Thanks to MeTV fan Roy Prince for submitting this horror movie quiz idea. Do you have a great idea for a quiz? Share it with us!

Without a doubt, Universal Pictures and Hammer Film Productions are the two most famous companies behind classic horror movies. Universal started scaring audiences in the silent era and continued for the next three decades, producing numerous sequels with overlapping characters. They even introduced their slate of scary monsters to comedic duo Abbott and Costello in a series of films.

Across the pond, the London-based Hammer Film Productions brought iconic monsters and vampires to life in creative and bizarrely fun ways from the 1950s through the '70s.

How well do you know the many films produced by both companies? Pick which character below you think was NOT featured in a movie from either production house. Keep guessing until you find it!

That ugly bugger was a German movie so only logical to pick Mr. Nosferatu .
There was some rumors I had heard when I was a younger lad that the actor playing the vampire thought he was an actual vampire?

FUN FACT...The 70’s Rock n Roll Band Blue Oyster Cult has a great song called Nosferatu. It’s about breaking the spell of Count Dracula. It’s on the album Spectres (1977) great song to play this Halloween!

WOW! I got it on the first try. Well, I knew Nosferatu wasn't any of them because when it came out in the 20s.

That logic is flawed - "Phantom of the Opera" came out in the 20s as well.

This was way easier than I thought it would be. But, I've seen at least the base films for the characters from both Universal and Hammer, and the only one I was unsure about at first I knew was a Hammer regular, but then I saw the one I knew was the answer. How's that for a run-on sentence? 🤣

You call that a run-on sentence? You've obviously never read an Amazon review.
