20622453Are you obsessed with horror? Do you think you know more about horror movies than all your friends? Do you want to see how much you really know about horror. The ultimate horror trivia book is here horror fans. 666 Hair-Raising Horror Movie Trivia Questions by James Newman is the book you need to test your knowledge on your favorite genre. This book is a lot of fun and will stump the most hard core horror fanatic.

666 Hair-Raising Horror Movie Trivia Questions is set up into 7 sections including Vampires, Zombies, Werewolves,  Murderers and Maniacs, Ghosts and Demons, It Came From Beyond and Miscellaneous Mayhem. These 666 questions are for the hard core horror fan only,  even with giving multiple choice answers I still had a hard time getting the answers right.

In the intro of the book James Newman talks about how he has always been obsessed with horror. He writes horror, he wears horror movie T-shirts and is constantly watching horror films. He also goes on to say how he got into horror and points out that he is still a normal guy with a normal family. He may be a normal guy but he is also a walking horror encyclopedia. One thing I got out of this book was that I have a lot to learn about horror and I need to watch more horror movies. He has different categories that he puts you in depending on how many you got right and I unfortunately landed in the In a Horror Film You Would Be The Last To Die Category. I’m ashamed and will have to start watching more horror and then read this book again to redeem myself. If you ever wondered how good your knowledge of horror trivia is then you need to get this book  but watch a lot of horror movies first.

Another book I want to mention that I bought but haven’t started 15698108reading yet is: Night Of The Scream Queen by Michael McCarty and Linnea Quigley.  Scream Queen Desiree Starr is tired of starring in one low budget horror movie after another, each passing film, her wardrobe becomes skimpier and skimpier. Private Martin Riley, a simple solider from Iowa is recruited for “Operation Reptilian”, a dangerous experiment where he is suppose to become a “Solider of the Future”–but he becomes something else entirely different. Dr. Morrie Madden, a military “mad scientist” who has played God one too many times. Aging British actor Blake Smith, once a leading man in horror films, but that was before his face started to deteriorate and now has to wear masks in public. All their lives become intersected and a hell breaks loose in the Devil Bayou swamplands.

18046495The last book I want to talk about is by Mark McLaughlin: Welcome to the Best Little Witch-House in Arkham! In this midnight den of dread and doom, you will find twenty-five rooms, each with a story of its own to tell. Here you will enjoy a delectable variety of otherworldly nightmares and blasphemies … enough to satisfy even your most eldritch desires.

Here you will find evil pop-stars longing to devour their fans. You will meet a sophisticated secret agent in search of supernatural super-villains.
 You will learn the vile secrets of Kugappa, the writhing octopus-god, and Ghattambah, a grotesque insect deity whose soul dwells beyond time.
     
 You will smell the unhallowed stench of the Odour out of the Terrible Old Man. You will drink the creamy Milk of Time, an unholy substance which flows through the depths of a forbidden house of horrors known as Der Fleischbrunnen. You will even travel through deep space to a futuristic restaurant for alien connoisseurs, where you will sink your teeth into the monstrous specialty of the house.
You will find all of these horrors, and so much more … in the Best Little Witch-House in Arkham
