Movie Trivia Challenge for Week of 01.10.11

January 10, 2011

“Shall we play a game?”

And with that simple question, we’ll now engage in the online, movie trivia equivalent of thermonuclear warfare!

UPDATED RULES on 01/10/2011 01/11/2011

Well, I’m a complete dork…

Yeah, I know, of course I’m a dork, but no, I mean a real and actual dork (I prefer definition #2, by the way)! Thanks to @dialmformovies on Twitter, it was brought to my attention that while I’ve been diligently updating the rules of submitting answers for the movie trivia challenge, I, uhm, well it appears that I never bothered posting one teeny, tiny detail…


Okay. I’m good now. So, because of this MILD oversight on my part, this week’s trivia challenge will now extend through today (1/11).

Here’s how you play:

Each letter in the word below comes from a different VHS cover. All you have to do is identify which movie title each letter comes from based solely on the letter. Submit your answer(s) via the process below and you win. It’s as simple as that! Good luck!

Here’s a recap of the rules:

  • Submit your answers via Twitter to @forgottenflix (use the hashtag #movietrivia) or leave your answers in the comments section of this post.
  • All correct answers submitted by 8 PM (EST) today (01/10/2011 01/11/2011) via Twitter or comments will be accepted.
  • You can submit an answer for each letter in this week’s word.
  • You only have to get one letter correct to win and I’ll enter your name into the next prize drawing (March 2011).
  • Your name will be entered into the prize drawing for every correct answer you submit for a total of 6 possible times (based on the word below).

One Final Note

The prize drawings will now occur once every quarter rather than once a month. This ensures the prizes are of a higher quality and that more people will have the opportunity to enter and win!

If you have any questions, are confused about the new game play, or generally want to vent your frustrations as you scour the Inter-Webs searching for the answers, please leave a comment below or email me at

Remember ALL answers are due by tonight (01/10 01/11) at 8 PM (EST) and must be submitted via Twitter or the comments section to count!

Now that you know how to play, here’s your word for the week courtesy of Mr. Dale Lloyd (remember to check him out on Twitter @VivaVHS):

  1. Movie Trivia Hints:

    F — Tobe Hooper at the sideshow written by a master of mystery.

    E — Nicolas Cage plays Helen Hunts daddy? And what the hell’s up with his voice, anyway? And was that Jim Carrey?

    R — Denzel and Ferris Bueller kickin’ ass for the Union?

    R — Cavemen and aliens. It also rhymes with TOR (I know super lame clue, but it’s all I got.)

    I — The Fonz and Beetlejuice in a morgue with hookers?

    S — Another mid-80s creature feature w/ awesome quill-covered

    E- Peggy Sue Got Married â€ĶI think.

  10. The Funhouse
    Peggy Sue Got Married
    Yor: Hunter from the future
    Night Shift

  11. Shannon Jan 11, 2011

    Love the summary of Yor: “Yor, an extremely blond prehistoric warrior, comes to question his origins, particularly with regard to a mysterious medallion he wears. When he learns of a desert goddess who supposedly wears the same medallion, Yor decides that he must find her and learn his true identity. Along the way, he encounters ape-men, dinosaurs, and a strange futuristic society.”

    • Shannon–Best description from that summary: “an extremely blond prehistoric warrior”. I mean, is there any other kind? 😉

  12. Congratulations to everyone who played this week! Your name will be entered into the next prize drawing (in March) for every correct answer you submitted. 🙂
