Image Credit: Everett Collection (4)Question 1: You are all alone, unarmed, in a darkened alleyway. At one end stands A Nightmare on Elm Street‘s Freddy Krueger, at the other Halloween‘s Michael Myers. Which way do you run?
Question 2: You’re all alone, unarmed, on the third-floor stairway of an isolated mansion at midnight. At the top of the stairs, you see The Shining‘s Jack Torrance, wielding an axe, and at the foot of the steps is The Silence of the Lambs‘ Hannibal Lecter with a plate of fava beans and a nice Chianti. Again, which way do you run?
