Stump The Saint — Horror News Radio’s weekly game show in which the listeners guide Thomas Mariani to the trivia questions poised to stump Santos “The Black Saint” Ellin Jr. Despite his love of trivia, Santos is capable of being stumped on a weekly basis! As to where the audience comes in to Stump The Saint it’s quite simple:
- Look at the individual topic for that week
- Comment — either in this post or in the comments of the posting on Facebook or Twitter — with a film title that relates to the topic for that individual week by the specified date
- Thomas will take your suggested titles and find three of them that can be spun into trivia questions to Stump the Saint
- Thomas will read three of your names on the air as he attempts to stump Santos
- Those who enter a title with US addresses will be entered into a random drawing to win a special prize!
Topic of the Week
Teenagers are the worst, aren’t they? Oily, screeching, generally awkward. They’re full of hormones and lacking in much of any common sense. Yet, they can sometimes be the most endearing protagonists to have around. Especially in genre films like Spider-Man Homecoming, one of our topics for Horror News Radio episode 223. Thus, the topic for this edition of Stump The Saint is Favorite Teenage Protagonist from A Genre Film. Think any age between 13 and let’s say 19. The adolescent kind of characters that we want to be distant from, but can’t help but be a bit connected to.
Every month, Stump The Saint gives listeners with US addresses the potential to win a special prize. Those who have US addresses — which we’ll mainly try to find out through publically available information on social media sites — will have at the very least a monthly opportunity to win in a random drawing. This month, we’re giving away something pretty dope courtesy of our co-host Dave Dreher! That is a copy of the Dawn of the Dead Official Poster Book. It’s got poster artwork, behind the scenes images and best of all… it’s signed by Tom Savini himself! You’ll have until July 10th at 8:30 pm EST to enter for this week, but any US addresses who enter throughout July will be eligible!
