Frightful and crazy questions

As Halloween approaches Auntie Beeb has thrown a few questions together to tingle spines and rattle those grey brain cells. In keeping with their Fright Night season on Radio 4 and 4 Extra, they have some Stephen King-themed teasers.

I scored five out of ten on that one. Not content with giving folk the heebiejeebies, it seems King is also a big Bee-Gees fan.


Then they ask the important stuff. How long would you last in a horror film?

Five out of seven for me on that one. Even more disconcerting is this quiz on things that used to be known. Some might be moving in the right direction, others seen outlandish with modern hindsight.


I got a measly one out of ten.

By the way, if you survive Radio 4's Rosemary’s Baby on Saturday night, then the radio version of The Stone Tape is on Radio 4 Extra from midnight. And Torchwood’s Eve Myles and Naoko Mori are reunited the following day for The Ring. All will be available on the website shortly after broadcast.
