    This was really funny. That House clip almost looked like it could have been a Japanese energy drink spoof from 30 Rock! When I looked at the synopsis of that movie on Wikipedia, it sounds like the rest of the movie is just as insane, if not more. Hilarious! The hobo on the toilet one was kinda weak, I thought. It was so awesomely bad that it was just… bad. The Plague Dogs sounds awesome and depressing, I had never heard of that movie or book. The one death scene that just killed me as a kid is nothing like any of these, but I still can’t think about it without getting a funny feeling in my stomach, and that’s the original The Fly. “Help me!” I watched it again when I was older and more jaded, and it still got to me. I wonder if, after watching these ten, it still would…
