If you ordered a copy our monster movie quiz book and received a package containing the parts and instructions to build a complex communication device called the interocitor instead, it's no mistake.

Four lucky movie buffs will be flown aboard a unmanned, computer-controlled Douglas DC-3 aircraft to a remote area in Georgia and then to a second, undisclosed location. That's where you'll find our book and the answers to all of your own questions. All you have to do is step inside the Thought Transference Chamber. What happened to those who did?

The Thing From Another World
(1) He was measuring variations in the Earth's magnetic field. (2) He was looking for a story in the film's opening sequence, which he found, but not there or then, if that makes any sense. (3) He used a mountain peak that was "practically" due east to navigate his plane. (4) A Geiger counter led the men to the creature's body.

5. Aren't you supposed to wait at least an hour before you destroy whatever it is that's running amok? The "greatest discovery in

Carrington ended up with a broken collarbone when he tried to reason with the creature and this which is what we have now and why we're ending this quiz here. Sorry, kids.
history" went up in flames when someone with SFB (that's shit for brains, kids) gave the order to do this to retrieve the alien's ship, which ironically enough, is exactly what we would have liked to have seen done to that person if it had been the alien, itself.

6. You know who should have gotten it first and worst when the alien escaped from the block of ice? Corporal Barnes (William Shelf). Why him?

7. In our 20 Million Miles to Earth quiz (The Monster Book of Movie Monster Trivia), we asked what made the Ymir one tough son of a you know what.
