What mixed-genre premises would you find disturbing? Here's an example: "Mel Brooks and Akira Kurosawa collaborating on one movie." (Mixing Ninja Hero with extreme doses of comedy) Let's see what ideas you can come up with? Edit: This was just something that came to me totally at random.

Re: Genre-crossover nightmares how about mixing movie titles/genres to come up with a very different movie? This is Spinal Taps Rocky Horror Picture Showboat BrigaDune Dirty Harry and the Hendersons When Dirty Harry Met Sally The Empire Strikes Back to the Future Jumping Jack Flash Gordon or for real fun Jumping Jack Flesh Gordon Run Silent Run Deep Throat The Prince of Crimson Tides Mother, Jugs, and Speed 2 or how about different authors writing well known books Tom Clancy writing Harry Potter if I go digging somewhere I have the list of nearly 500 mixed movie titles that the folks on alt.callahans put together

Oh, that sort of thing I've been doing for years.

The Godfather of La Mancha
My Fair Matrix
The Road to Oz (think Hope & Crosby, with Don Knotts as the lion)
CATS on a Hot Tin Roof
Phantom Menace of the Opera

Re: Genre-crossover nightmares

Free Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory


I always thought Willy Wonka's chocolate factory was a good place to stage a horror game. Wonka has always been so creepy, like Micheal Jackson after he decided to be white.

And why stop at movies for cross-genre HERO gaming possibilities?

Hamster Horror HERO

Maybe even make some bad puns too.

Moral Kombat (every 20 years, Ministers around the world gather to beat the living ba-Jesus out of each other. I know, long ****ing way to go for a joke.)

Yeah, "The Return of the Native" was a nightmare starting out. Not even ninja-pirates could save that story.

Lost in Spice

The Space Family Robinson crashland on Spiceworld.

Lucius Alexander

The palindromedary notes that Lucius has wanted to use that one ever since both those movies (both probably long since forgotten by everyone else) were running at about the same time. But for really disturbing cross-genre action, send the Spice Girls to Dune.....

Briga-Dune.


Somebody else did that.
