'Dark' Movie Quiz
Kind of neat, even if it is just a marketing ploy for M&M's Dark candy. See how many of the 50 movies you can figure out.

Man! That is hard! I went in all confident and got shot down after only a few.

Here's an answer key; I managed to get 49 out of 50 in twenty-minutes (missed #24 on the list) and a friend pointed out the 50th one for me. Just remember that cheating takes all the fun out of it...so don't look at the answers until you've completely given up.

Methinks the time of 44 seconds on the leader board might be a bit of a cheat...

I got about 35 in an hour, then lost interest and checked Matt's answers. The ones I missed were almost all newer films and the three that required counting. Oh well.

42:15 and I got all 50 (although the time doesn't apply I don't think, I paused and didn't unpause at some times) . Some were extremely difficult Spoiler The Grudge, Pitch Black (guessed every variation of Darkness), etc. and some I didn't even know I knew Spoiler  Pirahna, Howling, etc. and some were just plain obvious Spoiler  Leprechaun, Invisible Man, etc. It was very fun. Thanks for posting the link.
I'm surprised such thought went into fluff marketing. Quite impressed.

I actually enjoyed this little game, so did everyone else in my office who I sent it to.  We competed with each other.  Funny thing is, it did not make me want to try the new M&M at all.

Anyone know of any others like this?
