March Madness not your cup of tea? Well, what if we told you we were pitting sixteen of the meanest movie monsters against each other in our own horrific version – appropriately called Monster Madness – and that you can vote to see who comes out on top of the bloody pile? Imagine Michael Myers facing off knife-to-machete with Jason Voorhees, Hannibal Lecter chowing down against Leatherface, Alien's Xenomorph locking tentacles with The Thing. Those are just a few of the match-ups you can choose from at FEARnet's official Facebook page.
The first round of this interactive tournament kicks off today with our own not-so-sweet sixteen; voting on round 1 is open now and will close tomorrow, March 29th at 4PM Pacific. Here's the lineup:
- Hell Region: Pinhead vs. Pennywise and Freddy Krueger vs. Candyman
- Flesh Region: Michael Myers vs. Jason Voorhees and Dr. Hannibal Lecter vs. Leatherface
- Colossal Region: Predator vs. Hatchet's Victor Crowley and the Xenomorph vs. The Thing.
- Mysterious Region: Chucky vs. Trick R Treat's Sam and David of The Lost Boys vs. Marlow from 30 Days of Night.
Survivors of Round 1 will move on to face each other in Round 2, with voting opening on Saturday, March 30th at 9AM PT and closing on Sunday, March 31st at 4PM PT. Division winners will go head-to-head in Round 3, starting Saturday, April 6th from 9AM-9PM PT, with results determining the “Terrible Two,” who will face each other in the Championship Round. That vote will take place Monday, April 8th from 9AM-9PM PT. Results of the final contest will be posted the next day.
