A is for Amityville: An Alphabetical Horror Movie Quiz

ATMOSfx! Woo!
Wake up, Nancy! Falling asleep for a pop quiz could be DEADLY. Because, you know, Freddie might get you. Let’s see how well you know your second level horror titles. Get your #2 pencils ready. This is a closed book test.

A is for Amityville Horror! Or it could be Alien, or An American Werewolf in London, or Annihilation. There are so many to choose from. Let’s see how well you can identify horror movie still imagery. Your clue is that I will give you the first letter of the movie, from A to Z. We will not be including first-line iconic films like The Shining or Frankenstein. If you folks dropped in for a gimme test, you’ve got another thing coming. Ha! Yet, all of these movies have gotten wide-release and are not straight to video/streaming throwaway movies. These would all be considered next-step horror movies, so let’s see how many of them you can get.

Try and see if you can do this without going to IMDb, Wiki, or other resources. You’re on your honor! I don’t want to have to send the Babadook after you to keep you honest. Admission… I have one film in here with “The” preceding the title… but only one. That’s a second clue. OK! That’s it! No more clues! Your time begins… NOW!
