It's pretty often that I hear bad film ideas, probably a daily occurrence. Often enough, those bad ideas become bad films, which are rampant in today's industry. This isn't a shocker. What I always enjoy though is when I hear a film pitch and it sounds terrible until I take a closer look and it's actually awesome.
J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions is making a film called SEVEN MINUTES IN HEAVEN, based on the popular (still?) teenage party game. Sounds pretty dumb, right? Well, the actual brief synopsis for the film is as follows (I imagine some nerd pitching me the idea):
"Two teens go into a closet together to engage in the titular game, when they come out all of their friends are dead."
