Last week, I asked who your favorite horror movie icon was. The winner?
It wasn’t quite a landslide. Actually, Michael Myers was tied with Freddy Krueger all week, but at the eleventh hour, someone came in and voted for Mr. Meyers. A good thing for you Halloween fans, too, because if I had been the tie-breaker, I would have voted for Freddy. What can I say? I’m a sucker for a man in a fedora and a striped sweater.
Ghostface came in third place with a mere three votes. Pinhead and Chucky got nothing. I can’t say I’m surprised. They were both sort of an afterthought.
Now, as for your new poll . . .
I’m not going to give you a traditional movie poll this week. For one thing, I don’t have a good movie question in mind. For another thing, I need help with something I’m working on.
I’m going to give you two brief scenarios gauging your willingness to kill people. (Aren’t you already intrigued? Isn’t homicide fun?) All you have to do is either answer yes or no to both questions. If you want to tell me your reasoning, that’s fine, but it’s also unnecessary.
You are facing a known serial killer in a warehouse. The serial killer has a knife to your loved one’s throat and will murder him/her if you do not kill the serial killer first. Can you kill the serial killer?
A known serial has stabbed your loved one in the chest. You have knocked the serial killer unconscious, but your loved one is still dying, and there’s no time to get help. You know that if you murder the serial killer in his sleep, your loved one would magically survive. Can you kill the serial killer?
This survey will be open one week like always. This is research for the novel I’m working on, so I really do appreciate your help : )
