A pseudo-documentary revealing how Lee Harvey Oswald's existence was faked by a retrocausal rabbit demon. In reality, he was based on a fictional character from the book The Idle Warriors. The cognitive dissonance induced in the author of the book, who now remembered serving alongside Mr. Oswald, in addition to inventing his character entirely, led to his madness.

Speaking of Oswald, how about a sensationalized retelling of the events leading up to the Kennedy assassination wih a Discordian and Lovecraftian twist, wih he Honest Book of Truth playing the role of the Necronomicon (Oswald knew Kerry Thornley) and the "magic bullet" actually being magic.

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

A movie or tv show focusing on ninjas that deliberately swerves erratically between realism and riduculous Naruto-esque fantasy. It will include things like a character successfully moving fast enough to theoretically catch bullets, only to be thwarted by said bullets simply continuing throigh their hands, shattering their metacarpals in the process.

A political drama (think House of Cards or The West Wing) with some animated minor/mascot characters popping up every so often to explain procedural details (like how fillibustering works). Early on these mascot characters are almost wholly non-diagetic, but over time there will be occasional gags that imply that some character sees them or is somehow effected by them without noticing (such as repeating word for word part of their immediate previous explanation). Over time, the explanations they give get less and less grounded in reality, and a sub-plot emerges wherein several minor characters talk to each other about the strange things they've been experiencing and vow to investigate. The punch-line: the water supply for the building has been spiked with a hallucinogen that encourages telepathy, and all of these back-stabbing politicians are sharing a group hallucination.

i don't know what kind of story this would be but i want a scene where the protagonist and antagonist square up and talk before the big climax and the big bad goes on about how he is so ruthless and will win because the hero has scruples whereas he is willing to do anything to win, and then this happens.

Hero: so you'll do anything to win, is what you're saying?
Bad Guy: Of Course! Kill any innocent! Raze any village, Crush any army! Nothing will stand in my way!
H: alright then*takes out cell phone* Call your mum.
BG: what?
H: call your mum, and if you can talk to her for one hour, without lying or losing your temper, me and my guys will stand down and let you win.
BG: what really?
H: yea really.
BG: haha, fool! The day shall be mine!
*15 minutes later*
BG: Gah, i give up!*hangs up angrily*
Hero: "so then, you will do anything to win, so long as its not calling your mum, then?"

An ultra-violent revenge film (in the vein of Kill Bill or the features it imitated) wherein fight scenes are shown using super-deformed (i.e., low-detail/cartoony/cutesy) animation, but the aftermath of the fight is shown completely realistically (if not with significantly greater gore than is realistic).

A talking animal cartoon set in a research laboratory. The protagonists are dissected, and vivisected, and deliberately exposed to dangerous chemicals, and have parts of their brains removed while they are still alive. The show never gets moralistic though. Everything is played for laughs.

EDIT:
Another idea:
A pseudo-christian gameshow featuring an obstacle course based on he stations of the cross/vis dolorosa

Another Idea:
Kingsmen fanfic. The effects of the partially deployed doomsday device are interpreted by the masses as a sign from heaven resulting - due to the nature of the device - in Discordianism receiving a huge influx of fair-weather converts

EDIT:
Another idea:
My problems with nighttime teeth grinding gave me this idea. What if there was a horror movie where the protagonist's lower jaw was posessed by the devil (like the hand in Evil Dead 2)

EDIT:
Another idea:
A superhero team whose "powers" are sideshow-esque deformities (I got the idea after misreading the phrase "world's fastest man" as "world's fattest man")

EDIT:
Another Idea:
A man is stranded on an island within sight of the mainland, but it's not a part of the mainland where anyone ever goes who might see him and rescue him, and he's too out of shape to swim it.

First contact is made wih a race of space aliens from a starless nomad planet which is drifting past our solar system. The aliens have struck out into the solar system to gather enough resources to sustain them until the next time their world drifts past a star system.

EDIT:
To give you an idea of how my mind works, that last idea was inspired by a verse of Here We Come A Wassailing, "Good master and good mistress as you sit beside your fire, pray think of we poor children who wander in the mire"

Star Trek style space opera. Crew of starship are menaced by energy beings that feed on negative emotions. The crew are ultimately saved by their bad attitudes, which cause the energy beings to die of obesity.


EDIT:
Another idea:
A starving village of cartoon cats hires the Pied Piper to lead the children of the nearby village of cartoon mice to them. But when the cats don't pay the Piper he leads such mouse children as were not immediately devoured back to their parents.

EDIT:
Another idea:
A recidivent Ebeneezer Scrooge is visited by the ghosts a second and third time.

Another idea:
Bizarre Foods combined with Pink Flamingoes and thereby taken to its theoretical extreme in a tv show about a guy who travels the world to ingest the dung of exotic animals.

Sudden rash of brand-new & apparently non-communicable STD raises alarm at free clinics throughout 50 contiguous states.  It is not mortality or transmission that is significant, rather, that the infection is absolutely immune to all and any form of treatment.  The cutaneous irritation slowly weaves itself inside-out the entire external surface area of a subject with tentacular porcelain tendrils of silken chain-mail.  At completion, the exo-skeleton starts to play itself like a cicada in heat, before it sheds its skin.  At which point a decrepit alien rerurns to earth and claim said custom tailored suit by producing a crystal ticket that would resonate and lift the brand-new armor to fit itself upon the extra-terrestrial entrepreneur.

Probably means not communicable by air or needles, or meant non-communicable VD

Perhaps some of them thought they were virgins, and, in some sense, they were?  Like the vector can only be transmitted from alien to human, not human to human?

That'll do it.  I was thinking sub-plots, of people trying to get "touched" by the disease: having sex with the infected, and categorically failing to get sick.  Like a religion forms around these chosen ones, and people think they are the most probable candidates for ascension, etc.

Yeah, it kind of can't be both.

So, a fantasy with no basis in science?
