Genre-crossover nightmares

Recommended Posts

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

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.....

X-Men Saga (Marvel's X-Men meets Excel Saga: Just imagine Jean Grey constantly dying, Cyclops knowing the Space Butler, Jubilee being unable to keep her monologues internal, Beast leading the Afro-Warriors, and Wolverine apparently being saught after as an emergency food supply. Oh, and there's a plot that only takwe place in the last five official issues and a speacial issue that's all about going too far.)
