It’s that time of the year when we horror fans can boast about our favourite fright flicks and show off our horror film knowledge without fear of being classed as ‘weirdos’ – and we love it.

Well, Studiocanal have joined in the fun for Halloween this year by setting their very own online film quiz via their facebook page at:

Hit that link and one of the things you’ll be presented with is a one-minute monster mash that features rapid clips from 20-plus horror flicks – some new, some old – from all over the world.

We were able to nail most of them, but some left us scratching our heads, so why not take the challenge for yourself?

Better still, like tha page and you’ll keep in the loop regarding all the info for their old and upcoming releases, as well as plenty more scary fun.

To celebrate the launch, Studiocanal have provided us with a pack of three DVDs to give away, which feature genre classics The Wicker Man, Hammer’s Dracula Prince Of Darkness and the seminal Night Of The Living Dead.


To enter, answer the following question:

Which actor appeared as the central villain in both The Wicker Man and Dracula Prince of Darkness?

Email your answers to by Saturday, November 1.
