God starts Rapturing people and returning them to live among the damned. They then become targets of security agencies wanting to extract their knowledge of The One. This sekret is something they are willing to die for, categorically. All those captured perish at the hands of interrogators. The only intelligence ever obtained was that the unsubs thought they were saving the world by withholding from it this information. Rumor has it one or two of them managed to evade detection and are now very public figures that sincerely dedicate their lives to eradicate the global specter of monotheism

It is an unfortunate fact that every man who seeks to disseminate knowledge must contend not only against ignorance itself, but against false instruction as well. No sooner do we deem ourselves free from a particularly gross superstition, than we are confronted by some enemy to learning who would plunge us back into the darkness -H.P.Lovecraft

He who fights with monsters must take care lest he thereby become a monster -Nietzsche

As part of a national PR stunt, the government creates a centralized school for child prodigies -- a boarding school with lots of expensive facilities on an island. However, when their cold war turns hot, the first strike isolates the school during a period when only a skeleton crew of administrators were there -- all the child prodigies of the nation are stuck on an island together with very little adult supervision -- and because this is a total war and the invasion is aggressive, it's not until after the war (which takes about five years) that contact with the island is reestablished. The population is much lower, and those who have survived are very much changed, finding it difficult to reintegrate into society. Likewise, political changes between the patriotic lead-up and the reconstruction are hard to navigate.

Did I already post my idea about Santa Claus-esque vampires that can be temporarily appeased with milk and cookies but can only be permanently destroyed by being boiled with their own pudding and buried with a stake of holly through their heart? Their power is greatest at the winter solstice because that is when night is the longest.

EDIT:
Related idea: Mothlike reverse-vampires that are attracted to light

EDIT:
Unrelated, not particularly interesting idea:
A doctor with an obsession with repairing anything that breaks around him. This obsession with fixing broken things is why he went into medicine as well.

The singularity reveals that the AI we thought ourselves to be building was actually studying our participation in a blind experiment. Particularly, to investigate the suspension of recognition that regulates individuation as to enhance performance under the hypothetical pretense of personal freedom.
just this

A film adaptation of I Am Legend that goes in exactly the opposite direction of the 2007 Will Smith version. Instead of the twist ending being dropped it's not even a twist; it's clear from the beginning that there are no vampire-zombies, just a bunch of sunburnt aphasics and a psychotic doomsday prepper mad scientist who's jumped to some very extreme conclusions and ideally is played by Jeffrey Combs

EDIT:
Another idea:

A satirical holiday special revolvong around the birth of Mammon

Brain chips improve memory by listening to call and response signals from the hippocampus and mimicing them; unfortunate side effect: these chips solidify memory too much and the memories don't mutate over time, so every one retains the vividness and emotional intensity of a PTSD flashback, memories of memories of memories compounding. Without the possibility of confabulation, all memories become traumatic, because their raw emotional edges cannot be sanded off by repeated handling.

I think I may have posted one or both of these ideas before, but I'm not sure so here goes:

*A bizarre retelling of the first Thanksgiving in which the teamup between the pilgrims and the natives results from a famine but rather from the need to team up to defeat a nazi turkey named "Joseph Gobbles" (who is eventually killed with some kind of improvised flamethrower cobbled together from 17th cenyury items, thus creating the tradition of cooking turkeys)

*An action-adventure-fantasy movie that takes all the weirdest shit from the bible (ezekiel's angels, ezekiel's army of the dead, jacob's ladder, everything in revelations, etc) and related traditions (kaballah, gnosticism, the scene in the koran where the moon is split in half, etc) and combines it with the Cthulhu Mythos (including a conflation of Yog-Sothoth with YHVH-Sabaoth) and occasionallt fight choreography reminiscent of wuxia films - into an offensively scripturally inaccurate story about the Dagon worshipping Philistines and the Yog-Sothoth worshipping Canaanites fighting a war (all of the abovementioned things are shoehorned into a single war) against each other with both sides making heavy use of both black magic and hollywood martial arts.

An mturker keeps being assigned to transcribe voice and handwriting material from the same source -- each one a clue to what appears to be a conspiracy of murder and corruption -- but the real mystery is: who is manipulating the ranking algo to convince this particular mturker to want to investigate this third party, and why are they being framed?

Graphene byproducts from supersemiconductor & nanomachine manufacturing pose an environmental problem because nearby spiders produce webbing that cannot be broken without diamond-tipped tools. We follow the personal life of a specialist janitor who exclusively removes crystalline webbing from waste exhaust pipes, as he discovers that the spiders have plans.

A touch-telepath working for a clandestine intelligence agency starts a massage parlor catering to members of organized crime syndicates, but discovers that one of the major organized crime families is run by vampires -- and that she can extract information from bodily fluids (including the blood sucked by her vampire clients)! Under orders from her contact, she becomes a vampire herself, drinking the blood of various people who might be useful as informants and essentially continuously intercepting their stream of consciousness. She discovers that her contact does not actually work for the government and is instead just a con artist who put a lot of effort into convincing her that she was a spy for the sake of indulging in a bizarrely specific sexual fetish. She gathers some evidence and turns him into the real feds.

Some ideas:

*The first attempt to colonize Mars runs in to trouble when the planet is discovered to be overrun with the ghosts of violent religious fanatics, as per Dante

*A raunchy horror-comedy about a succubus who sucks people's souls through their penises

*One panel cartoon - Parent berates their toddler urging them to eat: "If you don't finish your food you'll never develop heart disease and diabetes"

EDIT:
Another idea:

*A commercial for male enhancement pills where Santa Claus testifies that he used "only come once a year" until he tried these pills

EDIT:
Another idea:

*A zombie apocalypse sweeps through a rutal redneck communiry. The average intelligence of the townspeople improves post-zombification due to having started so low

EDIT:
Another idea:

A crooked greedy televangelist is visited by three ghosts and taught not to be a greedy SOB

EDIT:
Another idea:

*There's a lot of shows out there where the premise is that it's somehow based on Sherlock Holmes except it's set in modern times, but I don't think I've ever seen one where the main character smokes a crack pipe. Think about it, what were Holmes famous vices? Pipe smoking and cocaine! I wanna see a show about a mystery solving crackhead.

EDIT:
Another idea:

Comedy skit: Pinhead co siders leaving the Order of the Gash and converting to Judaism but backs out when he finds out about circumcision.
