The masked psycho goes around cutting of people's wieners.  

Now there's something to be afraid of.  Pretty sure nobody has done that.  




Not masked and it was only one victim, still...

Bigfoot ripped off some shmucks weiner in NIGHT OF THE DEMON, and Mom bit one off in the 1st LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT also...
I was thinking about this all day... find a good horror short story by Shirly Jackson or Clive Barker mebbe....I honestly dont know!

I'm not sure but perhaps if one were to explore much better the idea of complete isolation and the horrors of the effect.  I'm almost positive this has been done before so I'm not sure how valid but can't recall any movies to explore it.  The effects on the mind and one where the person confronts their own inside without any other character interaction.  You could also try something along the lines of space and deal with subjects such as a serial killer there or the effects of a single murder and how this leads to doubt and mistrust and the who done it.  I don't think any are particularly good but can't really think of much new.  There is always something new, if not in concept, angle.

Chiggers?
Poison Ivy?

I've seen it done in comedies, but I don't recall any horrors.

.OK-it's the not so distant future. A virus (from outer space or something) has infected every female in the world,turning them into ape-sh!t maniacs.
 
.Idea 2-It's the end of the world-the Apocalypse! Demons and Angels are on Earth fighting the war to end all wars. Untill it's over,humans are stuck in the middle-some taking sides with God,others with Satan. Most are justing running like cockroaches.

.Nother one-All the fish in the sea grow limbs or wings and crawl out of the sea and fish for humans.

.Ok-here's my best shot-GHOST APOCALYPSE-The whole world is hit with poltergeist activity-frogs and stones fall from the sky-people are attacked by furniture and kitchen utensils-spirits are roaming the earth scaring sh!t outta the populace. Ultra psychic people are the earths only hope! Can they send the threat back to the spirit world?

Ok-pretty lame-that's why I'm a factory worker-not a screenwriter.  Lookingup

You could do the Biblical plagues of Egypt, as experienced by an innocent Egyptian couple, and horror that up pretty well.

The Epic of Gilgamesh has a lot of material that would make good horror movies.

How about a story set on Noah's Ark?  That could be pretty scary, with the whole world being covered in water and maybe some supernatural God stuff and animals getting loose.

You can make almost anything into a horror movie, it's all in how you do it.

There really aren't very many horror movies set in ancient times.  Lots of cheesy stuff loosely based on some creature from myth, but it's almost all set in the modern day.

Maybe some grave robbers breaking into a pyramid to steal all the Pharaoh's gold (in 2500 BC), but encountering a supernatural curse.  That's been done in a lot of mummy movies, but it would be easy enough to take it in a completely different direction.

Okay, so...
A bunch of teenagers go camping.
They all get chiggers & poison ivy, and the canned beans make them nauseous.
Nothing really to be worried about, but it's their first camping trip, so they don't really know what's going on...
Thus, the seeds of doubt & suspicion begin to grow, making for a really formulaic psychological thriller.

We need more movies where the killer is undoubtedly human, i.e. makes mistakes, gets frustrated when their plan doesn't go smoothly, etc.  Like Hitchcock's FRENZY.

Something that might be interesting is if there's only one actor in the film.  They play about 20 characters or so.  It might be kind of funny to see them play both genders, maybe even dress up as a dog!  TeddyR

as for the weiner loss: my mind immediately goes to Reanimator 3. Towards the end the main chick bites off the cock of the evil prison warden. Of course by this time frame they are both reanimated zombies but they have a pretty funny closing credits in which the decapitated (but still "alive" from the serum) weiner is chasing a rat around the prison. Not quite the same but concept is similar.

I kindof liked the twist in "high tension" where the primary female protagonist who is trying to rescue the girl she has a crush on actually turns out to be the bad-guy (severe split-personality). Also here is where we learn that people don't kill people but repressed lesbian desires do. I thought that was a bit unique.

I know a new idea for a horror film, how about a film by Lion's Gate that uses less than their corporate pre-requisite of 50 gallons of fake blood. That would be unique.

A typical machete wielding masked slasher goes to stalk and kill a few teens, only to find out that one of the teens has already becomes the victim of one of those classic Dracula, Frankenstein, Wolfman teams, which leads up to a huge turf war between old school monsters and modern slashers with the rest of the town caught in the middle.

I like all of RC's ideas, maybe you should be a screenwritter. Every idea I can think of has been done. I love all the horny teens getting killed in the woods movies, but that's been done to death. So have all the tourture films like "Saw" and "Hostel." Maybe we should go back to the old monster movie formula. I would like to see a new generation of iconic monsters. But in this day and age people don't find creatures as frightening as real people. In fact that's why I don't find horror movies scary, as much as I love them, because the real world is a much scarrier place than the fantasy world.
