A fringe political party backed by organized crime controls a network of seemingly-independent roadside palmistry shops & new-age stores -- organizing fortunes & stocking books in a plan to manipulate voters

Anime where all conflicts are settled with rap battles
I'd watch the fuck out of this. Three quarters of shonen fighting anime battles are just people yelling snide remarks at each other interspersed with infodump flashbacks anyway, so why not remove the punching altogether? (Battle anime about cooking competitions have become extremely popular so it's not like this is an unproven premise.)

Elvis, despite everything, is an A-list celebrity, although his impersonators may be C-list. I'm talking about people who professionally impersonate the lead actors in Asylum titles, people who were rejected in the first episode of reality TV shows, people used as examples during presidential election campaigns, the spokespeople for RC-level soda brands, or youtube personalities with 10k subscribers.

A parody of The Haunting of Hill House called The Haunting of White House, from the perspective of a scatterbrained narcissist who is influenced by the angry ghosts of the dead to join the government.

While his squad is investigating an insurgent attack on an archaeological dig, a soldier with a macabre sense of humor finds a notebook on the corpse of an anthropologist describing ancient funerary cannibalism practices from a culture that believed eating the brain of the deceased allows their spirits to possess the living. When one of his squadmates gets killed, he tries it, jokingly, but it works. Later, more and more of them are killed, even ultimately in their bunks, and he eats each one, until he discovers that the first squadmate has been possessing his body in order to get revenge on the rest of the group for not protecting him properly.

Horror film about a Jesus-like reverse vampire that shoots blood at people's faces from holes in it's hands and if it gets in their mouths and they swallow any they turn into one themselves

A wealthy adventurer forms a party around himself to quest to defeat some ancient demon king, but as the story progresses it becomes clear that, out of a warped sense of sportsmanship and a huge overestimation of the ability of the party, this adventurer has hired mercenary bands to make their quest more difficult. His arc is coming to terms with the fact that an adventurer's life is actually serious -- these tasks are life-or-death risks -- and when the stakes are so high, misplaced chivalry is tantamount to being a traitor.

A derelict alien generation ship crash-lands on earth. The original inhabitants died out due to ecological collapse tens of thousands of years earlier, but exobiologists are fascinated by all the information about how extraterrestrial vines evolved in a gravity-free environment.

A combination of westerns and Yu-gi-oh/Pokemon/Beyblade style animes. It's basically a western except all of the gunfights are replaced with games of poker that are inexplicably treated with all the seriousness and finality of an actual gunfight
I would watch the fuck out of this. Sounds a lot better than Kakegurui (though probably with less agehao)

In the future, wars are fought by psychokinetics in sensory deprivation tanks controlling large humanoid puppets. The psychokinetics are rare, and puppets are used because the human-like body plan makes them easier to control, however, the plan is worthwhile because they are cheaper than tanks, basically disposable, remote-operated, and impossible to jam -- furthermore, a team of five or six elite psychokinetics can control an army of skyscraper-sized puppets by themselves, if given the right drugs.
