MANIAC MADNESS BEGINS NOW!


Are you guys pumped or what? Myself, I am decidedly pumped. I've got "Welcome to the Jungle" playing, I ran through a giant piece of paper, and I dumped a tub of Gatorade over my head. Okay, so it wasn't Gatorade- I held a box of Franzia over my head and opened the spigot. It's the spirit of the thing that matters, isn't it? And the spirit of the thing is FIGHT!

Here's the tourney bracket; you can download a big version here.


As I mentioned yesterday, the voting criteria is up to you. Whatever your reasons, you just have to cast your vote for whomever (or whatmever) you think should reach the next round. Now let's take a look at today's contenders!


Jason is surely an unstoppable juggernaut, having appeared in more than a zillion films, books, video games, Halloween costumes, and erotic fanfictions. But! Could Silent Night, Deadly Night 2's Ricky Caldwell be the person to stop him? Jason has been very naughty, after all, and Ricky sure likes to punish! (add +1 to erotic fanfiction count)

This is a tough one! Hellraiser's Pinhead wears leather and travels around in a little cube (I'm paraphrasing), whereas the troglodytes hang out in The Pit and have their food brought to them. I honestly don't know who has the better life.

Both icons. Both undead. Both bite. And yet, only one can move on! Will it be Dracula (apologies to Bela Lugosi, Frank Langella, Jack Palance, Gary Oldman, and many more...my default Dracula is always Christopher Lee) or Dawn of the Dead's Machete Zombie? Get to clickin' and help decide!

A 70s telekinetic teen showdown! Sure, Carrie is absolutely more famous...but before you go thinking that this is a pig's blood wash, let me remind you: Jennifer can control snakes!

That's all for today, folks. Voting ends at midnight EST!

Usually I prefer the underdogs, but I had to go with all four #1 seeds this time around. Too strong. My first-round upsets will have to wait...

I know what you mean! Although I did vote for trogs over Pinhead, because The Pit gives me more pleasure than Hellraiser does.

I wanted to vote for Jennifer, but come on, Carrie White is the best.

Currently searching Jason Voorhees erotic fan fiction...

I am way too emotionally invested in this tournament.

No surprises in the first round, but I suspect by round three I'll be tearing my hair and beating my breast like an Italian widow.

Love this!

My votes were fairly predictable in this round as well. The only upset vote was taking Jennifer over Carrie.

Because SNAKES!

Poor Machete Zombie. He gets a machete in his head *and* has to go up against Dracula in the first round.
