Great quiz! A lot of fun, and one of the better uses of the clickable format I've seen so far.
Apr 12th, 2012 at 23:44 GMT
Really fun quiz, as always, but I wanted to read and enjoy each description and felt slightly rushed.

Wonder what the descript. wdve been for "Alien"?
Nov 6th, 2012 at 17:09 GMT
Too many Godzilla monsters, otherwise a good mix of mosters from many genres.
Nov 6th, 2012 at 17:15 GMT
Jaws isn't the name of the shark, it's the name of the film.
Nov 6th, 2012 at 17:44 GMT
@MadameRay, that's actually true that the movie's script dialogue never refers to the shark as "Jaws" by name, but since it became an icon it's been adopted as such with the phrase "here comes Jaws".
Nov 6th, 2012 at 18:15 GMT
"Extraterrestrial lifeform that assimilates..." made me search futilely for Borgs.
Nov 6th, 2012 at 19:15 GMT
That definition for ogres could work for trolls also.
Nov 6th, 2012 at 19:37 GMT
Nice quiz, really enjoyed it!!!
Nov 6th, 2012 at 19:39 GMT
Agree regarding ogres/trolls...the portrayals are too similar to have in the same quiz. Still a good one, though!

I'm pretty sure I've heard the name of the shark from Jaws is Bruce.
Nov 6th, 2012 at 22:43 GMT
Freddy Kruger, Michael Myers and Jason Voorhees are impossible to differentiate, for me. I hated those slasher movies and I can never seem match the freak to the flick.
