What State is Amity Island in?

If you are talking about the Amity Island from the movie Jaws, the island doesn't really exist. But, the movie was shot at Joseph Sylva State Beach, Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, USA (which became Amity Island in the movie).

Why does Freddy Krueger kill?

User Avatar
Freddy kills the children of Elm Street. Freddy was killed by a group of parents after being accused of molesting the children. The legal system failed the families and Freddy was set free so the parents took it upon themselves to exact revenge. They found him in the boiler room and set it on fire with him inside. Now Freddy seeks his own revenge on the children of Elm Street.

What was Pennywise really?

User Avatar
Pennywise (the dancing clown) was a character in Stephen King's IT -a book, later a film. He first appears in 1740, removing 300 people from a Derry township. It was destroyed in 1985 (apparently) by the second Ritual of Chud. The book implies that just as there was a creator of things, and the Turtle, so there was also a destroyer of things, as there is always a balance. This is what Pennywise is.

Was Michael Myers a real murderer?

No, Michael Myers is 100% fictional. None of the movies are based on "true events" and Haddonfield Illinois is also 100% fictional, it was named after where Debra Hill was born; Haddonfield, New Jersey.

What are the four classification of computers?

User Avatar
MAINFRAME COMPUTER MINI-COMPUTER MICRO-COMPUTER SUPER-COMPUTER There are many computers which are different from each other in various aspects. Classification of computers are given below. (1) Micro computers: These computers use a microprocessor chip and this chip is used instead of CPU means that this microprocessor chip works as a CPU. These computers are also called personal computers. Two major types of these computers are laptop or Desktop computers. Only one user uses these computers at time that's why they are also known as personal computers. (2) Mini Computers: These are powerful computer. These computers come into existence in 1960s at that time mainframe computer was very costly. Mini computers were available in cheap prices, so users start using it. (3) Mainframe Computer: It as a very powerful and large computer. You can get idea of its power as it can handle processing of many users at a time. Terminals are used to connect a user to this computer and users submit there task through mainframe. Terminal is a device which has keyboard and a screen. By using terminal users put inputs into the computer and get the output through screen. (4) Super Computers: As the name "super computer" specifies that these are most powerful computers even than mainframe. Actually, when we optimize a mainframe computer then we get super computer. (5) Microprocessor: You will find these computers everywhere. Microprocessor chips are used in many devices as I-pod, DVD, headphone etc.

What is the title of a black and white horror film where a ventriloquist's dummies come to life and kill?

User Avatar
I agree it's probably Devil Doll (1964), which is on DVD. It is very similar to that episode in Dead of Night (1945) though. There is only one doll in each though, both called Hugo! YES but the one i think you mean is silent death There is one from 2007 that is called Dead Silence and I believe it was one of those movies that was remade. It's about exactly what you described as the plot.

What is the best scary movie to watch on Halloween?

User Avatar
The obvious answer, of course, is John Carpenter's Halloween (1978), which was one of the very first "slasher" horror films that became ever—so—popular in the 1980s. Other notable films in the horror genre that have given me the creeps in particular are The Birds (1963), Alien (1979), The Shining (1980), John Carpenter's The Thing (1982), It Follows (2014), The Witch (2015), Hereditary (2018), and this year's The Lighthouse.

How did Mary shaw from dead silence die?

User Avatar
After Mary kidnapped Jamie's great-uncle Michael when he was a child, the townspeople suspected her, and then broke into her theater where they made their way to her quarters. There, they forced her to scream, and then cut out her tongue. They don't explain how this killed her, but this was the reason, and the subsequent reason why she ripped the tongues out of all her kills.

Is The Amityville Horror a real movie?

User Avatar
Yes, there are two: the original, which came out in 1979, and the remake, which came out in 2005. You can rent or buy them anywhere movies are sold or rented. There were also a few sequels: Amityville: The Possession (1982), Amityville: 3-D (1983), Amityville: The Evil Escapes (1989), which was a made-for-TV movie, and The Amityville Curse (1990), which was straight-to-video. Also, a new one is planned for 2012, called Amityville: The Lost Tapes.

What was the first horror movie ever made?

User Avatar
It is beleived that "Le Manoir de Diable" (House of the Devil) was the first horror movie. It was filmed by Georges Melies in France in 1896. There is a slight conflict as to which movie was the first horror film. First, "The Execution of Mary Stuart" was produced by American inventor Thomas Edison in 1895. It was only 18 seconds in length, and it depicted a woman being beheaded. In 1896, Georges Melies made "Le Manoir du diable" (The House of the Devil) which was 1-2 minutes in length and depicted Mephistopheles summoning ghosts and demons. Longer films didn't really appear until the 1900's. The first American horror film of the 20th century is Edison Studios' version of Frankenstein, made in 1910. Though many classify Quasimodo, the hunchback of Notre Dame, as a monster and thus as a horror character, I feel his story is more of a tragic romance. If you think Quasimodo is a monster, then the first full-length horror film is Alice Guy's "Esmeralda" (1906), otherwise the first full-length horror film is from Germany, Paul Wegener's "The Golem" (1910). Answers from other Answers contributors: The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1919) was a famous silent German horror film. It is the best-known and the most influential expressionist film. Nosferatu (1922) is the first best-know film to use dramatic lighting and shadows to make the scenes appear darker and set the mood for the horror scenes. Is believed to be the very first "true horror" movie to be made, the monster being played by Charles Stanton Ogle.
Asked in William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet, Classic Horror Movies

Was 'Romeo and Juliet' based on a true story?

User Avatar
In 1530 a guy in Italy called Luigi da Porto wrote a story called Giuletta e Romeo, which is pretty darn similar to the story we know. And da Porto claimed it was all true, and that it had happened between 1375 and 1381 in Verona. Well, that should satisfy us, except, if we behave like snopes, we find that there is a story called Mariotto e Gianozza published in 1476 which is virtually the same story except that the author swears it took place in Siena and he was around when it happened. Do we detect an urban legend here? Add to that that parts of the story seem to have been drawn from Bocaccio's Decameron, Ovid's Metamorphoses (the Pyramus and Thisbe story) and Xenophon's Ephesiaca. Hmm. And in addition, there were no Capulets in Verona. They were from Cremona (The Montagues were Veronese however). All of this means that, no, Romeo and Juliet is not a true story, and the events it talks about did not happen in 1303. That date appears to have been proposed by the grossly inaccurate City of Verona Tourist Site, which of course would love to have you believe that the story was true.
