on September 20, 2011 - 4:58pm

How well do you know your creature culture? A fun quiz for the "Halloween Hardcores" at your next party. They are written in a format that requires the questions to be read aloud (otherwise, some of the answers are obvious because they are mentioned in the next question). I've kept the answers separate, at the end of the questions, just in case some of you ghost-hosts want to have some fun as you read through.
