How Long Would You Last in a Horror Movie? [Quiz]

How Long Would You Last in a Horror Movie?

If you're taking this quiz then you probably know a thing or two about the way horror movies go down. Yes, yes. There are different genres. We're not talking about creepy dolls like in Annabelle or Child's Play. Nor are we going to cover vengeful ghost stories (i.e., The Grudge, The Amityville Horror). Nope, we're focusing on a particular brand. You know it, it's the happy-getaway-turns-into-a-nightmare subgenre made popular with the low budget cult classics that came to fruition in the seventies.

Let's set the scene. It starts out with a van full of friends driving to the place where it's all going to go down. After a winding drive into the middle of nowhere, they all get out of the car and look at the cabin or Victorian house or eerie mansion. Someone says something along the lines of "this is going to be great...." All the while the quiet wallflower of the group is all at once intrigued and alarmed by the setting. You know the scene. It's sunny, birds are singing. The only interruption to the happy image is the impossibly dark structure in the middle of the clearing. And hey, was that someone in the top floor window?

This quiz allows you to make your own decisions so if you're the type of person who spends the movie yelling stuff like "that isn't Todd!" or "don't go upstairs!" at naive teenagers, you can finally make those decisions for yourself without getting blood on your favorite polo shirt. From the pitstop on the way to your weekend getaway to where you hide when there's a villain in your midst, every decision will help decide your fate! Maybe you'll find that surviving the night is harder than you think. Maybe it'll be a breeze. Either way, this is sure to be a quiz you remember.

Finish this heart-pounding thriller of a quiz? Whether you're a survivor or you end up as a victim before your friends are done singing Kumbaya around the campfire, share your results to find out if your co-horror movie enthusiasts fare any better than you do!
