Pop Culture Trivia #108: The Spooky Edition 2: I Have Nothing In Regards To A Clever Subtitle

For this sequel to a quiz I posted last year, it's once again all about ghosts, witches, mass murderers, etc. as all the questions have ties to the horror/thriller/fantasy/supernatural genres.

For those who have played Pop Culture Trivia in the past, there are two new rules:

1. The first person to submit their answers to me will earn 3 bonus pts. 

2. I will no longer be posting the answers (along with the names of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers) here.  Instead, I will email the answers (along with the names of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers) only to those who take the quiz.

If you are a Pop Culture Trivia virgin about to be touched for the very first time, please read the remaining rules before taking the quiz:

* Along with the Internet, the use of books, magazines, notes, data stored on a computer, etc. to help you come up with the answers is not allowed.

* Please read the questions carefully. For example, if you mistakenly give a performer's name instead of the movie/TV show, the answer will be marked as incorrect.

* If you give a final answer along the lines of "If it isn't The Stepfather, it's Mother's Day", it will be marked as incorrect.

* Unless I ask for the correct spelling, you won't lose points for any misspellings as long as I can decipher your answer. If I have no idea what you mean, I'll email you for verification. If I don't hear from you, your answer will be marked as incorrect.

* It's best to provide the full name/title of an answer if you know it. However, for TV series, movies, people, etc. that are often referred to by a shortened name/abbreviation, that shortened name/abbreviation is acceptable (unless I specifically ask for the complete name/title).

* Billboard-related questions will always refer to the U.S. charts.

* If you are the only player to get a particular question correct, you earn 5 bonus points

* Please do not post your answers in the comments section. Instead, send them to no later than Friday, October 29th at 11:59 PM EST.

* To make it easier for me to add up your score, please cut and paste the game into the body of an email and type your answers after the point value of each question.

Have fun, good luck, and don't look behind you!
