5. In Other Words: Try to figure out this movie from the synonyms used to describe it. A Flawless Homicide

Answer: A Perfect Murder

"A Perfect Murder" is a remake of Hitchcock's classic film "Dial M for Murder", though there were some changes made to the plot. In the movie, a Wall Street stockbroker (Michael Douglas) finds his investments sinking and suddenly needs a huge sum of money to get himself out of trouble. Knowing his rich wife (Gwyneth Paltrow) is cheating on him, he decides to take the easy way out and get her killed, thus inheriting her money.
6. Hidden Words: Find the movie hidden in the sentence below. Being an introvert, I got up and left as soon as the group began making party plans.

Answer: Vertigo

...introVERT, I GOt...

Another Hitchcock masterpiece, "Vertigo" is set in California and stars James Stewart and Kim Novak. Stewart plays a detective who is forced to retire from the police force due to a sudden onset of vertigo. On a request from a friend, he starts following the friend's wife, played by Novak and ends up falling in love with her. Novak's character appears to be delusional and in what seems like a tragic twist, commits suicide by jumping off a bell tower. Stewart is unable to stop her as his vertigo prevents him from reaching the top in time.

Answer: Chinatown

"Chinatown", starring Jack Nicholson, Faye Dunaway, and John Huston, is directed by Roman Polanski. Nicholson plays a private detective who is seemingly hired to investigate an adultery case but later realises he was set up with the actual motive being far from simple.

This film was the last one directed by Polanski in America before he fled the country to avoid facing prosecution on charges of rape.
8. Cryptic: Solve the puzzle to guess the movie. Mixed pore hides this weapon from Clue.

Answer: Rope

"Rope" by Alfred Hitchcock is based on a play of the same name by Patrick Hamilton. In the movie, the characters of John Dall and Farley Granger kill one of their former classmates solely to prove that the 'perfect murder' can be committed. The play is believed to have been inspired by the real life murder of Bobby Franks by Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb in 1924.
9. Anagram: Unscramble the capitalized word to form a movie. Her AURAL senses sharpened, she strained to catch stray sounds in the dark.

"Laura" is a 1944 film directed and produced by Otto Preminger. The film begins with a detective played by Dana Andrews investigating the murder of an advertising executive named Laura (Gene Tierney). In the course of the investigation, the detective creates an image of the dead woman through her letters and interviews with people she knew and ends up falling in love with the woman he imagines her to have been.

With Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins in the lead roles, "The Silence of the Lambs" is one of the most critically acclaimed and commercially successful thrillers of the 1990s. Clarice Starling, a young FBI agent, seeks the help of Dr. Hannibal Lecter, a jailed psychologist and himself a serial killer, to trap another serial killer.

The film was nominated for all the top five Academy Awards - Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Screenplay (adapted in this case) and went on to win all five.
