Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. The year 2012 saw the remake of the 1980 horror cult classic 'Maniac'. It stars Elijah Wood as a psychotic killer named Frank Zito. He stalks and murders women, scalps them, then keeps their hair to put on the heads of his disturbing collection of mannequins. Who plays the role of Frank Zito in the original 1980 version of the film?

Answer: Joe Spinell

Late actor Joe Spinell not only had the starring role as Frank Zito, but he was also one of the writers of the original film. Spinell can also be seen in the films 'Rocky' (1976), 'The Godfather' (1972), and 'The Godfather II' (1974), just to name a few.
2. Actor Dylan Walsh stars in a 2009 remake of a 1987 slasher thriller that originally stars Terry O'Quinn as the lead character. What is the title that both of these films share?

Answer: The Stepfather

The original 1987 version of 'The Stepfather' stars Terry O'Quinn as a psychotic serial killer who continuously trades his identities to meet women, marry them, and become a family man. The REALLY bad part is that when things start to go south and his identity becomes revealed by someone... he loses his mind and murders them! This classic slasher/thriller is followed by two sequels, and the 2009 remake that stars 'Nip/Tuck' actor Dylan Walsh as the lead role.
3. Ryan Reynolds and Melissa George star in this 2005 remake of a classic horror film from the seventies. Which one is it?

Answer: The Amityville Horror

Way before the 2009 supernatural horror film 'Paranormal Activity' and other modern films like it... there was 'The Amityville Horror'. This 1979 creeper is based on the paranormal events that allegedly took place during the time the Lutz family were living in the house. James Brolin and Margot Kidder star as George and Kathy Lutz. Ryan Reynolds and Melissa George star as the unfortunate Lutz couple in the 2005 remake, and Philip Baker Hall stars as Father Callaway.
4. Tobe Hooper directed this gruesome film that stars Angela Bettis and is a remake of a 1978 exploitation slasher. Which one?

Answer: Toolbox Murders

'Toolbox Murders' is a gruesome 2004 slasher film that stars Angela Bettis as Nell Barrows. It is about a killer who murders his victims in an apartment building using different tools from a toolbox that he carries around. This film is a remake of the 1978 movie titled 'The Toolbox Murders', which also lays the gore on pretty heavy and is considered an exploitation film and cult classic.
5. The year 2006 gave us the remake of the 1974 classic 'Black Christmas'. One of the actresses from the original film stars in this sequel as the sorority housemother. Which actress is it?

Answer: Andrea Martin

The 2006 version of the film also goes by the title 'Black X-mas' and stars Andrea Martin as housemother Barbara MacHenry. In this remake of Bob Clark's 1974 classic, there is a difference in the plot, as well as the film's twist. In the 1974 version, Martin plays the role of sorority girl Phyllis Carlson. Olivia Hussey, Margot Kidder, and John Saxon also star. Both films take place in a huge sorority house around Christmas break.

A killer is stalking and murdering the residents one by one. Bob Clark directed and produced the 1974 original, and was also executive producer of the remake.

When the head of the family dies unexpectedly, it is up to the teenaged children to carry on the family traditions of kidnapping and eating other people. The remake stars Bill Sage, Kelly McGillis, and Michael Parks. It also stars Wyatt Hawn Russell, who is the son of Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn.
7. Actress Adrienne Barbeau stars in this 1980 horror classic that got a reboot in 2005 and stars Tom Welling. Which film am I referring to?

Answer: The Fog

In 'The Amityville Horror' she plays the role of Chelsea Lutz, and in the 2008 remake of the Pang Brothers' 2002 film 'The Eye', Chloe plays the role of Alicia. Moretz has made a great career for herself playing in various horror films, which also includes the remake of the 2008 film 'Let the Right One In' titled 'Let Me In'.

She also stars with Johnny Depp in the 2012 film 'Dark Shadows', which is based on the television soap opera of the same name that aired from 1966 through 1971.

Answer: The Blob

The original film from 1958 stars actor Steve McQueen. It is about an alien that is made of a gooey glob-like jelly substance, and it can squeeze through almost anything. It covers and swallows its victims and doing so makes it grow to great proportions. The remake came out exactly 30 years later in 1988.
10. The 2009 film titled 'The Uninvited' is a remake of a 2003 Korean horror film. Name the film.

Answer: A Tale of Two Sisters

The wonderfully creepy South Korean film titled 'A Tale of Two Sisters' was the highest grossing Korean horror film when it was released, and also the first to be shown in theaters in the United States. It is about two sisters who are very close. They come home after being in a mental hospital and begin seeing creepy images and apparitions, as well as having nightmares, which leads to secrets being revealed later in the film.

The remake which is titled 'The Uninvited' stars Emily Browning, Arielle Kebbel, Elizabeth Banks, and David Strathairn.

While the remake is a bit different with certain details of the film, it still delivers the chills!
