(Note: I had to break this up into two posts, other content is in post below!!)
I thought I would change things up for tonight. This evening Economic Disconnect is featuring a contest.
I am going to post either a iconic picture from a horror film or creepy music from a horror film and your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to correctly identify the film from which the submission is featured. Example, suppose I post this picture:
You would know the answer is "Friday the 13th". The music selections may be a bit harder to place, but hey, life is not easy!
Submit your answer sheet to me via the newly created email for the blog listed at the left under "contact information". It is just this blogs name at gmail.com.
-Most correct answers wins
-Ties broken by time of submission, though I understand some may not read this post until later tomorrow so I will have to have some leeway on this
-You can resubmit if lightning strikes and you think of an answer
The winner (there may be more than one, it depends) can pick from:
-Barry Ritholtz book "Bailout Nation"
-Christopher Steiners novel "$20 Per Gallon"
-Poul Andersons "Tau Zero"
-Robert Heinlein's "The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress"
-A free 1 year subscription to Economic Disconnect (joke!)
-I have been known to locate a silver bullion ounce from time to time
-A guest post spot for a blog (I will publish your submission in full so long as it meets blogger decency rules and is not vulgar)
Not too shabby!
I am choosing horror genre films, but they may include sci-fi horror, psychological horror, or other such cross overs so do not stick to just basic horror classics!
Ok, on to the contest!
Item #1: This one is a practical give away, but I thought I would build your confidence!:
Item #4: This song is featured in a chilling scene, name the film:
Item #5: A bit harder, this picture is not a screen capture, but a perfect rendering from a classic film:
Item #6: This WILL be the deciding factor I think (unreal obscure). The next song was featured in a horror film at a major moment and has stuck with me ever since. Only hint: think of the season this song may be playing! Good luck!:
Item #7: This is a quote from a sci-fi horror film, no cheating by google, we are on an honor system!:
"We'd better get back, because it'll be dark soon, and they mostly come at night...mostly."
Item #8: The final question!
This will be movie trivia! Again, easy to find on the Internets, but really that is cheap and easy, who are you, the banks?
What horror film was centered around a subplot of asbestos insulation removal?
In the book (not in the film) "The Silence of the Lambs" Dr. Lector gives the identity of the killer "Buffalo Bill" in written form, but what did he really spell out in an anagram?
Have a good night!
