This week’s Chilling Challenge is an easy one, but I think you’ll enjoy it!
One of my favorite pastimes is looking over the trivia sections on IMDB. I can easily spend hours doing that, researching movies I’ve seen, movies I want to see, and movies I know I’ll never see.
So let’s take a hint from that. Search through IMDB, and report back with an interesting trivia tidbit about a movie, show or TV special. Obviously, the trivia should be about Halloweeny movies and shows!
You can do up to 3 different trivia tidbits, if you like. I’ll start:
Friday the 13th Part III:
In the original ending, Chris rows back to shore and begins walking towards the house. She suddenly hears a noise from the house, and thinking it’s Rick, begins to run to the porch of the house. Once she arrives at the front door, it suddenly bursts open and Jason emerges, to the surprise of Chris. Jason then grabs Chris by the hair and chops her head off with a machete.
It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown:
When writing a letter to the Great Pumpkin, Linus states, “You must get discouraged because more people believe in Santa Claus than in you. Well, let’s face it; Santa Claus has had more publicity, but being #2, perhaps you try harder.” This is a reference to an advertising slogan for Avis Rent-a-Car that was well known in the 1960s.
A Nightmare on Elm Street 3:
At around the 38 minute mark, Jennifer (Penelope Sudrow) is watching the movie Critters.
Your turn! Search IMDB for interesting pieces of trivia about movies, shows or TV specials with some tie to the Halloween season. Report back with your findings!
