    What movie or TV show comes to your mind when you hear this description?
    For me, it's Hellraiser. The coolest thing about it is the cenobites, but they're in it for about 10 minutes MAX. The rest of the film has you following a family painfully aloof to the fact that there's a corpse emerging from the floorboard in the attic, while the stepmother is feeding him fresh bodies to regain his strength. It has some squeamish/cool sequences sure, but the whole thing about this puzzle box and Pinhead is a lot cooler.

  4. Home Improvement is a pretty lame story but how he became the tool man is pretty legendary.

    LOST had a really cool main plot, but they made it boring with subplots and flashbacks to stretch the show out over several profitable seasons.
    and then the ending sucked and ruined the coolness of the main plot

    I think game of thrones qualifies now. Because the show butchered the entire story.

    But those first few seasons were something else.

    I love the world and the atmosphere of The Purge but even with the series and multiple movies I still don’t think they’ve quite nailed it

    Wait for Villenvue to get it right. The SCI fi series was supposed to be the best so far.

    Yep. He was slangin’ crack for the Binford drug cartel when Mr. Binford took notice of him, promoted him to hitman, then eventually head of television promotions for their line of tools used to maintain a legitimate front.
