I got the Exorcist question correct, however I only submitted Reagan after attempting "demon", "devil", "satan" and "pazuzu" . . . since Reagan wasn't actually evil, she was possessed. Good quiz!

I was confused about that too. I'll add a few more options for that question.

Good quiz, but I think Keyser Soze should be an acceptable alternative to Verbal Kint.

You should accept the word "number" in addition to the "#" you accept for the question on 12 Angry Men. I tried every combination and it wouldn't work with the word "number" in it and I never thought to try it with the symbol.

Juror Number Eight or Juror Eight would have worked. Jetpunk never requires punctuation to my knowledge.
