Just try to look at some of these Hollywood pitches chronicled by this guy in his blog:
"Carl Flue, a Los Angeles detective who suffers from a
paralyzing fear of knives, must face down an ancient
Aztec sacrificial knife that has possessed the minds
of several people and turned them into invincible
killers that serve the knife's bloodlust."
I personally like that one about the horror professor.
