31 Days of Halloween: Can You Survive A Horror Movie?

Hello There! And welcome to my 31 Days of Halloween Series.

I originally posted this game in my Halloween Party Games post, but it’s so much fun that I wanted to highlight it in an individual one.  The name of this game is … “Have you Learned Anything from Horror Movies? from My Ghoul Friday.

Personally I would kill (not literally … lol) at this game because I’ve seen so many.  It’s also fun to see what scenarios people come up with who don’t particularly watch scary movies.

I’m not listing my answers to these questions, simply because it would be like a cheat sheet.  These answers are up for debate or suggestion, and because you break up into teams, your speaker or master of ceremonies has the final say.

So here are the game objectives and rules.

How to Play … Game Rules

Select someone to be a “Master of Ceremonies” or speaker.  Break the party guests into equal groups. Each team should nominate one person to be their speaker. They can change this speaker at any time but note that only one person can answer the question.

Once the question is asked to the entire group, each team will work together with their members to produce an original and resourceful response to the question. They must explain why they chose this answer (sometimes it is the explanation that can make or break a winning answer).

They have 30 seconds to brainstorm with their team (you can adjust this time limit for certain questions if needed, but 30 seconds generally is enough time).

You may wish to give each team a pen and paper to take notes. When time is up, there is no more talking or writing (especially if the other teams have started giving their answers). Any team caught talking or writing after time is up is disqualified from that round.

Each team representative answers the question. Rotate which team gets to answer first. The most creative, horror-movie-knowledge-based answer wins the point.

Have you learned anything from horror movies … Questions?

Question 1

You are with a group of people going on vacation. Your car runs out of gas in the middle of nowhere. It’s getting dark. You can’t get a signal on your cell phone. There was little to be seen on this deserted road as you traveled, except an old house that looked abandoned, a gas station, a little girl running a lemonade stand, and an amusement park. What do you do?

Question 2

You are looking to buy a house. What important information should you find out about the property before you buy it?

Question 3

What is the number one sign that it is time to move out of your current house?

Question 4

You are running from a monster through the woods. Having watched many horror films, you know you should expect certain things to happen as you try to getaway. Name two of them and tell me what actions you should take to increase your chance of staying alive if they happen.

Question 5

While exploring an abandoned building, your companion finds a dusty old book with leather binding and what might be Latin writing carved into the spine. After he comments on the pretty inverted star with an image of a goat’s head in the center of the cover, what should you do?

Question 6

You hear a noise in the house. You decide to investigate what caused it and discover it was only the cat. What should you do?

Question 7

If the power has just gone out, what is the worst room to search?

Question 8

To escape a crazy man in a nondescript pale mask, you enter an old farmhouse through the storm doors of the cellar. You manage to lock the storm doors from the inside, but when you look up the stairs to the doorway leading to the main level, you realize it has no door to bar. What do you do?

Question 9

Finish this statement and explain your answer: “Never stand in, on, above,  below, beside or anywhere near a…” what?

Question 10

While walking along the beach, your friend found an antique necklace and has been wearing it proudly each day during the cottage vacation. Lately, they’re sleeping more, looking pale, wincing at bright lights, and at dinner, they surprise you by speaking another language you didn’t know they had studied. What do you do?

Question 11

You are watching television. The image flickers and loses its cable connection. You notice an image is slowing emerging from the static on the screen. Your friend happily exclaims “Oh good! The picture is coming back.” What do you do?

Question 12

You have just shot the crazed psychopath 5 times (twice in the head, twice in the chest, and once in the leg). He has fallen dead on the floor. What do you do?

Question 13

There is a corpse in a coffin. Buried with it are a rosary, a dead cat, a dagger and a wilted rose. You have to take something. What do you take?

Question 14

A monster is chasing you. To your left is your car, to your right is your house, and straight ahead is your neighbor’s home. Where DON’T you go?

Question 15

You are babysitting. The killer keeps calling you on the phone. What should you do?

Question 16

Five of you are trapped in a large mansion with something that has already killed off your other companions. You’ve managed to find 3 flashlights, a baseball bat and of course the switchblade your creepy friend always brings with him on trips for some reason. You are all in a bedroom on the second floor planning your next move. What is your plan?

Question 17

Zombies have risen from the dead. Where is the best place to survive this sudden apocalypse? (Note: you must remain on earth)

Question 18

Excluding sports equipment, tools (power or otherwise, including axes), and knives, what is the best household item to use as a weapon against a flesh-and-blood monster?

Question 19

Your group, being stalked by vicious creatures, has decided to split up. You HAVE to pair up with one of them. Which one do you pick as your partner: the science geek, the jock, the cheerleader, the hoodlum, or the quiet pale girl?

Question 20

Taking into consideration all of the horror films ever made, who or what would be the most dangerous, scariest person/creature to have to fight off or escape from?
