World’s Greatest Horror Quiz Part 1

Mike / September 12th, 2011

James and Mike do some more Horror Trivia. This time from the book “The World’s Greatest Horror Quiz” by Dan Carlinsky. This video was getting a little long, so we divided it into two parts. Part two coming very soon.

    The original ending of “Frankenstein Conquers the World” has the Monster escaping the volcano, only to get dragged underwater and killed by a giant octopus. That’s why one of the Gargantuas comes from the ocean and the other from the mountains. However, this was cut from the U.S. release.

  • GFan1985

    September 12, 2011 at 1:29 am

    Actually, the book was right about “Frankenstein Conquers the World”. The original ending has the Monster escaping the volcano, only to get dragged underwater and killed by a giant octopus. However, this was cut from the U.S. release.

    I have a complaint about this video. For those of us who’d like to try to play along at home, the visuals you chose give away many of the answers as soon a Mike reads the question.

    I’m looking forward to Monster Madness and keeping my fingers crossed for Rosemary’s Baby and The Omen & Damien.

    I bought one of your Monster Madness t-shirts last time. If there’s a new one & it looks good, I might buy another. Hint.

    @MatthewHervey You’re right. The video can’t really be used for doing the trivia yourself, unless maybe you listen to it, audio only. Maybe we’ll do another one sometime where you can pause and guess. That would be a good idea.

    @JamesAVGN heres a useless bit of info about James whale. He was born in England, Dudley – which is a few miles from where i live. Upon a visit to one of Dudley Zoo ghost tours the historian who tells you about the local history of the castle and all the creepy stuff that goes on there happend to get onto a section about Frakenstein and James Whale. He claims that some of James Whales relatives have been on the tour and they informed him that when he was a boy he used to take arts and crafts lessions and spend alot of time milling around the castle doing sketchings and paintings of the castle. In later life when he directed Frakenstein they reckon that the sketches of the castle ruins gave him inspiration for the “The old abandoned watchtower” in his movies. You can read the little post that they guy made on his site :

    Just thought it was cool that the castle down the road from where i live had some part to play in am iconic film !

    @JamesAVGN Watching through the older Monster Madness, there was War of the Gigantuas. You show in the beginning that the Monster attacks an octopus out of no reason, and the octupus is never mentioned again. Now you show in this Trivia a alternate ending from the “first” movie, where the monster is killed by an octopus. The same maybe? Second movie a revenge? Just some thoughts in a boring night in austria.

    As I was saying, I’ve never heard this book, but it has trivia about the classic horror films. Many of these are some mistakes in one of the answers who didn’t help as much. This ain’t no TV quiz shows like the “$64,000 Question” and “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” this is a book of horror trivia. This book was made in 1975, the same year my brother was born, and also the same year that my GE Wildcat record player was manufactured. Mike was the game show host and James was the contestant. Looks like if you get the questions right, you win a “New Car” or a “Trip for 4 to Walt Disney World and Disneyland” and a bunch of prizes. Nice video.

    That’s funny you mention the Bride of Frankenstein resembling Marge Simpson’s hair. Remember the Simpsons episode where Homer was on a hunger strike (titled Hunger, Hungry Homer)? Early in the episodes, he helps Marge get two free hair streaks. The streaks in her hair look suspiciously like the streaks in the Brides hair. I never made the connection until you said that!

    I really liked in this Trivia video the visuals you used for questions. For me it was more entertaining than the earlier trivia videos.

    It’s a lot of work, but you guys should make a horror trivia book. I am sure you would make less mistakes and do some research and I am sure you can think of some very hard questions.
