Also, did you read the Supernatural one? Even this website ships it:

"Two gorgeous brothers with major-league Daddy issues seek out monsters and kill them in various nasty ways, using things as diverse as salt-filled shotgun shells, barbed wire, and circular saws. Lots of sex is had along the way. A really great car and lots of eighties rock, apocalypses, and angst are also involved. The world really really sucks, but it's funny anyway.

* Alternate, less-detailed version: A sad couple drive around."
This is hilarious! (and more difficult than I thought it would be)
