March is here, and while most turn their attention to college hoops, Cargill and I thought we’d inject ourselves with a very special strain of March Madness. All month long, we’ll be charting the boundaries of sanity and celebrating our favorite cinematic loons, kooks, and whackjobs.

If you’ve ever wondered what Jack Palance, Martin Landau, and Dynamo from The Running Man would be like as free-range psychopaths, do we have a flick for you!
