What movies do these taglines belong to. Some are definitely tougher than others. Oh, and no cheating and looking them up on the web, that's just too easy.

1. In space no one can hear you scream.
2. You'll Believe a Man Can Fly!
3. In Vietnam The Wind Doesn't Blow It Sucks.
4. Being the adventures of a young man whose principal interests are rape, ultra-violence and Beethoven.
5. We are not alone.
6. "For God's Sake, Get Out!"
7. Man is The Warmest Place to Hide.
8. When there's no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth.
9. His Adventure On Earth
10. They'll never get caught. They're on a mission from God.
11. Scaling the Cliffs of Insanity, Battling Rodents of Unusual Size, Facing torture in the Pit of Despair. - True love has never been a snap.
12. His whole life was a million-to-one shot.
13. The first casualty of war is innocence.
14. Not every gift is a blessing.
15. Houston, we have a problem.

Jeff's guesses are all correct, and Mark's are all correct except for #9, which isn't "Howard the Duck". Good guess on that one though.

Howard the Duck, good God that was an awful movie. I'd guess then that 9 is either Passion of the Christ , E.T., or Starman.

2 sounds like it could be the first Christopher Reeves Superman movie; and the one about "get out!" sounds like a sequel to The Amityville Horror.

Jeff, you are on fire. You got numbers 2 and 6 (well, technically number 6 is the first Amityville movie, not a sequel), and have successfully narrowed down number 9. Care to eliminate to of your guesses for 9 (HINT: it's not Passion of the Christ ).

Good guess, but I'm afraid not.

ok, E.T.

I'm stumped on 7. It's not an "adult" movie is it...

Thanks Jason, a fun quiz. You should grab some more tag lines.

Number 7 has to be some kind of horror movie - some kind of parasite that eats humans... but i couldn't name a specific movie...

and i think 9 sounds like Starman

I think #7 is from The Thing(John Carpenter's version with Kurt Russell, not the original)?

Jeff, you are correct, #9 is ET. And while I suppose there might be an adult movie called "The Thing", Eric is correct about #7 referring to the classic John Carpenter movie.

I believe the original, from the early 50's, was called "The Thing From Another Planet".

Correct, which in turn was based on a SciFi short story named "Who Goes There?"
