The only eyewitness to the Terminator's (Arnold Schwarzenegger) arrival in present-day Los Angeles noticed something that he may have later described as "Troubling, but no real cause for concern." The answer we're looking for here isn't "A naked man
Want to sell us on an upgrade over the T-800 cyborg we currently own? Let's see one catch a bullet with its teeth. That was how Kate (Claire Danes) discovered that the T-850 (Arnold Schwarzenegger) was a cybernetic organism. How did the viewer discover that the T-X (Kristanna Loken) could alter its appearance at will?

The Terminator
(1) His truck stalled out. (2) B (3) The victim's heart was removed. (4) A weapon of some type could have been surgically implanted into an animal, like a horse or even a dog. The animal would only have to survive the operation long enough to be sent through the machine. It may sound cruel, but isn't the life of one animal (or even a few) worth sacrificing to save the human race?

(5) That question wasn't answered in the film. (6) The cranes at a construction site. (7) He found her university ID card. (8) The POWs were used as labor to load bodies. (9) It moved its eyes in one direction and then its head, and then back in the opposite direction. (10) It shoved the driver (Wayne Stone) of the tanker truck out of the way.


Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines
She enlarged her breasts when she was pulled over for speeding. Forget the T-850, we'll take one of those.
 
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!

appearing out of thin air," but rather something that happened prior to that.

2. The model 101 cyborg that was sent back in time to terminate Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) may have looked human, but it lacked the social skills that were needed to blend into a crowd. That was one disadvantage. Which of the following could also be called a "design flaw"?


A. It didn't perspire like a normal person did when it exerted energy.
B. Its movements were more mechanical than human.
C. The lens behind its iris was detectable to the trained eye.
D. All of the above


3. The police probably thought they were dealing with some sort of ritualistic, serial killer when they found the body of the Terminator's first victim. Tell us why.

4. It was said that the Time Displacement machine could only transport living tissue.
That explained why Kyle (Michael Biehn) went through without any of the weapons he needed. But there was a way. Explain how it could have been done.

5. The officer that tried to apprehend Kyle in the alley told him what day and month it was, but he didn't mention the year. How did he acquire that information?

6. If you got that last question right, you've earned an easy one. What triggered Kyle's first flashback, or should we say "flash-forward"?

7. The Terminator tracked Sarah down after he heard the message she left on her answering machine. How did he discover what she looked like?

8. The patrol machines, or Hunter Killers as they were more commonly known, often rounded up a few select individuals and kept
them alive for what purpose?

9. The Terminator exhibited a physical behavioral trait that was indicative of a cybernetic organism while it was looking for Sarah in the parking garage. If you need a hint on this one, it's in the wording of the question.

10. When the Terminator reached for Sarah with its right hand while it was being compressed, that was the closest it came to reaching its target. Who would have been the last person it shoved, pushed or touched if Kyle was taken out of the equation?
