Guess That Movie: LXVII: The Worst Witch

Guess That Movie Round 67Yes, it’s time for round LXVII of the Guess That Movie competition (slightly delayed due to the server move).

First of all – Kymberlie R. McGuire correctly recognised the screen shot in round 66 as being from the 1998 remake of Pyscho and she should have received your Amazon.com gift voucher (which is the prize) for her previous guesses by now (for some reason, Amazon.com would not accept the normal Guess That Movie email address: and hence I had to recode the “auto-prizer” bit I’m writing).

Anyway – here’s image 67 (sorry, I can’t stop playing with the Google calculator) – take a guess and let me know which movie/film you think the screen shot has been taken from. I’ll be generous and give you a clue “You won’t find the scarecrow in this movie”: I doubt it’ll help, but at least you can’t complain I’m not being helpful πŸ˜‰

For those of you who are new, read on for the details of the competition and the prizes you could win – otherwise, just make your guess by leaving a comment with your name (or alias), email address (real one please: only I can see them anyway and I hate spam), web site address (totally optional) and the name of the movie you are guessing at.

A: The Worst Witch. Correctly guessed by christina mullin

For those who are new here, basically Guess That Movie (GTM) is a little competition where you have “simply” just got to recognise which movie the screen shot on the left has been taken from. I say “simply” as sometimes, it’s not quite obvious which movie it is (yes, the screenshot has been cropped and resized – but I’ve done nothing else to it).

Why bother guessing? Well, there are prizes to be won! Yep – prizes for a “free to enter competition” (well, I get a little kick back from the Google Adsense adverts on the right of each page which is just covering the prize fund: otherwise it comes out of my back pocket). What’s the prizes? At the moment, they are Amazon gift vouchers (for your local Amazon store in your local currency), but I’m open to suggestions.

What’s the value of the “FREE to win” Amazon gift vouchers? Well, it just depends on how quickly and accurately the image is guessed. As soon as I post each image, it’s worth 100 points and each 100points=£1 (roughly US$1.62 or 1.40EUR). However, each wrong guess brings the value down by 5 points and the value decreases over time. After 12 hours, it’s worth 10 points less – 12 hours after that and another 10 points are knocked off, and then 10 points for every 24 hours after that. Oh – and you can only claim a prize once you’ve collected 500 points.

Good luck!

This post is over 6 months old.

This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.

This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.

Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".

    The screen shot, I believe, is from “The Worst Witch” starring Fairuza Balk and that guy from Rocky Horror. Am I right? It would be hilarious if I was.

  2. Well done Christina: you got it right – it was The Worst Witch! The guy’s name is Tim Curry: more recently seen in Scary Movie 2.

    Welcome to Guess That Movie by the way πŸ˜‰
