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!

Let's get this one started with a few taglines. What we want you to do is to tell us where they came from. Are they a play on words from something that was said in the film, were they lifted from the film's theatrical trailer or did we just make them up?
A. A band on the verge of stardom, and a nervous breakdown.
B. Ernest Hemmingway once wrote, "Remember them as they are and write them off." Their critics already have.
C. From the place where eardrums go to die, come the living legends of rock 'n roll lunacy.


2. The band performed under a number of different names in the early 60s before they changed their name to Spinal Tap. One was The Originals. What were some of the others?

3. "Coming live, direct from Hell. Spinal Tap!" Which one of the band's songs usually followed that introduction?

4. Its karaoke night at McCarthy's Bar and Grill. It's also the night of your 27th birthday. After a couple of renditions that would make even the hard of hearing cringe, someone who can actually sing takes the stage. The song he's chosen is Big Bottom - your favorite song from one of your all-time favorite movies. It's a nice little surprise that your girlfriend admits to having something to do with. What you don't know is that your friends have set you up. They've paid the person onstage to get your table to sing-along. They've also paid the manager to pull the plug
This is Spinal Tap
(1) All were lifted from the film's theatrical trailer. We just added a few words. Bonus points to anyone who can pick them out. You'll have to watch the trailer again for the answer. (2) The New Originals and the Thames Men (3) Tonight I'm Gonna Rock You Tonight (4) "I'd like to sink her with my pink torpedo." (5) C (6) Not a word of it. (7) Second billing to a puppet show (8) They talked about doing a rock musical based on the life of Jack the Ripper called Saucy Jack. (9) Marty discovered the band at a club in Greenwich Village called The Electric Banana

Detroit Rock City
He forgot to give the radio station his name and address.
Rob Reiner, 1984
Full quiz available in volume 1 of Lights, Camera, Trivia
just at the right moment. If everything goes according to plan, you'll be the only person still singing when the music stops. What line would be sung a cappella if the music stopped after the words, "My baby fits me like a flesh tuxedo"?

5. Anything that could go wrong for the band either before, during or after a show usually did. Which of the following mishaps occurred at the Vandermint Auditorium in Chapel Hill, North Carolina?


A. They got lost trying to find the stage.
B. Derek (Harry Shearer) got stuck inside a giant pea pod.
C. Nigel (Christopher Guest) needed some help to get back on his feet after he bent over backwards during a guitar solo.


6. Given the band's past history of drummers, it's remarkable that they were able to keep finding replacements. The thought freaked Mick (R.J. Parnell) out. But whatever concerns he had were outweighed by the benefits that came with being a rock star. He also felt that the law of averages were in his favor. That was why he didn't quit the band. Is any part of that statement incorrect?

7. Say what you will about Jeanine (June Chadwick), she was responsible for
Nigel and Ian's (Tony Hendra) departure, but if it wasn't for her, the band wouldn't have landed their most memorable gig. One they probably still laugh about today for all the wrong reasons. Guess which one we're referring to.

8. Been there, but never did that. The project that David (Michael McKean) and Derek talked about collaborating on if and when the band ever decided to truly call it quits may have been just crazy enough to work. What did it involve?

9. Fast-forward three or four decades. The band is no longer together but one of the products they endorsed is still around. It's a nine-inch yellow vibrator called the Electric Banana. The mere mention of one of those things would bring a laugh and a smile to Marty's (Rob Reiner) face. Why?
Detroit Rock City
Adam Rifkin, 1999
"Gene Klein, Stanley Eisen, Paul Frehley and Peter Crisscola." That was the answer to the question that won some lucky fan four front-row tickets to see KISS at Cobo Hall in Detroit Rock City. It should have been Trip (James DeBello). He was the first caller to answer the question correctly, but the tickets were given to someone else. Do you remember why?
