He also thought it would be a good way to teach Ichabod some dignity and respect. (2) No (3) Did you try to spook us with the story of the Horseman? Ichabod had to put down the cup of tea he was drinking when he heard it. (4) The Widow Winship (5) Someone decapitated Jonathan from his horse, while it was galloping at full stride. Ichabod also noticed that the prints went in two different directions (the Horseman went back to get Jonathan's severed head).

(6) "Because… (I said so!)" (7) Most were (8) Ichabod didn't like people watching him work because it affected his concentration. (9) Just a pair of lips and someone to play the role of the Pickety Witch. (10) Baltus thought the books caused the brain fever that killed his wife. (11) He used a flaming jack-o-lantern to knock Ichabod from his horse.

The Corpse Bride
He lifted Napoleon Bonesapart (Deep Roy) up by the sword that was impaled through his chest.
 
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!

All questions and quiizzes written by Philip Cerreta unless otherwise noted

Tim Burton, 1999
2. The unsheathing of the Horseman's (Christopher Walken) blade was clearly heard in the film's opening sequence. Could one say the same thing about the galloping hooves of his steed?

3. Have you ever been so scared that your hand started to shake? Ichabod's did in the chapter entitled The Headless Horseman. Try to frighten us the same way.

4. "Their heads were not found severed. Their heads were not found at all." The Reverend Steenwyck (Jeffrey Jones) was referring to Peter Van Garrett (Martin Landau), Peter's son, Dirk (Robert Sella), and whom else when those words were spoken?

5. Samuel Butler once said that life is the art of drawing sufficient conclusions from insufficient premises. What conclusion was drawn from the hoof-prints that were found near Jonathan
We know why Ichabod Crane (Johnny Depp) was sent to the town of Sleepy Hollow, so answer this question for us - if his "experimentations" bothered the Burgomaster (Christopher Lee) as much as he said they did, why was he given the task?
Masbath's (Mark Spalding) body?

6. There's a million questions that can be answered with a single word. The one that Dr. Lancaster (Ian McDiarmid) raised (why a dead body shouldn't be moved) isn't one of them. If you forgot what Ichabod said, think back to when you were a child. You must have heard the same thing a hundred times when you asked why you couldn't (or shouldn't) do something.

7. The instruments that Ichabod used were quite unique, to say the least. Were they of his own design?

8. Dr. Lancaster wanted to observe the autopsy that was performed on the Widow Winship, as did Mr. Killian (Steven Waddington). Both were denied. Do you remember why?

9. You'd need a blindfold to
play the game that Katrina (Christina Ricci) was playing when her character was introduced. Anything else?

10. How could a book cause someone's death? A hardcover copy of our first volume certainly could if you whack them over the head with it. The romance novels that Katrina hid from her father supposedly brought on this illness, but only a fool would believe such nonsense.

11. You can't have decapitations in a Disney movie, can you? So how did the Horseman dispatch its victims in Walt's version of the tale? We'll give you a hint - Brom Van Brunt (Casper Van Dien) did the same thing when he tried to scare Ichabod.
