The story of Oedipus reimagined to involve time travel. Laius and Oedipus are combined into a single character who is his own father and has a fatal altercation with himself

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.

Hajimete no Shoggoth! / My First Girlfriend is a Shoggoth!
Suzune is a little bit sheltered -- her parents have discouraged her from socializing outside of school, for fear that it would impact her studies. But, she was told that once she entered high school she'd be allowed to go out & even date. So, after school on her first day of high school she goes into the city, where she's promptly accosted by a group of older boys who want to take her to 'karaoke'. She doesn't really know what's going on, but she's saved when she hears someone shout "HENSHIN!" and they are engulfed by a blob of putrid flesh. A girl about her age with strangely damp skin takes her hand and brings her to safety. I turns out this girl is a shoggoth who, upon accidentally thawing from an antarctic sample in the apartment of an archaeologist, accidentally imprinted on the transforming hero show he was watching & was given the following prime directive: hide your true nature, protect the weak, and fight for justice. Can love bloom between this naive teenager and this justice-obsessed shape-shifting blob of alien goo? Of course it can: it says so in the title!

A young couple come across an AirBnB listing for a house that describes it as haunted, & decide to stay there on a lark. Not only is it actually haunted but it has no owner: the house, abandoned except for its own warped psyche, has rented itself out in order to find victims, whose life force it will slowly drain away to sustain itself. The couple eventually find the basement full of stacks of emaciated, lethargic, and prematurely-aged members of various amateur ghost-hunting youtube vlog groups, recognizable by their matching t-shirts.

Those shiny little flecks aren't glitter: they're an alien life form. They take little tiny bites, and they're reproducing! Scarlet, peach, burgundy, emerald, forest green -- all these colors are only possible because, like any bottom-feeder, these little buggers take on the pigments of whatever they eat -- and they'll eat every part of you, no matter the color!

 Because of an enduring personnel problem, pets will now be matched to simulate the character of their 'owners'. This is meant to generate a personal rapport that approximates the identification of one to other. Secretly, these pets will record everything their owner does for posterity. Because of that enduring personnel problem, the owner's next-life parents will be clones programed with the data obtained from their pets.

I want to see a version of Dracula set in the modern day and done as a found footage movie. Because the found footage horror film closely matches the format of the original novel (which might be described as "found letters")

EDIT:
Another idea:
Dumbo but with a different ending. He's not still able to fly after he loses the magic feather. People are unsurprised to see him splat on the geound, commenting that the kaws of physics would have to take a holiday for an elephant to fly under its own power. The feather really is magic. At the end of the film we see the magic feather being loaded into the warehouse from the end of Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark

The one aspect of spiritualist practice that's not a hoax is ectoplasmic emanations. A hundred years after the last recorded instance, a young woman once again learns to use telekinesis to form and animate figures made out of her own vaginal mucous -- figures that execute her suppressed desires during her increasingly-frequent bouts of somnambulism. After a mishap involving sleeping pills, she goes into a coma -- and the ectoplasmic figures must be hunted down & dispersed with flash lights.

A couple of ideas

*The Matrix, except at the end it turns out that neither world is real and Mr.Anderson is just a paranoid schizophrenic

*An alternate history in which America lost the Cold War but nevertheless remained pretty much the same and didn't change significantly (like real world Russia)

Psychic powers are caused by insufflation of a cocaine-like drug. Unfortunately, people with psychic powers have an exaggerated sense of their own abilities and importance and some difficulty accurating predicting the consequences of their actions as a result.

So, Garth Ennis's The Boys.
Well, that's hardly my fault.  I was just doing what I do, doing my little dance, singing my little song, you know?  And then Hirley0 got on the dance floor and said

SHAKE THAT
First ^  Then V

And I did.  I didn't feel like I had any choice.  Between P-Funk and Hirley0, I became the man reptillian menace I am today.

Bootsy Collins did this to me.

With the advent of long-term space shipping (required by not-quite-self-suffcient colonies on the moons of Jupiter), ship's cats take on extra importance: just as airplanes are infested with mice, so too are the intra-system transport vessels that, with a skeleton crew, spend ten to fifteen years shipping staples like flour that can't be grown so far from the sun out to the colonies. As a result, polydactyl cats are bred on space stations, where they are exposed to both free-fall and a variety of g-forces through centrifugal chambers. First contact with an alien race occurs when an alien ship attempts to conquer one of these cat-nursery stations, to the aliens' peril.

Cats die in free fall.

The combined feng shui of a skyscraper in Dubai and a parking lot in Singapore diffracts the global ley line network. The luck waves interfere with themselves, creating banding: along odd lattitudes, winning the lottery is common, while even lattitudes are subject to repeated natural disasters. As people begin to migrate accordingly, slowly, the bands begin to expand and shift. Eventually, a signal appears: a repeating video clip stretched across the globe, encoded in patterns of misery.
