Coming Soon! Film Conceptualization Made E-Z!

I have this psychic ability. I can predict the new season of Netflix films before these films are even announced!

To illustrate, I’ve been brainstorming here, a list of great ideas for innovative new films from Netflix Studios. The elevator pitches, below. What do you think!?!?! Amazing, huh?

A group of teenagers goes camping in a cabin in the woods, and at night, some of them start disappearing because OMG THERE’S SOMETHING OUT THERE!!!!

Aliens are invading Earth, and it looks bad, but a group of superheroes team up and fight them with all their combined powers!!!!

Boy meets girl, and they really hate each other, but then [something happens here] that throws them together and they discover that they don’t really hate each other at all! What a surprise! They can’t live without one another!!!!

On vacation in Italy (or India or Mexico or Russia or China), the beautiful, bright, teen-aged boy (or girl) of a mild-mannered single Mom (or Dad) is killed in crossfire between criminals. Mom (or Dad) then takes a crash course in becoming a killing machine and hunts them all down like dogs!!!!

After the divorce (or the death of the young husband), a woman reluctantly takes a trip to [exotic place here], where she discovers her true self and finds the real meaning of love!!!! The real meaning is (choose one): a) you have to love yourself first!!!! or b) you have to bury the ego and become focused on loving!!!! (so deep, huh?)

Married guy finds himself in lust with X, only to discover, when he gets with her, that she’s a psycho killer in league with (Satan, the Illuminati, the Russian mob, aliens from Alpha Draconis, an evil AI or corporation bent upon world domination)!!!!

Woman marries the dream guy, Mr. X, only to discover, when she gets with him, that he’s a psycho killer in league with (Satan, the Illuminati, the Russian mob, aliens from Alpha Draconis, an evil AI or corporation bent upon world domination)!!!!

He’s the perfect candidate—young, charming, good-liking, kind—the antidote to the weariness of the country—but once he’s in office, people start figuring out that he is actually controlled by (Satan, the Illuminati, the Russian mob, aliens from Alpha Draconis, an evil AI or corporation bent upon world domination)!!!!

Three friends go on a road trip, and what a wild and wacky time it is because–are you ready for this?–they’re all virgins and don’t wannabe!!! (parental guidance suggested)

Three guys wake up in a hotel room in (Vegas, Reno, Bangkok) and don’t remember what happened last night, but when they do. . . .

There. And guess what, I have twelve more ideas EVERY BIT AS ORIGINAL AS THESE ARE!!!! Eerie, huh? And I still have plenty of exclamation marks left over!!!!!!!

I know. I make this look easy, as though a nine-year-old could do it. (Come to think of it, it must be nine-year-olds who do it.)
