My apologies if I've missed your favorite movie monster. I tried to stick with one per movie/franchise (which was tough for things like Star Wars and Lord of the Rings that are full of them). Let me know if I've missed an obvious alternate answer.
Oct 23rd, 2010 at 04:48 GMT
I'd recommend adding Nosferatu for an alternate of Count Orlok and possibly accepting last names for those that have them, but that's just me. Great quiz though, and the inclusion of Sully made me laugh.
Oct 23rd, 2010 at 04:54 GMT
Zombies is a poor picture I think. I thought it was children of the corn.
Oct 23rd, 2010 at 04:55 GMT
@jgd2w- Actually, that's the original zombies from the original Night of the Living Dead. Added Nosferatu; last names are already there.
Oct 23rd, 2010 at 05:00 GMT
Props for accepting "Bruce" for Jaws!
Oct 23rd, 2010 at 05:02 GMT
@trivial- props for typing it in to see if it would work!
Oct 23rd, 2010 at 05:56 GMT
Zombies seems a bit of an odd one out because it's the only movie monster here that isn't specific to to a particular film or particular film series. It's more of a type of monster like vampire or werewolf rather than a character like the rest.
Oct 23rd, 2010 at 05:58 GMT
Good observation, dummo. I think that mummies, in general, could fall into that categorization too, but there are movie-specific mummies. If someone has a suggestion of a great movie monster I've missed and could substitute in place of the zombies, I'd be happy to consider it.
Oct 23rd, 2010 at 06:13 GMT
If you're going to accept just Jason, shouldn't you accept just Freddy too?
Oct 23rd, 2010 at 06:33 GMT
Shouldn't you accept Gozer along with the form that Ray chose for it?
Oct 23rd, 2010 at 13:56 GMT
Accept only Freddy.
Oct 23rd, 2010 at 14:09 GMT
Freddy and Gozer are in. Thanks for the excellent suggestions.
Oct 23rd, 2010 at 16:17 GMT
pumpkinhead is pretty recognizable. or the leprechaun.
Oct 23rd, 2010 at 21:12 GMT
am I the only person that guessed "Garthog" for "Rancor?" As in, "you must... narfle the garthog!"
Oct 23rd, 2010 at 22:59 GMT
i typed in "mr staypuft" and "mr stay puft" before i just did "marshmallow man." I also did "Mike Myers" for quickness' sake before switching it to "Michael". Additionally I like to program in common misspellings, like Orlock = Orlok, since that pretty fairly demonstrates that the player knows the answer...Also, i did the "movie scene horror edition and movie scene comedy edition" but the embed is pretty crude. how do you program the quiz to go like this, highlighting each image one-by-one?
Oct 23rd, 2010 at 23:34 GMT
Notable omissions (perhaps for a future quiz): Pinhead, Chucky, Bride of Frankenstein, Mothra, Rodan, Pumpkinhead, and maybe one the Puppet Master puppets (Blade or Leech Woman?)
Oct 24th, 2010 at 01:37 GMT
@Junvo415- I hadn't considered "Mr. Stay Puft" but will surely add it along with "Mike Myers." Only the Sporcle site administrators can modify the quiz into this format, I don't have the ability (or technical know-how) to do that. @DaHumorist, I totally forgot Chucky- he might be a good substitute for the zombies.
Oct 24th, 2010 at 02:59 GMT
Are the odds of this getting published early in the morning on Sunday, October 31 100%, or more than 100%?
Oct 24th, 2010 at 03:16 GMT
Oct 24th, 2010 at 05:24 GMT
I think Mr. Staypuft is what Ray calls it in the movie
Oct 24th, 2010 at 22:19 GMT
Great quiz. One suggestion; accept just "Orlok" for "Count Orlok".
Oct 25th, 2010 at 00:05 GMT
How about Pazuzu/Reagan MacNeil/Satan for The Exorcist in a future quiz?
Oct 25th, 2010 at 20:51 GMT
Please include the giant worm from Tremors hahahaha
Oct 26th, 2010 at 01:46 GMT
Orlok and Mr. StayPuft added. I'd include the worm from Tremors, but I don't think it has a name.
Oct 26th, 2010 at 03:58 GMT
If there's any worm you should put in, it should be the sandworms from Dune. Regardless, great quiz!
Oct 26th, 2010 at 12:24 GMT
The worms from Tremors are called Graboids. Plus Michael Myers is also known as The Shape. Would be cool if you'd add that.
Oct 26th, 2010 at 16:50 GMT
Thought I had, Andrew_Tom, but turns out I had inserted an "r" and made him 'The Sharpe' instead. That's fixed now, thanks!
Oct 27th, 2010 at 05:31 GMT
Technically, it's Frankenstein's monster. Dr. Frankenstein is the scientist who created the monster you have pictured. Really liked this quiz, though, especially the variety :)
Oct 27th, 2010 at 05:33 GMT
Ah, I see you have that. Nevermind! But I'd be the stickler to not except just "Frankenstein" ;)
Oct 27th, 2010 at 05:38 GMT
Fair, enough, jrose, and you're absolutely right, but considering the popular use of just the good doctor's name, I'm going to stick with accepting both. Hopefully, displaying the full name will jog some people to remember it.
Oct 29th, 2010 at 18:28 GMT
Loved it! Great variety. Surprised not to see the blob, but it'd probably be tough to find a suitable photo. @hscer Agreed!
Oct 29th, 2010 at 21:15 GMT
In fact, Nikkidemas, that's exactly why it isn't here. I tried a couple of different images, but it always just looked like a dark, unidentifiable mass in the pictures. Glad you liked the quiz! (Oh, and I've added "Gothmog" as an answer on the Balrog.)

Balrog? What is it? Is the picture bad? What movie is that? Gremlin threw me off too, it looks like a dragon or the dinosaur in Jurassic Park.

Norman Bates should have taken Psycho as an answer, and Ghostface should have been taken as Scream. Thats a double stack of Lamecakes with extra Weak sauce. Other than that, good one.
Oct 31st, 2010 at 04:41 GMT
The Balrog is from The Lord of the Rings:The Fellowship of the Ring. Loved the quiz, got 'em all. Thanks Hejman, you Scary Swede!
Oct 31st, 2010 at 04:43 GMT
@Stevex21- The quiz asks for the character, you're asking it to take the movie name. @4uwbadgers- thanks! (Though, I've never been to Sweden.)
Oct 31st, 2010 at 05:03 GMT
I don't know if it's a Sporcle thing, but a larger photo would have been nice. I couldn't figure out King Kong because of the teeny-tiny photo. Just a thought.
