Movie Trivia Challenge for Week 01.24.2011

“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 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) using the steps 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 (01/24/2011) 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 31, 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 way 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 (01/24) 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):

    I’ll take a guess at E – The Great Outdoors.

    No ideas on the M’s – look forward to seeing the answer on the second M

    Is M manhatten murder mystery?

      Nice try Mags. If it makes you feel any better, I couldn’t figure them out… and I had the freakin’ answers! 😉

    Just off the top of my head, the A is definitely The Abyss, The first M looks kinda like Manhattan. Second M perhaps Demonic Toys? And the final E looks like The Sting. I don’t know about the C.

      Hi Will and thanks for playing! You got The Abyss and you were close with the 2nd M (well, it was from a cheezy monster movie anyway). Thanks for playing! 🙂

        Dammit Great Outdoors! I trained for this moment, staring at that box throughout my childhood, but it still wasn’t enough.

          Will– I hate it when that happens! 🙂

    Thank you for confirming I’m a geek – Abyss and Cannonball Run were relatively easy – Great Outdoors? Somethings wrong with my brain.

    • January 24, 2011 at 9:41 pm

      You did fantastic! And nothing’s wrong with your brain… the mind of a movie geek is a vast, enigmatic super-structure. It’s better not to question it as some mysteries, like the deepest secrets of the universe, defy explanation. 🙂

    you, my friend, are what they call an enabler.

    Yes, yes I am… 🙂
