Friday Quiz-Super Spooky Halloween Edition

This week's quiz is guest hosted by Christine Hadden, who can usually be found talking horror on her own site Fascination with Fear.  You might want to stop by there and check out her super aggressive Halloween Festival  of Lists.  Every day this month she has created a horror related list numbered to correspond with the day of the month.  For example today is the 28th, so her list will have 28 items on it.  One of my favorites so far as been the kids in horror one.  On to the quiz.

$200-  What film is supposedly based on The Keddie Murders, an violent unsolved case of a brutal murder in the Sierra Nevada mountains?

$400-   What three Dario Argento movies combine to make the "Three Mothers" trilogy?  And what are the names of the so-called mothers?

$600-  What flavor of ice cream does Dick Hallorann give Danny in The Shining?

$800-  Name the real-life mall in which 1978's Dawn of the Dead was filmed?

$1000  Author and friend Peter Straub convinced Stephen King to put down and step away from what novel he was writing because the subject matter was so disturbing? 

Bonus-  Match the car to the movie

1.  1958 Plymouth Fury                                          A.  Death Proof
2.  1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88                                  B.  Christine
3.  1969 Dodge Charger                                          C.  Evil Dead 1, 2, and AOD
4.  1957 Ford Custom 300                                       D.  Psycho

Christine Hadden is the creator/editor/writer of Fascination with Fear.  She prefers frequenting dark theaters alone and avoiding most situations in which she is required to be social. She boasts an uncanny knack for sarcasm, an utter lack of conformity, and a raging hatred of the 3D phenomenon.  Vampires are her go-to monster of choice and she has a sincere love of Italian horror, ghost stories, Great White sharks, and Norman Bates.  She is a contributor to Fangoria, Paracinema, and The Blood Sprayer

I'm pretty good on most trivia, but this is not my area of expertise. I do know that 1 is B, but I'm not sure about anything else..LAME! Sorry...
