Keith Gordon stars as Arnie Cunningham in "Christine". Arnie buys a car named Christine which changes his whole life. He begins to restore Christine because she needs a lot of work, and she ends up looking brand new. Arnie gets an ego boost when he begins dating a really pretty girl named Leigh. Things go ok for them until Christine tries to kill Leigh when Arnie leaves her in the car by herself.

Other than fighting with his parents, things seem to be going good for Arnie when a group of punks come along and beat Christine to pieces. Together Arnie and Christine kill them.

Father Lankester Merrin is the older, more experienced priest sent to help the younger, dark-haired Father Damien Kerras. Father Merrin is killed by Regan when Damien leaves the room during the exorcism. When Father Kerras finds Father Merrin dead, he grabs Regan and demands that the demon leave Regan's body.

It then possesses Father Kerras. Father Kerras returns to normal, but then kills himself by jumping out of a window.
4. What character does Jamie Lee Curtis play in "The Fog" (1980)?

Answer: Elizabeth

In the beginning of the movie, Elizabeth (Jamie Lee Curtis) is picked up by Nick (Tom Atkins) while hitchhiking. The windows in the truck break just moments after she first gets in, but Elizabeth and Nick are ok. She and Nick remain together the rest of the movie, through all that happens. "The Fog" is about a small town in California named Antonio Bay.

A hundred years ago, six men decided to kill a colony of lepers and steal their gold. Now, the ghosts of the leper colony come back with the fog to avenge their deaths.

They kill six people, representing the six original conspirators, and get their stolen gold back, but not without stirring up the entire town. The six who die are: the three men aboard the boat in the beginning of the movie; Dan, the weatherman; Mrs. Kobritz, the old lady; and Father Malone (Father Malone's grandfather is one of the six original conspirators).

The character of Stevie was played by Adrienne Barbeau, Sandy was played by Nancy Kyes, and Kathy was played by Janet Leigh. Jamie starred in "Halloween" with Nancy Kyes, and later played in "Halloween:H20" with her mother, Janet Leigh.
5. Who directed "The Shining" (1980)?

Answer: Stanley Kubrick

The movie was based on Stephen King's novel, and was directed by Stanley Kubrick. Jack Nicholson starred as Jack Torrance in "The Shining". Jack and his family go and stay in an old hotel during the off season. Strange things happen while they are there, and Jack goes crazy.

He tries to kill his wife, Wendy, and his son, Danny. In the end, Jack ends up out in the snow and freezes to death. Stanley Kubrick's last movie, before dying of natural causes in 1999, was "Eyes Wide Shut".
6. Who plays Michael Myers as "The Shape" (with the mask on) in "Halloween" (1978)?

Answer: Nick Castle

Nick Castle plays "The Shape" (with the mask on), and Tony Moran plays the scene in the beginning when he steals the car, and the scene at the end when Laurie (Jamie Lee Curtis) pulls Michael's mask off. Dick Warlock plays "The Shape" in "Halloween 2". George P. Wilbur plays "The Shape" in "Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers" and "Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers". Nick Castle played music with John Carpenter in their band, The Coupe DeVilles.

The band is mentioned in "The Fog", when Stevie dedicates a song by them. Also, there is a character in "The Fog" named Nick Castle, who is played by Tom Atkins.
7. What hangs above Tina's bed in "A Nightmare on Elm Street" (1984)?

Answer: a crucifix

When Tina awakens from her nightmare in the opening scene, you can see the crucifix, which she grabs before she goes back to sleep. You can also see it again when Nancy and Glen spend the night, and Nancy is sleeping in Tina's bedroom by herself. The cross falls off the wall right before Freddy kills Tina.
8. Who is the director of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" (1974)?

Answer: Tobe Hooper

He starred with Tom Arnold in "Body Bags", as a couple of morgue workers. "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" is about five college kids who are traveling to Texas to see the grave of one of their grandfathers.

They run out of gas, and end up at the house of Bubba Sawyer Jr. (Leatherface) and his sinister family. One by one they are killed. John Carpenter directed many horror movies, including "Halloween" (1978), "Halloween 2" (1981), "Halloween 3: Season of the Witch" (1982), "The Fog" (1980), "Christine" (1983) and "Escape From New York" (1981). Sam Raimi directed "The Evil Dead" (1981), "The Evil Dead 2" (1987) and "Army of Darkness" (1993). Clive Barker directed "Hellraiser" (1987), "Nightbreed" (1990) and "Lord of Illusions" (1995).
9. What is the first thing to go wrong in "Poltergeist" (1982)?

Answer: Carol Anne's bird dies.

"Poltergeist" revolves around a little girl named Carol Anne and her family, the Freelings. Strange things start happening in their suburban home, which they later find out was built on an old Indian burial ground. In the beginning, the bird dies and Carol Anne buries it in the garden.

The chairs begin moving by themselves next. Carol Anne disappears and the only way her family can communicate with her is through a TV channel with nothing but static. Diane, Carol Anne's mother, saves her. They decide to move, but on their last night in the house, the spirits come back.

This is when Robbie gets pulled under his bed by the clown. They save Robbie and Carol Anne, and leave the house in the end.
10. What is the name of the bar that George Lutz goes into when he meets his friend, Jeff, in "The Amityville Horror" (1979)?

Answer: Witches Brew Bar

You can see "Witches Brew Bar" twice in the movie. Once, when George first pulls up on his motorcycle, and again when he's walking into the bar. He goes in and sits down at the bar. The bartender accidentally drops his beer because he's startled by George's resemblance to the Defeo kid that murdered his parents and four siblings a year before.

This happened in the house that George and his family are now living in. Shortly after, George and Jeff get into an argument about their business going bankrupt, and George punches Jeff in the face. George then helps Jeff up off the floor and apologizes for punching him.

The house seems to possess George Lutz. He hits his wife, Kathy, screams at the kids all the time, and constantly complains that he's cold. Along with Jeff and his girlfriend, Carolyn, George discovers that the evil is in the basement. Kathy goes to the local library the following day to find out about their home and what happened to the Defeos.

She sees a picture of Ronald Defeo, the killer, who looks just like George. Kathy drives home fearful that George is going to hurt her or the children, but he doesn't hurt anyone.

They finally escape from the house and everyone is safe.
