With Scream (5cream?) in cinemas, this week’s film quiz tests your knowledge of fifth instalments of franchises, along with various other movie trivia.


Try three issues of Film Stories magazine – for just £4.99: right here!

If the customary movie quizzes at the beginning of each Scream film had Ghostface asking about the fifth movies of horror franchises, the trivia bits would have deeper cuts than the eventual victims. It’s unsurprising then, that the new Scream movie takes a different approach, but we’re sickos too, so this week’s quiz covers movie franchises that made it as far as five instalments.

Once you’ve completed all three rounds, you’ll find a link to a separate post with the correct answers at the bottom of this post. As always, this is just for fun, but please let us know how you did in the comments (scores out of 30 this week!) and give us any other lovely feedback. As an enduringly popular fifth movie put it, “Yippee Ki-Yay, Mother Russia”…
