Late last night I was thinking about video games being turned into movies. There are so many out there already, like Super Mario Brothers, Street Fighter, Doom... Then I began to think about the classic game, Pac Man. You remember him right? Well, when you sit down and think about it, Pac Man would be a great horror film and here's why.
The enemies are ghosts and we all know that you can't kill what's already dead. You can try, but unless your Scooby Doo and part of Mystery Inc. you won't get the better of them. Not too mention that the only way Pac Man has been able to slow them down is by taking a power pill (which in the game turns the ghosties blue which allows Pac Man to eat them) plus, the game itself is endless and those power pills get harder to find and become less effective as the game goes on.
Taking all that into consideration, here's what it breaks down to: A no-win, never-ending quest with unstoppable enemies and extreme drug use. That sounds like a pretty dark premise to me. What do you think?
