This years beautiful banner for THE MADNESS was created by artist Frank Browning
For those of you who haven't been listening to the radio show lately (first of, why not! Ha Ha), we here at DBH are big fans of movie marathons...especially horror marathons! Miss Elizabeth Katheryn Gray, known as the Head Hauntress, has taken it to a completely new level in her facebook group, HALLOWEEN HORROR MOVIE MARATHON MADNESS (click HERE). Every October, she runs a month long horror movie marathon contest, each point receiving a certain amount of points with bonus points given for special films, horror related TV shows, elements found in the films watched, and films with certain actors (more details on the point system to come closer to the start of the contest). Each year, the contest has a particular theme for the style of film that will get the most points. This year, It's all about films on the Video Nasty list! If you are interested in getting in on the contest, click the above link for more detailed info. If your are planning on trying to get in, Liz has given some contestants a chance to get EARLY BONUS POINTS!!! (and if not, you can still get a free poster!)
