Horror Movies 

It’s a ritual that doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, but every October most of us will pay a ridiculous amount of money to dress up in costumes, eat enough candy to trigger a diabetic coma, and look forward to having the crap scared out of us. I don’t know why this is fun. It just is. In keeping with this bizarre human behavior, I’ve listed quotes from iconic horror movies and books below. See if you can guess where they come from. Some are easy, some surprising. Answers are at the bottom. Have fun!     

1.  “When there is no room left in hell, the dead will walk the earth.”

 2. “One-stop shopping: everything you need, right at your fingertips.”

3. “It’s Alive! It’s Alive!”

4. “I never thought I’d be so happy to be a virgin.”

5. “We came, we saw, we kicked its ass!”

6. “Drink from me.”

7. “I’m your number one fan.”

8. “Sometimes dead is better.”

9. “They’re coming to get you, Barbara.”

10. “Whoever would have guessed a hangover was so conducive to the psychic emanations of the universe?”

 11. “We all go a little mad sometimes.”

12. “I know you’re there Tina. Because I can smell your brains.”

13.  “Heeeeeeeeere’s Johnny!”

14.  “I see dead people.”

15.  “I hope that someone remembered to bring something really useful, like a machine gun.”

16. “The way you walked was thorny, through no fault of your own, but as the rain enters the soil, the river enters the sea, so tears run to a predestined end. Your suffering is over, Bela my son. Now you will find peace.”

17. “You know that part in scary movies when somebody does something really stupid and everyone hates them for it? This is it.”

18. “We just cut up our girlfriend with a chainsaw. Does that sound ‘fine’?”

19. “No, thanks. I’ve already had a wife.”

20. “I want you to believe…to believe in things that you cannot.”

21. “One thing about living in Santa Carla I never could stomach, all the damn vampires.”

22. “I wanna play a game.”

23.”Trust is a tough thing to come by these days.”

24. “We medicals have a better way than that. When we dislike a friend of ours, we dissect him.”

25. “You must know that I am made of death, from head to foot, and it is a corpse who loves you and adores you and will never, never leave you.”

    Surprisingly, I didn’t know many of them. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or not. Love the line: “I see dead people.” That movie rocked!

    • At first I was surprised at how many I knew, but my son is a Halloween junkie (he’s 40 now) and when he was growing up he watched all the horror movies over and over again. I must have absorbed them through osmosis. Have a great Halloween!

      • Jack Flacco says:

        Funny how our childhood influences who we are when we’re all grown up. I’m kidding, of course! But I remember watching a lot of horror movies, yet most of the time, I don’t remember half the lines in those films. It takes a very special person not to forget so many quotes. A very special person, indeed!

      • Ha! It isn’t a particularly valuable ability. My son can quote every line from every Star Wars movie made. I’m pretty sure his wife would rather he forget the dialogue and remember to take out the trash.

  2. What a fun idea, Diane. My favorite was #17. I love the movie Jeepers Creepers & I’m looking forward to #3 soon to be released (Cathedral) but I especially love the dark humor that writer/director Victor Salva used in it. You have the perfect example right here!! Another great line from Jeepers Creepers 2 (“We have just dropped a notch on the fu**ing food chain, man.”) lol Sharing this Halloween quiz right now so others can enjoy!! Oh, & Happy Halloween!! xo 😉
