Does anybody know if there is an actual name for this phenomenon?

If there is, I can't seem to find what it would be.



My Google-Fu lead me to that wiki article, but hasn't been able to come up with an actual term for this.





Some other articles on it:

The most boring transitional title problem, ever?

The Saturday-night-no-life quandry?

I posted this at around 3:00 PM, yesterday afternoon.

You're the one who bothered to post something shitty at after 2:00 AM on a Sunday morning.

What's a'matter, Wishy? All pilled and boozed up and your husband stood you up?

Do Right, Be Right. :)

I think my favorite is the whole Zombie thing...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zombi_(film_series)

Quote:

Italian series

The Italian series starts with Dawn of the Dead and is followed by Zombi 2 and its officially released sequel.

Zombi (1978) (original title: Dawn of the Dead)
Zombi 2 (1979)
Zombi 3 (1988)

British series

In the UK the series is known as Zombie Flesh Eaters. While it follows the Italian series in proper order, it ignores Dawn of the Dead as the first entry, and instead starts with Zombi 2, adding the unrelated film Oltre la morte as a third installment.

Zombie Flesh Eaters (1979) (Italian title: Zombi 2)
Zombie Flesh Eaters 2 (1988) (Italian title: Zombi 3)
Zombie Flesh Eaters 3 (1988) (Italian title: Oltre la morte, a.k.a. After Death)

German series

The German series, like the Italian series, starts off with Dawn of the Dead, but ignores Fulci's Zombi 2 (which was released separately as Woodoo), and instead continues with Day of the Dead and the Italian Zombi 3.

Zombie (1979) (original title: Dawn of the Dead)
Zombie 2: Das Letzte Kapitel (1985) (original title: Day of the Dead)
Zombie III (1988) (Italian title: Zombi 3)

Thai series

The Thai Zombi series follows the titling and numbering of the British series, but adds the unrelated film Killing Birds with the new title, Zombie Flesh Eaters 4.[2]

Zombie Flesh Eaters (Italian title: Zombi 2)
Zombie Flesh Eaters 2 (Italian title: Zombi 3)
Zombie Flesh Eaters 3 (Italian title: Oltre la morte, a.k.a. After Death)
Zombie Flesh Eaters 4 (Italian title: Uccelli assassini, a.k.a. Killing Birds)

American series

Although the American series begins with Zombi 2 and continues in the established sequence, some of the films were retitled again and the titles do not follow in numerical order. Zombi 2 was renamed Zombie, but Zombi 3 was still renamed Zombie 3 rather than Zombie 2. Two additional films were released on home video with titles that would imply that they were sequels, but which had nothing to do with the Italian series.

Zombie (1979) (Italian title: Zombi 2)
Zombie 3 (1988) (Italian title: Zombi 3)
Zombie 4: After Death (1988) (Italian title: Oltre la morte, a.k.a. After Death)
Zombie 5: Killing Birds (1987) (Italian title: Uccelli assassini, a.k.a. Killing Birds)

In the 1990s several unrelated titles were released as Zombie sequels by T-Z Video (aka Edde Entertainment) These titles were as follows:

Zombie (1979)
Zombie 2 (the same film as Zombie)
Zombie 3: Return of the Zombies (1973) (original Spanish title: La orgía de los muertos, aka The Hanging Woman) (starring Paul Naschy, directed by José Luis Merino)
Zombie 4: A Virgin Among the Living Dead (1973) (original French title: Christina, princesse de l'érotisme, directed by Jess Franco, with additional scenes, directed by Jean Rollin, added for re-release in 1981.)
Zombie 5: Revenge in the House of Usher (1982) (original title: Revenge in the House of Usher, directed by Jess Franco)
Zombie 6: Monster Hunter (1981) a.k.a. Absurd (which is itself a pseudo-sequel to Joe D'Amato's Antropophagus)
Zombie 7 (Joe D'Amato's Antropophagus (1980) aka The Grim Reaper)



What a mess.

Do Right, Be Right. :)

Yanno, you've asked several times what I'm doing up so late, and yet it's never occurred to you my husband works third shift. I stay up until his lunch break is over so we can chat and then I go to bed. Plus, I LIKE going to bed at 2.
Now, you gonna get over this obsessiveness over when I go to bed??

I don't care. I'm not your Daddy.

You made a shitty post about me not having anything to do on a Saturday night, referencing a post that you happened to notice on Saturday night.

The post in question, on my part, was made at 3:00PM on a Saturday afternoon.

Your shitty post was a reply that was made on that very night.


It's kind of funny that I have to explain to you how that looks.

Do Right, Be Right. :)

Do I have to explain to YOU how stupid it is for you to question MY bedtime, repeatedly??

I don't even know what you're talking about. I'm up a lot of nights because I work night shifts and sometimes I'm posting here all night myself because I can't sleep. I don't give a shit about your posting times, your family life, or anything about you, Wishy.

Jeez... Narcissist much?

I don't know you well enough to have posted that in your stead, but all of those items were exactly what I was thinking. Plus, she still has her brain in her bung (que the rant).
