Legendary Horror Films Quiz
Horror as a genre has been a place for writers to explore all manner of difficult or macabre topics. Yet, the genre was considered a form of “low art” by academics and critics until quite recently.
In spite of this belittling consideration, creators didn’t stop from indulging in the trappings of those things we consider twisted and unorthodox. Part of the reason why horror has been so legitimized in recent years is because of the recognition of legendary horror classics as a part of the literary and cinematic canons.
In this quiz, we will be gazing into the abyss of the latter category to unearth some of the most beloved and influential movies of the horror genre. These are movies that frightened and delighted audiences from every age. While it’s not an exact science what can be considered horror and what can’t, we’ll be going off of general consensus to decide whether a movie counts as a horror flick.
We will ask you identify these iconic works by some of their famous characters, plots, crew members, and/or images. What’s more, there are so many famous horror movies and franchises that not all of the most recognizable works can appear in this quiz.
Instead, we’ll try to present a representative sample of horror films throughout the ages which have left an identifiable impact on film or pop culture history. As much as to test, this quiz is meant to inform. So, we hope you come out of it knowing something new.
How much do you know about the scary stories that have left a mark on Hollywood history? Take our Legendary Horror Films Quiz to find out.
