*A cyberpunk political drama set in a world where consciousness uploading is common and uploaded consciousnesses are permitted to vote. In this world political power is directly proportional to processing power. Parties gain additional votes for themselves by running many concurrent copies of uploaded supporters. Whichever party has the resources to copy its supporters the most times wins the election

*A skit examining the Trolley Problem, except it's set in Mr.Rogers' Neighborhood of Make-Believe, and instead of examining whether it's ok to kill one person to save several people, it examines whether it's ok to mildly bruise a real person to save the life of a make believe person.

*A person deals with the guilt of a hit-and-run accident in a world in which staying with the body of an accident victim causes them to magically come back to life. "magically come back to life" is the actual termonology used in the story. "If only I hadn't driven away," they lament, "than those people would have magically come back to life"

*Skit: fake commercial advertising a satanic version of Lucky Charms cereal with marshmallow goat heads, sacrificial daggers, voodoo dolls, and necronomicons

*Steampunk story where the twist is that instead of being set in the past it's set in the Amish areas of modern Penmsylvania

EDIT:
another idea:

*Sesame Street episode where the count goes full-on vampire and has to be subdued with the lowercase letter "t"

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.

Look up the Cereal Killers trading cards by Wax Eye; I think either their Lucky Charms or Trix parody does something like that  :lulz:
There is no reason to,
Be ashamed of poetry. It,
Is natural. But you should,
Still do it in private,
And wash your hands afterward.

A parody of A Clockwork Orange in which Alex is replaced with Schroeder from the comic strip Peanuts, his droogs are replaced with other Peanuts characters, and P.R.Deltoid's voice sounds like a trombone

EDIT:

"*Wah wah wah*"

"Not true, sir. It was only a slight tolchock. She was breathing, I swear it."

"*Wah wah*"

"You try to frighten me, sir, admit so, sir. This is some new form of torture."



EDIT:
Another idea:

Comedy sketch in which Charles Manson is a high school English teacher who assigns his students to analyze the symbolism in a "poem" which is actually the song "Helter Skelter" by the Beatles.

A Sesame Street episode dealing with religious diversity with a side focus on teaching alphabet letters, including muppet versions of various religious fingues including Jesus of Nazareth - who has an aside about the lowercase letter "t" - and Charles Manson - who teaches the kids about the letter "X"

A podcast which consists of voicemail, one person's and then another and another, so the conversation is chronologically disoriented.

A shaggy-dog-story/horror/suspense/comedy/drama about a Las Vegas magician who has committed a series of murders and been sentenced to death. The film follows the final hours prior to the execution, leading up to the execution itself. In the twist ending, the lights flicker during the execution, and when they come back on we see that the condemned man and the executioner have suddenly and inexplicably swapped places. The magician, now dressed in his full stage get-up, flicks the switch that sets the execution device going, and shouts "Ta-da". Then the credits roll.


EDIT:
Another idea:

Comedy skit: A spoof of The Big Bang Theory and Breaking Bad in which a drug dealing Walter White/Sheldon Cooper hybrid character pedantically berates his customers for not knowing the difference between amphetamine and methamphetamine

EDIT:
Another idea:

Horror-comedy. A group rents a cabin for a vacation. One bedroom of the cabin is haunted, the rest of the cabin is completely normal. The occupant of the haunted bedroom appears more and more insane to the others as the nature of the hauntings becomes more and more severe throughout the week and allows him diminishing amounts of sleep.

*A victorian sci-fi horror anthology program

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. It was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness. It was the season of shadows, it was the season of substance. It was an epoch of things, it was an epoch of ideas, and it lay between the pit of man's fears and the summit of man's knowledge..."

---------

*A combination mummy-film/vampire-film set in the USA. The sun is ineffective against vampires in the parts of the world between the USA and Japan because these regions fall within the "12 Hours of Night" wherein the sun-god Ra is "dead". Therefore to stop the vampire the protagonists must reanimate a mummy to fight it

Two guys decide to meet for the first time after texting for the seventh time, the second guy has a hard time finding parking in DC and it takes him forty minutes to find a tight spot after a fifty minute drive. Then a third guy circles the car for fifteem before telling him that if he ever gets a scratch on it he'll be the one to kill him. He waits till he leaves, rings the wrong doorbell at 6am, then gets to the right house, within watches a show, talks, snuggles up, smokes and the sex, during the first guy asks they second guy to marry him. They get bagels and coffee when they wake up after the guy to repair the AC walks in on them in the morning.

During the credits the fiance montage focuses on the second guy as he liquidated his past, apologizes to his fwbs, and cleans out his car while waiting for the first guy's fourth and final day on vaca in the CA

A satirical combination of Heaven is for Real and Michelle Remembers in which a sick child travels to heaven and is molested by God before returning to earth when the hospital revives them.

EDIT:

more ideas: I keep coming up with ideas for SyFy b-movie style horror flicks

*"Deathboat" - Victorian England's largest oceanliner strikes a zombie-infested iceberg. The zombies swarm in through the hole in the ship and wreck havoc as the ship slowly sinks

*"Loan Wolf" - The story of a werewolf banker

*The Picture of Dorian Gray retooled to be about televangelist Jim Bakker and how his inner nature as a clown-prostitute somehow manifested itself on the face of his wife Tammy Faye

*120 Days of Fairyland- A fantasy version of the Marquis de Sade's Les Cent Vingt Journees du Sodome. In this reimagining the rich libertines are replaced with unseelie elves, and the abuses that they inflict on their captibes and that their storytellers recount lean decidedly towards the magical, stuff like turning someone into a sow and putting them into a pen of horny boars

*A man becomes obsessed with the idea that different parts of his body might become cancerous and starts lopping them off. By the end of the story he's just a torso

*A parody of animes like Pokemon, Beyblade, and Yu-Gi-Oh in which a competition of some sort defines all of society. In this parody the competition is a literal dick measuring contest. The protagonist travels the world seeking pumps and pills and supplements so that he can be the best..

*A health class educational film for bugs (or possibly frogs), warning them about what to expect during metamorphosis

*A Terminator Christmas- An evil Christmas-hating AI from the future sends an android back in time to kill the Virgin Mary before she can give birth to the son of God

*A documentary about quantum physics which keeps people's attention by being hosted by a pair of hot twins who keep making crude double-entendres about the double slit experiment

*A fairytale/nursery rhyme themed film noir wherein Humpty Dumpty is a hardboiled detective

*A satirical combination of Heaven is for Real and Michelle Remembers in which a sick child travels to heaven and is molested by God before returning to earth when the hospital revives them.

*Blue Meth and Ham, a combination of Green Eggs and Ham and Breaking Bad

A fake documentary following the wildlife of a fictitious alien planet. No mention is made of humans or of sapient aliens or how this came to be filmed in-world. The focus is not space travel nor is it conservation, it is a straight wildlife documentary about fictitious animals

EDIT:
other ideas:

*A combination of Willard and the Disney version of Cinderella, in which the mice eat the abusive stepsisters and stepmother

*A christmas movie focused on what Santa does the rest of the year to fund his gift-giving operation. And its something unsavory like robbing banks or professional gambling or something. Or maybe pimping; Ho ho ho. Possibly the fact that he's santa claus is the twist ending. Like he's not in the red suit until the end, and while we see asome elves they're all wearing caps that conspicuously cover their ears until the very end.

THE KEENING:
The patriarch of an old irish family is dying -- or so it seems, from the family banshee's wails. He himself seems healthy, & does not believe that the rest of the family hears the wails -- which the family takes as evidence that he is the one who will die, since a family banshee can only be heard by members of the family whose death is not imminent. So, his two estranged sons are brought home, in preparation for one of them to take the inheritance. It is then discovered that the banshee is, in fact, a local keener -- a human professional mourner who has been paid by the patriarch to impersonate a banshee so that his sons would be brought home, as part of a test to determine if one of them is (as he suspects) illegitimate, the product of his late wife's affair (which she confessed to him on her death bed). The keener, apprehended, stays with the family during the storm that has just begun -- so they can keep an eye on her -- but the banshee wails continue that night, and the patriarch is found murdered in his bed the next morning. Our protagonist, the younger brother and second to arrive, suspects his elder brother -- a suspicion shared by the keener, with whom he has become romantically entangled after a series of encounters. The wailing is reported by the rest of the family the next night too, except the two brothers, neither of whom hear anything. In the dead of night, the keener kills the elder brother & her paramour finds her washing her bloody clothes by the river in the rain: she expected the two of them to get married, and was trying to protect the inheritance from a usurper from outside the bloodline proper. That night, for the first time, he hears the banshee wail -- and nobody else does, save the keener.
