26/27. I think that spelling an owl's noise as "hoot" is subjective. I know I'm not alone in learning they make a "who" sound. They don't even have the ability to make a T sound because of the way their tongue works! I also understand that for the purpose of this quiz you need an "H" word, so please accept "hoo/hu".

Definitely. I have never in my life heard anyone say that owls go “hoot”. It’s always been “hoo” or “who”

There was a prominent ad campaign in the US during the 80's encouraging people not to litter. The commercial featured an owl and their slogan was "Give a hoot, don't pollute". Anyone growing up during that time remembers it well.

"Like some houses" Couldn't get that one. Even new it started with an H. Neighbor hood? Nope. Got all the others. IMO need better clue.

I had to type out the quote before getting that one - I tried crypt, mausoleum, grave, coffin, casket, then finally realized it began with a t and it was obvious. Had no idea about nosferatu, though.

Well yeah, (Washington) Irving works as well since it also starts with an 'i', but Crane's first name is Ichabod, not the author's.

In the original 1931 Frankenstein film this is true (in the book he had no assistant at all). Most subsequent Frankenstein-related films though, such as Son of Frankenstein and so on have a character named either Ygor or Igor, though. So this is one of those things that's entered the pop culture even though it's not strictly accurate, like the quote "Luke, I am your father" being attributed to Darth Vader when that's not actually what he said.

It’s fair to call Nosferatu a knock-off of Dracula, but I still really like the different direction that it took vampire lore.
