In fact, all you have to do is try and pitch a zombie or vampire pic for people to roll their eyes at you, i.e., the market is totally unreceptive to these types of scripts.
And that's why my above list, is pretty much guaranteed to get them eyes 'a rollin' back into those skulls.

On the flipside of that coin, I'd bet my measly bank balance, that a lot of "eye rolling" happens in every genre. Reason being, a lot of specs all follow the same thread. Very few stand out from the pack.

That's my 2 cents (bare in mind, it's my only 2 cents)

The very thought gives me shivers down the spine and makes my hair stand on end.. Yukky!!!

That'd introduce a little verisimilitude into the dialogue..

Terrance, you're a bad influence and you got me messing in class..
