Here’s an interesting if difficult question - what are you surprised has never actually been made into a movie, television show or other form of popular media. I’m not really talking about strange or unusual ideas - like Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter - but more like something that seems obvious, but you can’t think of anything that actually did that.
For example, a few years ago, someone on the forum mentioned the idea of Zombie Dinosaurs - basically DAWN OF THE DEAD meets JURASSIC WORLD. We’ve gotten ZOOMBIES and NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM gave us a skeleton T-rex, but we really haven’t seen dinosaur zombies. I think that would at least rate a low-budget comedy horror film, but I can’t really think of anything that I would call Zombie Dinosaurs.
For me, the most obvious idea that I’ve never even seen a hint of would be HAUNTED WHITE HOUSE. Basically, what if the White House was haunted by a killer ghost? Or even a MONSTER IN THE WHITE HOUSE story - I can’t think of one (surely there is at least a horror novel that is set in the White House somewhere). Something like an aide or movie star has an affair with the president, gets killed to cover it up and then comes back from the dead for revenge. It seems like an obvious story with the First Lady or First Daughter as the innocent protagonist, but I’ve never seen it. Did I miss it?
Given the completely predictable nature of the various movie and pop entertainment genres, what are the “likely stories” that you’re surprised you’ve never seen?
