    The Aliens / Naked guy in the woods pitch sounds more like a comedy sketch to me.

    I liked the one about the guy euthanising people so they could go to heaven. He’s willing to bear the karmic burden of killing but for altruistic reasons, which gives the story an ironic ascension.

    There could be a sequence which charts the effect doing this has on him. Other sequences come to mind too.

    The movie would have a heavy existential tone, but could also be laced throughout with a sly dark humour.

    Would be interesting to see what the resolution of this story would be.
