I'd bet a movie based on Ravenloft would do well...given the current interest in vampires. Although, my real love would be to see a film based on
unlucky adventurers going through S series dungeons (competition ones designed to kill you), like Tomb of Horrors, etc.
If you've never done them, and get to, sometimes D&D competitions are really fun. One time, my whole group absolutely had slain an entire party (ok,
the druid got away, but only limpingly, and after we chased him down a bit...damn shapeshifters).
We had lost one party member already due to an ambush by monsters...but, in just a couple of rounds, we killed their whole party, while their initial
fireball only did 4 points of damage to me (I was playing an evil cleric, and had resist fire on me (and made a save, etc.)). I think they knew it was
bad when I laughed after the fireball. We slowed them, hasted our own party, and our CON fighter had STR gauntlets (looted from our fallen member).
So, what our mage's fireball didn't kill (our team was protected in a minor globe, except me), our fighter just hacked up.
As an evil cleric, I commanded the shadows that were in the dungeon designed to kill us (our DM somehow forgot that we evil clerics do that vs turning
them, and had to confer with other DMs when I did it)...and sent them to work them over too,
We looked at their table and saw them ripping up their character sheets as they died... Ahh...good times, good times.
