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
..................................
Byron Haskin, 1953
All questions and quizzes written by Philip Cerreta unless otherwise noted
..................................
who has seen as many of 'em as we have. This one, the film, kids, not the war, began with two of them. What do we mean by that?

2. In our Monster Book of Movie Monster Trivia, we told you why you should pick us over some bug-eyed Martian if it came down to a War of the Worlds trivia challenge. The Martians' intellect in this film was described as vast, cool, and un-what?

3. Any alien species with the intellect to cross vast distances of space wouldn't do so to wipe out another world, would they? They might if ... which was why these guys gave it their best shot.

4. Remember the meteor that descended over Pine Summit? The one that Dr. Forrester (Gene Barry) thought was either very light or hollow based on the size and the depth of the impact crater? If you don't, if might cost you. Explain.
Where do you start and/or what do you hit first if your mission is to invade the planet Earth? The answer, fortunately for us, isn't the home of a trivia buff - or is it? If anyone knows what to do in the unlikely event of an alien invasion, it would be us, or anyone
5. Dr. Forrester's area of expertise? Anyone? That's right, astro and nuclear physics. Pretty impressive stuff. Impressive enough to make the cover of Time magazine. That's what Sylvia (Ann Robinson) was referring to when she remarked, "You know, you've got to rate to get
that." What did she do for a living?

6. You might want to stand back when we fire this thing up. If it looks like a Martian heat ray, that's because it is. What happened when they used them for the first time?

7. The ship's definitely gonna hit the fan if anyone hits ours' with a shovel. Benny didn't become the Martians' first victim after he hit the original pilot ship with one, these guys did.

8. Pick a number between two and four. Three? Good guess. That's how many ships were landing at a time. How were they linked
and what stopped whenever they moved?

9. Ready, aim - hold your fire unless you've got something that can penetrate that thing. What kind of defense mechanism did the Martian ships employ?

10. If and when the Martians ever do come, do as we say, not as Sylvia's uncle (Lewis Martin) did. What was he trying to do when he was vaporized by one of their heat rays?
The Day The Earth Stood Still
Robert Wise, 1951
Beware aliens bearing gifts, even those with good intentions. Klaatu (Michael Rennie) seemed sincere when he told the people of Earth that he came in peace and with good will, but how many really believed him? There's something to be said for skepticism. So go ahead. Send him back to the planet from whence he came with the device that was given to the President of the United States.
War of the Worlds
(1) The film began with black and white newsreel footage of the first and second World War. (2) Sympathetic (3) Their own world was dying.
(4) The townsfolk wanted to turn it into a tourist attraction. (5) She taught Library Science at the University of Southern California.
(6) The town's electricity was knocked out, all of the phones went dead, and the clocks all stopped on the same time.

(7) The three men that approached the ship with a white flag. That, kids is the universal sign for, I'm an idiot who thinks any alien species would know what that meant. (8) They were linked magnetically. All communication in the area stopped whenever they moved. (9) Each ship was surrounded by an electro-magnetic shield. (10) He was trying to communicate with them through the word of God. Good luck with that.


The Day The Earth Stood Still
On second thought, maybe we'll keep it. But only long enough to figure out how to make one of our own. Then we'll give him the boot. A device that enabled the human race to study life on other planets would benefit mankind. Hey, wait a minute… don't we already have one of those?
