In this conspiracy thriller it is discovered by the protagonist that climate change denialism is a result of a cold-war era government program intended to deliberately promote global warming as a prelude to an invasion of Russia

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

How about a joke how-to video about how to root your phone or remove a computer virus which turns into a posession/exorcism flick, with the phone levitating and rattling around, and the guys trying to root it chanting prayers at it and invoking famous computer scientists as if they were saints ("Charles Babbage, pray for us. Alan Turing, pray for us. Grace Hopper, pray for us...") and possibly moving on to invoking the heroes from evil robot movies/games as well ("David Bowman, pray for us. Neo, pray for us. Sonic the Hedgehog, pray for us..."). Ultimately going through a thorough parody of the entire rite of exorcism, at the end of which the settings preventing root access are successfully banished.
There may also be some kind of conflation of electrical grounding with the live burial used to drive out the kandarian spirits in Evil Dead 4

EDIT:
Related idea: A skit about a man who is posessed by a non-English-speaking demon, that has to continually consult a guidebook and comes out with mangled phrases like "In Hell, your mother makes the fellatio"

A comic book about a group of mostly crippled crime-fighters who all have standard superhero origins but unfortunately had more realistic outcomes. One had his face burned off in a freak lab accident, one got skin cancer from exposure to Earth's yellow sun, one was bitten by a radioactive spider with no noteworthy effects whatsoever, et cetera.

The martians have a life cycle much like cicadas -- they sleep deep under the earth for 200 years and then awaken for 20 years to mate and do other things. Their technology is very advanced because they are a very ancient race. They are about to wake up, and they will be very angry about the probe that smashed into the surface in 1998.

A spy agency where agents take orders from a superintelligent network of three supercomputers called "Mother" starts to break apart when the three mothers begin to distrust each other and each sends factions of spies to work against the other two.

To Evangelion, The Avengers, or Dario Argento's Three Mothers trilogy?

Ah, I thought the "mother" reference was to good old Angleton.  It was his codename, apparently, and well, the rest of the plot fits in so well with what some people thought he was doing.

Spiritualism is proven. As a result, the land of the dead joins the UN and every major nation has a Hadean embassy. After all, they cannot militarily compete with all the greatest leaders and generals of the past. Unfortunately, between the power imbalance and the very different expectations and requirements the dead have, the state of the world doesn't look very good for the living...

Two versions of an idea:


1.) In the future international conflicts are settled with simulated battles and wars. People "killed" in said "battles" suffer no real ill effects but may not fight in further battles. In a country with mandatory military service this creates a perverse incentive to fight incompetently so they will be quickly removed from the ranks.

2.) The existance of valhalla is proven. This creates a perverse incentive for soldiers to recklessly and needlessly get themselves killed in battle.

Sort of a combination of The Shadow Over Insmouth and Raiders of the Lost Ark. The Deep Ones of Dagon have made a play for world domination and the only thing that can stop them is the Ark of the Covenant (in reference to the biblical story wherein the Ark is placed in the temple of Dagon by the Philistines, who had capyured it, and the next day the statue of Dagon is found prostrate before the ark with it's head smashed to pieces). The good guys in this novel/film are even deeper into weird Lovecraftian shit than the bad guys. The name of the judeo-christian god is consostently rendered as Yod-Sabaoth (cf. "Yog-Sothoth") amd in addition to being conflated with Yog-Sothoth the deity is also interpreted in a way that sensationalistically combines all the most outrageous aspects of Kabalistic, Gnostic, and SubGenius mysticism (this last one already being deliberately sensationalistic on it's own). They also make use of all the freaky stuff from the Book Of Ezekiel like angels with too many faces and reanimating skeletons. In the dramatic conclusion the deep one army is swept away after the hero recites an incantation over the recovered ark which unusually astute viewers may recognize to be the fake bible verse from Pulp Fiction translated into Hebrew.

An angry movie critic (or possibly an dissatisfied californian democrat wishing to sabotage the republicans) sends a robot back in time to stop Arnold Schwarzenegger from starring in The Terminator but winds up inspiring the movie to be made.

In the sequel (provided we go with the movie critic version) they go back themself to try to stop Twelve Monkeys from being made.

EDIT:
Another idea:
-Thanks to rampant genetic engineering of animals, the future is less like The Jetsona than it is like The Flintstones



--------------

EDIT:
Yet Another idea:
-A bizarre porno about a person who gets sex change surgery from human organ trafficking mobsters, and now every time yhey see a cop they hide their stolen penis inside something (usually a friend) beccause it's stolen and thus has to be hidden when there's cops about

-----------------

EDIT:
another idea:
a biopic about John Wayne Gacy which is also a prequel to Let's Visit the World of the Future in which Gacy is depicted as a messianic figure whose second coming will usher in the world of the fyture. Ideally it will also be a musical based on ICP songs in the same way that Mama Mia was based on Abba songs

Puppet Masters from the Fourth Dimension are granted a foothold on earth when a  land prospector accidentally opens a portal to our world by micturating on some quartz during routine inspection of a vacant lot.  Chaotic exavatioms ensue as the Masters grow their influence on earthlings in a manner directly proportional to the volume of dirt they can displace.

The problem is that there is no thetically absolute measure for this movement, meaning that the Masters can continue transporting a numerically identical plot from point A to point B, and back again, while continuing to accumulate power ad infinitum.  The thing is that the extent of their efficacy is duplicitously tragic.
