Members of the RedEye staff play a movie mashup game and have their horror movie knowledge tested.

Norah Wulkopf: Hello and welcome to RedEye’s Movie Mashup Game. So basically what we are doing is we are taking two different movies, combining their plots to make a synopsis, and then reading the synopsis to members of the staff and then having them guess what the combined movie name is. So, for instance, the synopsis could be something like: The owner of the Bates Motel goes on a journey on Halloween night to reconnect with long lost family members. And, the answer would be Psycoco because it’s Psycho and Coco combined. We have 6 prompts and we are quizzing some of our staff members over their movie knowledge. Alrighty, Jacob Hamm say your name.

Jacob Hamm: I am Jacob Hamm. Should I say my position?
