Are these horror movies or The Rifleman episodes?

Tell us which is which for a chance at victory!


Sometimes, the Wild West can be a ghost town or worse. When the crypt doors creak and the tombstones quake, you know there's trouble in North Fork.

The Rifleman has some pretty spooky episode titles, and one wouldn't be blamed for confusing them with horror movies. That's why we made this tricky quiz only for Lucas McCain experts. Fear not, though! Maybe you're a horror movie authority! In that case, you'll still have a path to success. Take a guess, pick your answer and scare (oops, share) your answer in the comments section below!

Each option is either an episode of The Rifleman or a horror movie. You pick!

10/15. The one that confused me was "High Tension." There is an episode called, "Tension," starring Chuck Connors' real-life son, Jeff, along with Jack Elam and Harry Dean Stanton.

12/15! I’m a horror fan — never seen The Rifleman

I've never watched "The Rifleman--only reason I did so well is because I knew which ones were horror movies! I only beefed on 2--never heard of "The Prowler" horror movie (and I thought I knew all of them!), and I didn't know about the Rifleman episode called "Seven".

15/15...Well, knowing my Rifleman episodes and having seen "Seven", the movie, also helped.

These two...what ah match!

7/15 didn’t watch the show much. My pop said he should use the rifle for a crutch because he never uses it.

"Bone Tomahawk" is from 2015, and isn't a Sam Raimi film. Raimi's 1995 western is "The Quick And The Dead."
