While construction is being finalized on the new 2.0 version of Trailers from Hell, it's time to get the Trivia from Hell contest, presented exclusively by Yours Truly here at Sergio Leone and the Infield Fly Rule, well and truly under way.
We'll start off with five easy (over easy) questions brought to you by the TFH vaultmeisters, all designed to tickle your recall and whet your appetite for what's in store when the new Trailers from Hell site arrives on Monday, July 1. Look for contest updates and more information on Twitter and Facebook throughout the week.

All you have to do now is take a look at the five questions below, scratch your head a bit and then submit your answers to  Please use the phrase "Trivia from Hell Over Easy" in the subject header of your e-mail. At the end of the week the correct answers will be tallied and the winner will be announced after the new Trailers from Hell site makes its premiere. 

And prizes for each day's contest winner have just been announced!

Those who emerge triumphant on each of the first three days of the contest (Over Easy, Medium Cool and Teeth-Grinding Editions) will win a copy of the Trailers from Hell Vol. 2 DVD!

She or he who conquers Thursday's extra-difficult Headsplitting Edition will be rewarded not only with the Trailers from Hell Vol. 2 DVD but also a DVD copy of Gremlins!

And the person who goes Beyond the Pale on Friday and masters the most challenging level of Trivia from Hell will nab the Trailers from Hell Vol. 2  DVD and a DVD copy of The Howling, both signed by Joe Dante himself!

So let's dilly-dally no longer. Here are today's over-easy questions:

1) This grisly shocker about synthetic flesh was filmed in two separate versions, one in black and white and one in color. There was nothing synthetic about the flesh of its leading lady.

2) The common cold defeated the aliens in these two films, both based on the work of H.G. Wells.

3) This slow-walking islander scared off both Bob Hope and Fay Wray.

4) After tearing up half the town, this misbehaving monster was escorted back home by his mother.

5) The smell of seaweed means a pajama party is about to come to an abrupt end in what low-budget drive-in fin-fest?


Okay, let's have those answers at And be sure to come back tomorrow for part two, the Medium Cool edition of the Trailers from Hell Trivia from Hell contest! Good luck!
