    If all the members here were trapped in an escape room for 24 hours watching silent movies from the Fox Film Corp (merged with Twentieth Century Pictures on 5/31/1935 to become 20th Century Fox), who would be the last person standing? That is, besides me.

    Is this a fight to the death?

    I would mute the tv, call 911, eat a snack, and get a nap.

    No. We would be trying to escape a room that has us watching 24 hours of silent movies. Whoever escapes first or whoever is the last person standing is the strongest. In this case, the insanity of watching all those silent films in one sitting will literally kill us!

    @Martialegg: In this scenario, your plan won't work as it is not possible in this scenario.

    It is booby-trapped but it is either find the exit door by the end of the 24 hours or go through the entire 24 hours and use sheer will/resilience to survive. Food, beverages, and showers are provided but no bedding.

    @Suijin: The dub-overs would have to be in Hungarian!

    I would assume we would die because of cerebral hypoxia first before the 1st movie ended (let's assume there is no ventilation just like Konzentrationslager)

    Or if all of us survive we would die too because one of us carried COVID-19 few days/weeks later

    Despite no bedding, I am confident of sleeping through anything. Its one of my 108 secret skills as a loner.

    I would choose to go entire 24 hours watching the silent movies I guess... Rather than trying to find a exit and accidentally setting off a trap, better to sit and watch others try them first. If no one succeeds then I will just watch the movies. And if someone does succeeds I will try the same method that they do.:sneaky:

    It's whatever the medical terms would be that correspond to literally dying of insanity and/or boredom.

    Last one standing? We'd all be rolling on the floor either laughing or crying or not knowing whether to laugh or cry while coughing blood.:blobfearful:

    So do you actually have to focus on the films?, or can you just sit and enjoy the chaos between the other people in there? lol

    Fuck. Even a group of homies making fun of the movies will get stale in an hour or two. It will be literal hell but it will probably still be less painful to watch than the Cats movie

    Silent movie doesn't have a music and sfx? I've watched Charlie Chaplin and I based it on that movie.

    Either. You have just have to escape that exit room by the end of those 24 hours or you die. Otherwise, you have to use sheer will/resilience to stay alive for those 24 hours.

    @Martialegg: Even the original version of how ever many silent movies (the original theatrical version) did have music playing in the background at times. Also, there are semi-silents or partial-talkies. Those have how ever many lines of spoken dialogue. First successful one of these and what really marked the end of the silent era was The Jazz Singer.

    I haven't seen really any of those silent films so that wouldn't be too bad... It would be the excessive amount of people that'd probably drive me crazy. I've been practicing extreme social distancing for at least a year before covid19 because people make noise and I dislike noise.

    I'll do the dubs in a mix of croatian/bosnian/serbian, english and sometimes chinese. just to make it a mess.

    I’ll just sleep. The movies are quiet enough.

    The reason why Hungarian would be the only acceptable non-English language here was because Fox Empire William Fox was born in Hungary (village of Tolcsva).
