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!

Lights, Camera, Trivia
..................................
James Gunn, 2006
..................................
Did it appear to be too large or too small?

2. The story took place in a town called Wheelsy. On the outskirts of that town was a billboard with a spaceship. What did one have to do with the other?

3. Grant (Michael Rooker) should have been at home, in bed with his wife (Elizabeth Banks), the night he was infected. Why wasn't he?

4. Even if you've never seen either version of The Blob, common sense should tell you to stay away from anything that crawls out of a meteorite. And never, we repeat NEVER poke it with a stick! That's just asking for trouble. Did Grant make that mistake?

5. Anyone who knew Grant must have suspected that something was wrong, well before any physical changes occurred. His behavior was one indication. The other
Remember the meteorite that fell to Earth in the film's opening sequence? We don't know how fast it was traveling, but it was obvious to anyone who's smarter than a fifth grader that the impact crater wasn't proportionate to the size of the object.
The Thing
John Carpenter, 1982
An autopsy on the body that was distorted beyond recognition revealed what the men of Station 4 were up against. What they didn't know was that every part of the creature was a whole, and that every little piece was an individual organism with a built-in desire to protect its own life. Not until... Walk us through the scene in question. And then run for your life!
Slither
(1) It was too small. (2) The billboard was an advertisement for the town's "(city) of the future." (3) He went down to the local tavern after Starla rejected his advances. How he ended up in the woods with Brenda (Brenda James) that night is a question for another quiz. (4) Yes, he did.
(5) His appetite (for raw meat) became insatiable

(6) D (7) Angel's Tavern and Max Renn's Gun and Ammo Shop (8) Wally (Don Thompson) beat Bill (Nathan Fillion) in a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors. (9) Their projectile vomit was acidic. (10) There were three survivors, not two, they walked away and they knew where they were headed (to a hospital in a town called Bishopville).

The Thing
The creature emerged from Norris' (Charles Hallahan) body during the blood serum test.
was even more alarming. What are we referring to?

6. Fast-forward to the chapter entitled Sensing Change. Who doesn't love a good shower scene? The one in this film was as good as any in recent memory. Why didn't Starla see what the viewer saw?

A. Her back was turned
B. The shower door was
fogged up
C. Grant pushed his tentacles back into his shirt.
D. All of the above

7. Let's say you were passing through the town of Wheelsy the night it was overrun by zombies. If you heard about it from someone at the local tavern you would have stopped here and then may have been directed there, if you expressed an interest in helping to dispose of some of the said creatures.

8. Being the first one to discover something isn't
necessarily a good thing, particularly when it involves ravenous, alien organisms. How did the group decide who should go into the farmhouse first?

9. Those who became zombified by the creatures (for lack of a better word) could do something that the slugs could not. Think Alien meets The Exorcist.

10. No one knew where they were going in the last scene in the original Dawn of the Dead. They were just thankful to be alive, and in one piece. How did the ending of this film differ from that one?
