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: http://www.okcupid.com/tests/how-long-would-you-survive-in-a-horror-film
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. 🙂
