Movie Trivia Challenge for Week of 01.17.2011

“Shall we play a game?”

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

How you play the Insanely Difficult, Damn-Near Impossible Movie Trivia Challenge:

Each letter in the word picture 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 given.  Then, submit your answer(s) via the process below and you win. It’s as simple as that!

Good luck!

Recap of the rules and how to submit answers:

  • Submit your answers via Twitter to @forgottenflix (use the hashtag #movietrivia) or leave your answers in the comments section of this post.
  • Submit all answers by 8 PM (EST) today (01/17/2011) via Twitter or this post’s comments section.
  • 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 (01/17) 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):

      Hi Harleydad, Welcome! I’m not sure which letter you’re referring to, but I can tell you none of the letters for this week comes from either WARGAMES or its sequel. Thanks and stay tuned as I’m going to post hints for this week’s quiz very soon!

    T — Sometimes it takes little people to do big things… like time travel!

    R — Laurie Strode and Mike Hammer and a serial killer, oh my!

    A — “You gotta ask yourself one question… do you really want to make fun of my retro Mary Kay mobile? Well do ya, punk?”

    S — Why do I have a feeling that Neil Simon losing his virginity to a hooker played even funnier in real life?

    H — I think THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE should be required viewing in every public school; of course, so should Fabiana Udenio! (EDITOR’S NOTE: By the way, I love this damn movie and I don’t care who knows it!)
