UPDATE – The answers and Leaderboard have been added below. Round 3 questions will be up on Monday morning – October 19th – around 8:00 a.m. EST.
With 12 contestants, we’ve got a good showing for this contest. While it doesn’t reach the heights of the 2o+ that we had for the 80’s and 90’s-themed bouts, 12 makes for a nice field of competition. I realize the Halloween horror can be a niche market that scares off all but the heartiest of souls.
And truth be told, I’m not much of a horror movie buff, despite the fact that I love the Halloween season. That said, I do read a lot of entertainment websites and I’m a voracious film fan so I’m usually in the know on most avenues of pop culture even if I don’t partake in it. So, I know as much about High School Musical as I do Hostel, even if I’ve never settled down to take in either scary movie. For some reason, I’ve been gifted with a near photographic memory of any pop culture I run across and yet, I can scarcely remember my wife Alison’s birthday. In fact, looking back at the Round 1 questions, I haven’t seen 6 of the 10 flicks featured in those questions and yet I knew enough about them from memory to craft the questions. That’s my superpower, I guess.
So, here we are with the Round 2 installment of Trivia of Terror. As I mentioned last week, this contest will run for 4 weeks, with a new round of 10 questions being posted each Monday morning.
I’ll be away Monday morning so I figured I’d post these questions early meaning everyone has an extra day to get me their answers. Contestants have until 7:00 a.m. Wedneday October 14th to send me their answers. The answers should be sent via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
As always, there is no cheating. You are on your honor – meaning you cannot hit up your wicked smart spouse or peruse the Internet in hopes of finding the solution to that which haunts you. Answer these off the top of your head and then send me your submission. Afterall, this is all in fun. No prize to be had aside from bragging rights.
To that end, I’ll post the results and updated leaderboard each Thursday.
May the best guy or ghoul win!!!
