The Most Offbeat Films Ever Made

Mass Marathon of the Damned XII Presents

The Ultimate Guide to Strange Cinema

***Marathon is optional. Only one theme required to complete.***

It isn’t every film that features man-eating zombie sushi.
But for those searching for just that and more strange things in their viewing queue, this film guide is for you.
Organized by genre, including comedy, horror, action, drama, fantasy, and sci-fi, this title offers 300 reviews of
genre films from all over the world, 160+ photos, and exclusive interviews and quotes from the people behind some
of the most offbeat films ever made. Alongside this curated list of viewing recommendations, longtime fans and new comers to
strange cinema gain bits of fun and informative trivia. For example, David Caruso’s film debut was Without Warning (1980),
a carefree trip into the woods thwarted by killer flying alien discs. Lurking in these so-bad-they’re-good-films,
you’ll find other familiar actors like David Carradine, James Brolin,Martin Landau,
and Ryan Gosling in films like Death Race 2,000 (1975), The Car (1977), The Being (1983), and Lost River (2014).
The zombie sushi, by the way, is from Dead Sushi (2012).


Catalina Island Marathon is one of many marathons happening today.

The "Rules"



What is This Thing?

Since its inception in 2005 the goal of this challenge has been to watch 100 horror films in a month's time. Obviously that's not an attainable goal for everyone, so your personal goal is of your choosing. Whether it's achieved, surpassed or beyond your reach, the ultimate goal here is to enjoy yourself while conversing with fellow genre fans.
Creating a List.

As always, there will be a separate list thread posted roughly 2 weeks prior (possibly sooner!) to the October 1st start date. Be creative and personalize your list however you wish - give reviews, post pics, link to your blog or start one on your page, provide IMDB links with your titles, add YouTube videos, include running times, etc.

The forum software now allows for unlimited post length, although you're still welcome to post it in a weekly or biweekly format. Also be aware the image limit has been raised from 35 to 60. And it's not a bad idea to provide a link to the list in your signature for easier access.

The date for list completion is September 15.


The only mandatory rule here is NUMBER YOUR LISTS!


What Counts?

If you're uncertain of the title's genre classification the IMDB and AllMovie are the go-to sources for determining its potential horror movie status.

Need more confirmation? A third and fourth option exists and that is FlickChart (requires free sign up) and TMDB.
Of course, any site is prone to the occasional error and if you feel that's the case asking in the discussion thread is advised.
Just keep in mind that the #1 deciding factor regarding what counts is you and you alone.

Feature FilmsCounts as 1 entry
Short FilmsAdd them up to total 90 minutes to get 1 entry
Television ShowsAdd them up to 120 minutes (including commercials) to get 1 entry


Movies = 1 entry (despite running time)

TV shows count according to length as they're aired on TV (including commercials):

30 minute shows = ¼ an entry
1 hour shows = ½ an entry
90 minute shows = ¾ an entry
2 hour shows = 1 entry


Mini-Series = 1 entry for each day it aired

Commentaries count. (no restrictions)

Documentaries count.

Trailer Compilations count.
Longer Comps (4+ hours) = 1 entry for every 2 hours


A SLIGHTLY MORE COMPLICATED EXPLANATION:

Concerning TV shows and shorts films:









Like the other challenges, you need four 30 minute shows for 1 entry and two hour-long shows for 1 entry. 30 minute shows typically run roughly 22 - 24 minutes without commercials and hour-long shows are roughly 43 - 45 minutes. If it's short films that are 10 minutes or less, once you hit around 23 minutes of watching them, you've reached one 30 minute show (¼ an entry). Any combination that gets you to 90 minutes can be used for 1 entry. And this is not an exact science, so if you're off by a little it's really no big deal.


When listing the TV shows try to keep them together in 1 entry.
(Example: 30 min show/30 min show/30 min show/30 min show)

For the sake of organization, it's advised that you keep a Temporary TV section at the bottom of your list until you get enough for an entry.

Why 90 minutes? To keep the continuity going with the other challenges.

Every facet of horror counts: Horror-comedies, Sci-Fi horror, wretchedly bad horror [INSERT CURRENT REMAKE HERE], kiddie horror, creature features, erotic / XXX horror, Masters of Horror, silents, made-for-TV movies, etc.
The formats and how you watch them is strictly your call -- 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray via Playstation VR, DVD, Netflix Watch Instantly, HD DVD, at the theater, on television, public domain downloads (links provided below), VHS, Laserdisc, Video On Demand, Virtual Reality, Netflix disc-by-mail, UMD, MiniDV, CED, Amazon Instant Video, through your neighbor's window, Roku, Google Chromecast, Apple TV, a Boxee Box, Amazon Fire TV, Hulu, Youtube, Pay-per-view, Betamax, via laptop, netbook, VCD, a smartphone, a tablet ...you name it. And yes, that even includes the pan & scan, edited-for-television movies that air on TBS with obnoxious on-screen graphics and commercial interruptions (NOT recommended!). Just make sure the film is viewed in it's entirety.
Row #6 - Proud to be unoccupied since 2010!
You're welcome to include non-genre titles viewed during the month in your list, but please keep them separate from your qualifying entries and don't number them.
Sometime in November there will be a results thread posted. If you wish to be included in the stats provided (aside from your number ranking), please include the following in your list:

- First time viewings. The thing is a commonly used symbol.
- Formats viewed. (BD, DVD, NWI, etc.)
- Your personal goal ...even if it happens to be the challenge's goal of 100.


Keep it civil. The intention here is to have fun, so please don't take this event started by a guy with just a little too much time on his hands that seriously.

Thought I'd mention this limited edition box - 'Silver Screams Cinema'. By far the best place to pick it up seems to be fishpond.com (good price and free shipping), but if you want it in time for October, you need to order now more or less. I ordered one today and it's supposed to show up the first or second week or October. As far as I can tell it's all region.

So excited for this year, even though I won't come near 100 like I have the last two years since I just started a new job. But my wife and I will be hopefully living in our new home, and I can buy a snazzy new 4K TV, and get some watching done!!!

That's good to hear. The first post has desperately needed a major overhaul for years now.

Speaking of the first post, if anyone has a compilation video of last year's challenge please share. I just added Mondo Kane's 2020 comp to post 4. That's the new spot since I'm a bit reluctant to add them to the first post because YouTube and this forum software, well, you know. All reserved posts are actually being used for possibly the first time ever, too.

We’re all winners just by participating!

But yeah, the results thread was a crap-ton of work that Chad appeared to put as much work into as the preparation threads! So he retired from making the results threads several years ago. I did a simplified version of them once or twice, and have started work on one for last year. I’ll try to get it posted before October.

Well, if everyone would agree to a standardized, comma delimited format for displaying their data, it would be relatively easy to import it into a spreadsheet or database. After that the rest is pretty straightforward. That'll never happen though, so..¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I helped one year, it was a nightmare. I wonder.. if we could outsource the work maybe to a low-end freelancer? I'd throw in $5-$10. Wonder how much it would cost to crunch the data?
