Can you guess the '70s fantasy movie from the terrible description?

These descriptions aren't very descriptive at all!


Sometimes we can't rely on a description for a movie. And really, the less you know, the better. How many times has a movie been spoiled because the trailer included too much information?

Or maybe it's an unreliable friend who provides the description, and they just can't hit all the details.

How well are you able to piece together bad information? If we gave you a lousy one-sentence explanation of a movie, do you think you could guess its title? We hope so because these descriptions are awful. Whoever came up with them probably didn't even have their coffee yet this morning. 

Good luck, because you'll need it! Be sure to share any thoughts in the comments section, along with your score!

  1. After watching strangers die, a child inherits a factory.
  2. A kid leaves a farm because a hermit told him to.
  3. A witch helps Britain win World War II.
  4. A rich guy has nightmares that make him nicer.
  5. A guy who never goes on any adventures suddenly goes on an adventure.
  6. Eva Gabor gets catnapped.
  7. A journalist is actually a magical orphan.
  8. A girl gets bad directions.
  9. An homeowner helps a couple after their car breaks down.
  10. A guy wishes he didn't have a baby.

You got 10 out of 10
You're one of the greats!

Guessed on most of them. Not bad for not being born until 1986! I have always been an old soul at heart.

9/10 But only because #1 is wrong. Nobody dies in Willy Wonka, so I refused to pick it.

10/10 Never seen Eraserhead, but did see the other 2, so I knew the answer.

6 of 10. I only got the ones I knew. Lately, my guessing skills have been way off the mark. I've been speeding through these quizzes again. Slow down and give it some thought... Still, an odd, but fun quiz!

That was a strange quiz in my opinion.

9/10. Missed #1. Lousy description evidently written by someone who never saw the movie. No one dies in Willy Wonka. In fact Charlie is told by Wonka that the others would be alright but may have learned a lesson.

I thought some of the kids die. Violet, Gustaf(?).
