    Harsher Titles

    Basically the inverse of the Gentler Horror Films thread - familiar titles of films, books, TV shows etc with alterations to make them negative, dreary, cruel or whatever. The best I've ever seen is "Driving Over Miss Daisy". Let's see if anyone can better this!

    A few suggestions to get the ball rolling:

    Rundownton Abbey
    Pride and Extreme Prejudice
    Lukewarm Bodies

    Can't think of any others, and those weren't great!
