31 Days of Halloween: Day #26 … Have You Learned Anything From Scary Movies?
Hello friends and welcome back to my 31 Days of Halloween series. Today is Day #26, and I’m sharing a fun game for the season.
It’s the home stretch and the last week of my Halloween series. I have had so much fun, even though this series requires a little more work, it’s all worth it.
Today I’m sharing a fun Halloween game called … Have You Learned anything from scary movies.
Personally, I would kill (not literally … lol) at this game because I’ve seen so many horror movies (or maybe that’s just in my head). It’s also fun to see what scenarios people come up with who don’t particularly watch scary movies.
There are no right or wrong scenarios in this game as the Host/Moderator decides the answer. Note: This games opens up the discussion of what it would really take to survive a scary movie. We’ve played this game with 4 people a few years ago, so my recommendation is a minimum of 4 broken up into teams. I’ve also created a printable that you can download here.
This original game is from My Ghoul Friday, but I have made adjustments to the questions.
How to Play … Have You Learned Anything From Scary Movies?
Select someone to be a “Master of Ceremonies” or speaker. (NOTE: Make sure your host is the scary movie master. You can’t judge if you haven’t seen anything) You will need at least
3 4 people to play minus including your Master of Ceremonies (host). If you have more than 4 people break everyone into 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 group has
30-seconds 3 minutes to brainstorm an answer. The time can be adjusted as needed by the moderator. Teams will work together to produce an original and resourceful response to the question.
Each team representative answers the question. Inevitably there may be some duplicate responses. The moderator can then ask why your team chose this answer to break the tie. The moderator (or host) determines the most creative, horror-movie-knowledge-based answer and chooses the winner for that round. The teams that get the most rounds WINS.
Moderator can also rotate which team (or person) answers first.
Here we go!
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?
You are looking to buy a house. What important information should you find out about the property before you buy it?
What is the number one sign that it is time to move out of your current house?

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?
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?
If the power has just gone out, what is the worst room to search?
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?
Finish this statement and explain your answer: “Never stand in, on, above, below, beside or anywhere near a…” what?
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?
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?
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?
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?
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?
You are babysitting. The killer keeps calling you on the phone. What should you do?
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 because 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?
Zombies have risen from the dead. Where is the best place to survive this sudden apocalypse? (Note: you must remain on earth)
