It's actually amazing how much people love horror movie trivia. These films have entertained us…and scared us to death, since 1896, when the world's first supernatural flick, “The Haunted Castle” premiered. A 3-minute short, it spooked audiences in dark theaters – sending them scrambling home to suffer vivid nightmares.

There's something mentally cleansing about a good scare that draws us to the macabre. Panic results when the “fight or flight” syndrome kicks in – and you're stuck inside a dark, crowded theater, with nowhere to run. Sure, you can cover your eyes…but you do so at your own peril, as your mind will most certainly paint an even scarier image to match the screams and haunting music.

Do you dare step into the darkness with us, to test your knowledge of horror movie trivia, by taking a mind-raking journey into the world of the supernatural..the occult…the ax and knife-wielding slashers? There's no turning back now, so buckle up, buttercup…We'll be waiting for you at the other end. Probably.
