Can you solve these real 'Jeopardy!' clues about horror movies?

Stacker Logo By Jacob Osborn of Stacker | Slide 1 of 51: Combining two timeless traditions, Stacker has compiled a list of real “Jeopardy!” clues about horror movies. Anyone who’s seen the popular game show knows the drill: the question takes the form of an answer, and the answer takes the form of a question. A tad gimmicky perhaps, but it’s kept this machine running in daily syndication for 37 seasons straight—and that doesn’t include previous iterations, which ran for years at a time and didn’t feature Alex Trebek as host. Nowadays, one can’t imagine the show without him. While digging through the “Jeopardy” archives in search of choice clues, Stacker uncovered a few blatant trends. One is that Alex Trebek isn’t necessarily the world’s biggest horror fan. When the category “Scary Movie Sequels” appeared on the board, Trebek exclaimed, “Aren’t they all?!” He might have a point, but it still hurts. Another conspicuous trend? The show’s writers are definitely partial to two specific musical horror comedies. The films won’t be named just yet, and for obvious reasons, but here’s a hint: One is about a deadly plant, and the other still draws an occasional midnight crowd. Throughout numerous years and episodes, these two titles pop up over and over...and over and over again. As a result, one might safely deduce that Trebek and his team aren’t exactly catching up on the “Hostel” franchise during their off-hours. Nitpicking aside, “Jeopardy!” has provided a fairly impressive overview of classic horror cinema by way of its categories and clues. From retro bone-chillers to recent blood-curdlers to everything in between, most of history’s biggest horror flicks have made their way onto that blue game board. Numerous contestants have put their skills to the test, and now it’s your turn. Get your brain pumped and your buzzers ready, and throw something scary on while you’re at it. ‘Tis the season, after all. Do you have what it takes to solve these real “Jeopardy!” clues about horror movies? You may also like:  87 top rated charities to support military members and their families
