Ever wonder what happens when a coming of age teen comedy gets corrupted by Lovecraftian cults? Then read End Times at Ridgemont High.

Ian Welke (mewelke) | 13 comments Thanks! Sometimes you can't help but see the idea through... no matter how odd.

What if a Prestigious School’s Student Council President were to Read Abdul Alhazred’s Necronomicon?

Awesome. Seen a couple anime involving the Necronomicon now, but haven't seen one set in a school.

There are no original ideas. So don't feel bad. Whether it's in the air (people seem to invent the same thing at the same time w/o communicating) or because there are only like 4 stories being retold over and over.

Ian Welke (mewelke) | 13 comments Indeed! I'm just always curious to see as many of the varieties as possible. There are so many great stories, often around similar themes or even setting off from similar plot ideas. If I'm making any sense... the coffee this morning seems to be defective.

Leesa (leesalogic) | 653 comments Since the movie of similar title is one of my favorites, I won't be able to resist this :)

Excellent! I think that anyone who remembers the movie or even rarer, Crowe's sadly out of print book (collection of Rolling Stone articles the movies based on) will be in for a treat with the bits that are parody or (hopefully veiled) commentary on the way things have changed.
