King Kebab's Film Quiz

Recommended Posts

With Cardinal Richelieu's hoor of a quiz over, the new season of the Film Quiz, in the second year of its two-year sponsorship by King Kebab, will be starting very soon. Most of you know the drill already, but here's a quick run-through of the basics:

The quiz is weekly. Generally the rounds will be posted each Saturday with a deadline of midnight the following Friday. It's a mixed ability quiz so the questions will be of mixed difficulty. Usually there will be a theme to each round and, as ever, guest rounds are more than welcome so if you wish to host or submit a round of your own feel free to PM me.

The rules:

Answers should be sent in a PM to me- please start a new PM each week as I will be deleting my PMs regularly.

Deadlines are as per the P&B clock and are not negotiable. Answers sent within half an hour after the deadline will be counted but will be penalised with a 1 point deduction.

For people's names I'm looking for first and last names for full marks. I won't be fussy on spelling. For foreign films I'll accept either the English or the "local" name.

The quiz is meant to be contested in good faith, and there is no prize, so please don't cheat.

Round 1 will be posted this weekend. All welcome.

Round 2: Scream Queens

There’s a reason I waited until daylight to do this round.

Horror is possibly my least favourite film genre. Not because I don’t find them entertaining or impressive, but because so many of the masterpieces in the genre are so terrifying. A good horror will give me nightmares for months. I refuse to watch most of these ones alone. I was in a cold sweat last night just preparing the round. I had to watch about two hours of sitcoms to calm myself down, and still had a horrible night of spooky dreams.

Pictured below are ten female characters from great horror movies. Some of them are much worse than scream queens. All you need to do this time is name the film.

Good luck, and for goodness' sake don't eat cheese at night this week.

Four?!??! Utter pish :(

Can't believe you didn't give Kill Bill volume 2.

Harrumph. Still, at first glance I know at least 3 of the films so that's a small comfort.

Only certain of 1, 8 and 10 but taken a few guesses which could bump up the score. Annoyed I missed the first round as I would've done okay (ie. not been last anyway).

Sent, had to guess at number 3, just couldn't get it, but the annoying thing is, I'm pretty sure I've picked the DVD of this film up in a shop and had a good look at it, as I recognise the photo and reckon it's on the back of the box!!!

7. Creepy, creepy Ruth Gordon in Rosemary's Baby.

(Note- "Let Me In" was the American re-make, and Lina Leandersson wasn't in it. 0 pts for that I'm afraid)
