"Great party, isn't it?"

I haven't done one of these in a while. A good ole fun movie quote trivia game. Impress your fellow readers and, most importantly, me by guessing which movie these quotes are from. I'll post the correct responses as the day progresses and tomorrow I'll post the answers for the ones that no one gets. Fun, fun, fun!!! Oh, and there is a theme this time around...
  • 1) "Something that one lives with like an albatross round the neck. No, more like a millstone. A plumbing stone, by God! Damn them all!" The Fog
  • 2) "Just look at the face: it's vacant, with a hint of sadness. Like a drunk who's lost a bet." Shaun of the Dead
  • 3) "Suicide is like... the ultimate fuck you." Ginger Snaps - White Rabbit
  • 4) "What's the matter, kid? Don't ya like clowns?" The Devil's Rejects - Dave2
  • 5) "I'm going to do something now they used to do in Vietnam. It's called making a head on a stick." Wolf Creek
  • 6) "What the hell is this blue jelly shit all over my shit?" The Blair Witch Project
  • 7) "Where we're going... we don't need eyes to see!" Event Horizon
  • 8) "I don't know, my parents told me never to breathe anything from strangers." Night of the Comet
  • 9) "She's gonna cry, then I'm gonna cry, and we're all gonna cry!" The Craft
  • 10) "Caleb, those people back there, they wasn't normal. Normal folks, they don't spit out bullets when you shoot 'em, no sir." Near Dark - badgerdaddy
  • 11) "If you were going to take over the world, would you blow up the White House 'Independence Day' style, or sneak in through the back door?" The Faculty - Slyde
  • 12) "I HATE a guy with a car and no sense of humor." Halloween - Poppy
  • 13) "This isn't the Republicans versus the Democrats, where we're in a hole economically or... or we're in another war. This is more crucial than that. This is down to the line, folks, this is down to the line. There can be no more divisions among the living!" Dawn of the Dead (original) - badgerdaddy
  • 14) "A man walks into a bar with a giraffe. They both get pissed. The giraffe falls over. The man goes to leave and the bartender says, "Oi. You can't leave that lyin' there." And the man says, "No. It's not a lion. It's a giraffe."" 28 Days Later
  • 15) "Okay hard drinkers, let's drink hard. I'm buyin'" From Dusk 'Til Dawn - Sybil Law
  • 16) "No tracks, no sign, no spoor... you'd think after eating all those sheep they'd have to take a dump *some*place" Tremors - Slyde
  • 17) "I feel like the proto-human coming out of the forest primeval and seeing the moon for the first time and throwing rocks at it." Poltergeist
  • 18) "Reach anybody? We're a thousand miles from nowhere, man. And it's gonna get a hell of a lot worse before it gets any better!" The Thing - badgerdaddy
Bonus questions: As I always do, the title of this post (The Shining - Sybil Law) is also a quote from a film. As it the line in the footnote below (Salem's Lot - badgerdaddy). Dig?
Note: Remember to play the Badgerdaddy Trivia Challenge every day. "You'll sleep with the dead, teacher."

Dave2 - My deepest, heart-felt admiration. Gigli and Glitter in the same comment? Genius! Oh, and you got one of them right. ;)

badgerdaddy said...

I think the footnote is from Salem's Lot, and number 10 is from Near Dark. I'll be back to try again later...

savannah said...

not a clue! xoxox

vw: rested

Paticus said...

Wow. Nice work Earl...On first pass, I recognize 1(#10), and badgerdaddy already guessed it.
I'll be curious to see how many of these I have seen.

RW said...

These are from movies?

Verdant Earl said...

badgerdaddy - well done. As usual. I figured you would know the 'salem's Lot quote.

Savannah - Yeah, this was a hard one.

Paticus - Some are obscure, some are obvious. You've definitely seen some of them.

RW - Every one of them.

Slyde said...

11) is The Falulty

i know i know 16) too... Tremors?

Verdant Earl said...

Slyde - yes and yes!

hello haha narf said...

fuck if i know!

clearly i need to see more movies. or you need to get out more often.

badgerdaddy said...

Some of these are on the tip of my tongue. Is 18 From Dusk til Dawn?

badgerdaddy said...

Hang on. 13's got to be a zombie movie, so it has to be Dawn of the Dead, and I'm betting it's the original as I watched the remake again a couple of nights ago.

And scratch my suggestion for 18. It's The Thing. I can't believe I got that wrong right off the bat, but it was nagging and nagging in my brain...

badgerdaddy said...

Is 3 Heathers?

Verdant Earl said...

Becky - Well, I definitely need to get out more. But these are all horror flicks, and you no likey them.

badger - Yes on 13 and 18, no on 3. But good guess. As I just said, these are all horror flicks. Heathers is more of a black comedy.

sybil law said...

You just like to make me look stupid, don't you?
I think I know the title - from "The Shining"?
And maybe number 15- "From Dusk Til Dawn". Clooney was my thing before Mr. Grohl. :)

Verdant Earl said...

Sybil - Yes on both guesses. Well done!

badgerdaddy said...

Is 14 An American Werewolf in London?

Great WV - rhech

white rabbit said...

3 is Ginger Snaps - beyind that, haven't the faintest idea.

Verdant Earl said...

badger - No, it isn't.

Wabbit - I thought no one was gonna get that one. Well done!

Poppy said...

I suck at this game, but I recognized one:

"I HATE a guy with a car and no sense of humor." -----> HALLOWEEN!

Verdant Earl said...

Poppy - it was KILLING ME that no one had guessed that yet. Kudos! :)

Bruce Johnson said...

Since I am not a fan of the horror genre....I will suck donkey balls at this trivia challenge...so I won't even try to embarass myself here.

Verdant Earl said...

Bruce - good call. Be afraid of the quiz. Be very afraid...

i am the diva said...

sadly i don't know much about horror movies...

Verdant Earl said...

Diva - very sad. :(

limpy99 said...

I think the one about where we're going we don't need to eyes to see is from "Pitch Black", but I could be wrong. Very, very wrong.

Slyde said...

i KNOW i know 17. cant quite grasp it though...

Verdant Earl said...

Limpy - You are wrong, but not "very wrong". It is a sci-fi/horror flick, but not Pitch Black.

Slyde - I'm so ashamed of you. You should also know 2, 5, 8 and 14. No doubt.
