I woke up this morning realizing it’s now 2011, and the future we
were promised still hasn’t arrived. No jetpacks, no spaceships, no
laser guns. We never even returned to the moon… assuming we ever went
there in the first place. I mean, we’re a decade into the 21st
Century, and what do we have to show for it? The internet? Please.
Now hacks like me can bore you with our inane opinions and every
useless thought and feeling, not to mention shameless self-promotion.
So what? That’s not progress. And it certainly doesn’t make up for
the fact that the closest thing we have to a “droid” is a damn
cellphone. Anyway, in ironic protest, I decided to create a new
generation of kids who will someday wake up as arrested adolescents like
myself, disappointed and disenfranchised by unrealistic childhood
expectations of a world of tomorrow that will never actually happen.

Andy’s a good friend and someone I’m having the honor of collaborating with. When this harebrained idea popped out, this impossible to achieve full year commitment to cheese and monster glory, I had to bite. It’s going to be fun watching him challenge himself and you with creativity, schlock, and all the nooks and crannies of his geeky brain. I’m looking forward to this. So bear with us as this little experiment finds its stride.

“From the mind behind the mega-hit Syfy show you’ve probably never heard of (EUREKA)
comes a tribute to all those no-budget Syfy original movies and the “so
bad, they’re good” films that inspired them. Move over Roger Corman,
step back Ed Wood, make way on your weekend programming schedule Mr.
Stern, because here comes Andrew Cosby’s 365 DAYS OF SCI-FI.
And it’s all happening here! Each day, your friends at CHUD will
bring you a brand new bad movie pitch — the best of the worst title
Cosby can come up with, no matter where he’s at or what he’s doing, rain
or shine, drunk or sober. That’s a whole year of the quality concepts
you’ve come to expect from the network that brought you MANSQUITO and SHARKTOPUS.”
So let’s get this party started…DAY ONE…
With the help of global warming and a convenient
offshore drilling disaster, a giant prehistoric fish with a taste for
human flesh is freed from the icy depths to terrorize an unsuspecting
group of tourists, turning their dream vacation into a living nightmare.
Nick Says: I’d totally see this. It mixes three of my favorite things: Hateful Fish, Ancient Beasts Who Awaken Grumpy, and People in Torment. I think Cosby’s onto something here. Looks like a juicy starring role for Miguel Ferrer as the Oceanographer with a secret and a nice resume filler for Tom Noonan as the Resort Owner with a secret. Toss in Amanda Plummer as the heiress with a secret and Lance Guest as the SCUBA instructor with a secret and we are cooking with GAS. What’s Greg Cannom been doing lately? We need a few rod puppet killer fish, STAT!
