How Long Would YOU Survive in a Horror Movie?

Okay, I was planning on writing an insightful and brilliant post (yes, I’m on my delusional meds today…) about romance and the various subgenres within, but after being sent this link to my current favorite online quiz, I had to post this and my results instead.  And if the link above doesn’t work, go here:

My result for How Long Would you Survive in a Horror Film? by Monday_Mourning …  THE KILLER!!!   68% Chance of Survival!!!

You would think the hero/heroine would out survive the villain, but that’s rarely the reality in a horror film. Sure, when they tossed your body through that meat grinder and cooked your severed head in battery acid it looked like you were done for good, but the chances of the killer staying dead forever are extremely slim. Ok, so you’ll probably be stabbed, shot, burned, run over and even exorcised at some point but as the star of the movie, you’ll always find a way to come back.


Congratulations! This is the highest score you could have gotten!


Some villains you should look to for inspiration: Pinhead from the Hellraiser series; Pennywise, IT; The Firefly Family, House of 1000 Corpses; Krug, Junior, Weasel and Sadie, Last House on the Left; and Angela Baker, Sleepaway Camp

What do I take aways frm this?  All those years of watching horror movies have not been in vain and yes, I AM capable of learning!  And my friends and family probably should worry a little bit about now…

Marvin, I fully expect you to take this test and post the results.  🙂

  1. Zhadi, oh, ZAAAAAYDEEE – am I just being a ditz? Take what test? I clicked on the link Monday_Mourning and it took me to this Cupid site where I can find swinging singles to date. Now look – I’m married and you have a steady – we really have to stop meeting this way.

    Love you, girlfriend (smiles, hugs & smooches, but that’s as far as it can go – lol)

  2. I came up as The Black Guy (46% chance of survival), which is interesting because I’m a white woman, but I’m married to a black guy. The test does describe The Black Guy as the most sane person in the movie, but the one who usually gets killed first.

    If I were in a horror movie, it would last ten minutes. At the first odd noise, I would NOT go outside in my negligee, carrying a candle, to investigate. I would lock all the doors, turn on all the lights, call 911, then proceed to the kitchen, where I would arm myself with every sharp object in the drawer. I know, I’m no fun at all.

  3. Sigh, gasp, wheeze, choking out my last breath – I’m the “Jock/Cheerleader” – scored 24, higher than absolutely no one else, and the first to die.

    but at least I stood up to the shithead!!!

  4. Well a 38% survival rate is better than nothing. But placing as jock/cheerleader? I think I’ve been insulted. Oh yeah, but this IS a test of who has the best chance of surviving a horror movie whose scriptwriters/producers are probably sadistic AND dumber than the average Frankenstein.
    As an inspiring villain, how about Ob (The Rising, City Of The Dead), Or the Shonokins, (Manly Wade Wellman’s “elder race” in the John Thunstone stories)?

  5. Sorry about the repeat. Stupid computer glitch! Delete the first attempt please. It shouldn’t happen again. Sorry.

  6. First off, I want to say I had enough wine to make the test results at least plausible. But crap, the cheerleader? The CHEERLEADER? Really?

    Second, I think the only recourse is another glass of pinot. And a do-over.

  7. ha, i’m the jock/cheerleader and die first. This sooo doesn’t suprise me, I hope I am neve rin a horror movie. 😉

  8. Hah! Lisa, it’s obviously genetic.

    Gayle, my boyfriend was the Black Guy too. I’m not sure if he’s relieved or scared that I’m the killer. And I think your plan is a very sound one! You’ll be fine unless it’s one of those Japanese GRUDGE type movies.

    Marvin and Jack…ah me, I’ve got the giggles… At least you have a choice between JOck and CHeerleader. Imagine if you didn’t? Ob is Brian Keene’s villain, right? Speaking of zombie novels, I just finished THE MORNINGSTAR VIRUS: Thunder and Ashes, and it was excellent. AND it gave me a zombie nightmare! Sweet!

    Awww, Cath, try taking it again without the wine. I took it at work stone cold sober.

    Adele, you too? Dang me, I guess I want to hang around you all during a horror movie type situation ’cause you’re all gonna be a bunch of red shirts. Other than Lisa. Heeee…

  9. I’ve been going to the wrong site, Dana, and wondering why you weren’t changing your Halloween page. I’m not a fan of horror books or films. They give me nigtmares but I do scare up some horror for my novel characters (as long as it doesn’t scare me). I think I would probably get a minus 10 on your test. Sorry!
