_____ Meets ______
« on: June 24, 2007, 03:22:08 AM »
Man,movie pitches sound draining and sad whenever I hear about them.  From what I understand, the most common cliche for pitching your movie as describing it as some movie meets something else.

Now I want you to create a good sounding pitch for a ______ meets ______ pitch.  You can make it as cool or as goofy as you want.  Just have fun with it, let your imagination run wild and stuff.  Then leave the names of two books, movies, TV shows, video games or whatever for someone else to pitch.

Let's begin:

48 Hrs. Meets the Exorcist

Godzilla meets Gamera

(Actually, fans really want this, so I'll do an odd one.)

The Fly meets Mansquito

I should elaborate.  Actually describe in more detail the premise that is being presented to you and try to make it workable.

Oops. Okay, I'll start back at 48 Hrs. Meets the Exorcist:
CBS news sends out a team to investigate a supposed "excorsism" that resulted in two deaths, but the team finds themselves confronted by an ancient evil.

And now:
The Fly meets Mansquito

That actually wasn't the 48 hrs I intended but that was still cool.

A scientist startles the world with a new teleportation pod that takes the world by storm.  Unfortunately, by teleporting the same problem occurs tht happened in the Fly except this time it takes much longer for effects to be noticed since human DNA generally overpowers the other stuff.  However after years of people teleporting and absorbing their own mites (as in the kind of creatures constantly living on your body) an unpleasant change is sweeping over humanity.

I'll continue with Mr. Basehart's suggestion for Ghosts meet Ghostbuster (and it doesn't have to be the actual characters, though it can be.  Just a merging of premises.  Sorry if I didn't explain it well enough.
