No, you don't. It's one of those movies where the sheer stupidity of the premis overshadows how cool it could have been. Sort of Spoiler: they only bother with two defences against the Kaiju, one giant robots controlled by dancing, the other, a wall that they intentionally don't defend when it's attacked, then act surprised when monsters break through.

If by "pretty darn good" you mean "astonishingly, mind-numbingly awful", then yeah, it was pretty darn good.

Where did you get Maine as the location of Jaws.? Everything I could find either stated the location as "a New England" town or in Massachusetts (where it was filmed). I also found that the book placed Amity on Long Island. But I found nothing about it being in Maine.

It was filmed in Martha's Vineyard, wasn't it?

Yeah, most of it was filmed on Martha's Vineyard; and Amity Island is basically a stand-in for Nantucket/Martha's Vineyard (take your pick).

Unless you're referring to it's release in Canada, the title of that Norwegian film is only one word (no space, no "The").

Very good quiz!!.....i agree with nycbarb...."Invasion of the Body Snatchers"...classic horror film...also, I figured the original "Wolfman" and/or "Dracula"....would be worthy.....in the same genre as "Frankenstein".

I thought The Troll Hunter one was Ragnarok for a second, but I guess the premise is a little different.

"People are hunted by giant worm-like creatures in the deep desert"

My first guess was Dune. My second guess was Beetlejuice. Tremors was my third guess. There seem to be a lot of movies with giant worms in desert wastelands to choose from.

My first guess was Dune. Then Star Wars. Then I was out of ideas.
