Halloween Horror Picks! Questionnaire and Such..


So, I’ve been doing a horror challenge for this lovely month of October in preperation of Halloween, and I thought it would be fun to see what the kind folks here had to say.

It’s not the best sample of questions, but I think there might be some interesting answers scattered about. Of course, this isn’t going to be one-a-day here.

It’s a nice idea but too many questions!


I intend to cherry-pick questions, in the fine tradition of politics!


Anyone - anyone! - who puts down “Miqque” as an answer to #16 will be summarily sent to the cornfield!

My answer is “Wesley Crusher”.


Favorite scary movie

Alien if it counts, Rosemary’s Baby if it doesn’t.

As far as number 1, it is tough. JAWS is a likely candidate. Certainly, I’d seen Dracula, The Wolf Man and Frankenstein at a much earlier age though, but I hadn’t ever been scared. I always identified with the monsters in those.

However, in JAWS, ALIEN, HALLOWEEN and THE THING, I felt scared for the victims.
