When I saw the earthquake movie they brought in altec Lansing speakers so you could feel the vibrations of the bass .this was before the sound systems they have now

I didn't see Earthquake at the theater. I went out to see two other Sensurround movies: Midway and Rollercoaster.

9/10! I would've love seeing Clue in the theater. I think I would have seen it 3x just to see the multiple endings.

7/10. I've only seen 3 of the films mentioned..."Psycho, Earthquake & Rollercoaster". I bought "Rollercoaster" at my supermarket when they were getting rid of their videos. It's on VHS.

The villain, Tim Bottoms, was pretty good. So cold, calculating and meticulous. He covered every detail of his crime.

7 of 10. Several wrong guesses but a lot of new ideas for movies to see! Actually, I found a pair of those 3D "ghost-viewer" cardboard glasses while cleaning out my parents home, so I knew #2 question for sure!

8/10
All guesses

I see now that Svengoolie's "Svensurround" comes from "Sensurround" which I've never heard that term before this quiz.

9 out of 10. I missed number 8. And can I say Clue is one of the best movies ever.

Most of mine were guesses also...and I missed #8 also...speaking of sick bags....in junior high I got hold of an airline sick bag which I used to pack my lunch in.....yes I've always been a little weird.

Cool! I guess when the bags are used on a plane, you're "un-packing your lunch", so to speak!!

Yeah the bags were unused....but in hindsight I could have dumped a potpie in the bag to simulate and started a barfing outbreak like in Porky's.😆👍
