About This Quiz

For many horror movie aficionados, there are many points to a good scare. While special effects and makeup play a massive factor, it's easy to identify situations that heroes find themselves in. Think about it.  You're hired to babysit your neighbor's child on Halloween. But it isn't just a typical Halloween: there's an insane serial killer on the loose, and soon you're defending yourself and your ward from the monster out on its rampage. Of course, it is the monsters who tend to steal the spotlight and cause the fans to cheer them on.

Not all monsters have pleasant origins though. Take one of the first werewolves put on film: The Wolfman. Written by Curt Siodmak, a German Jew with Polish roots, who escaped the Nazis in the 1930s, many people theorize that this film is not only a fun romp with a werewolf but a depiction of the alienation that many Jews faced because of the Nazis before and during World War II.

Maybe it's the shared experience of getting scared silly, but once you're a horror fan, you will be bound to befriend others and want to live the experience over and over again. But which kind of movie would you want to see? Let's help you make your decision by seeing what monster matches your soul.
