365 days of Sci-Fi

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.

And now… DAY SEVEN:

“In the midst of prep on my dark fantasy revenge film, THE UNTAMED (based on the Stranger Comics series from Sebastian Jones), I thought it only fitting to present a much tamer/lamer concept that’s a bizarre mash-up of two of my favorite movie genres.  Or as I like to think of it, ‘Little House on the Faerie.’

- Andy Cosby

“The West just got wilder.”

Pitch:

Attacked by outlaws on their way to a new life on the open frontier, a group of settlers take refuge in a cave nestled high in the Bear River Mountains.  Forced deeper into the labyrinthine caverns by their pursuers, the settlers become lost and unable to find their way back. Running low on supplies, they begin to lose hope, until a young boy stumbles upon a way out — an ancient stone passageway covered in cryptic runes.  Emerging days later, the settlers are amazed to find they’ve been magically transported to a strange and magical new world populated by elves, trolls, goblins, unicorns and all manner of other fantastical creatures.  Unable to return to the western world, the settlers stake their claim right there in the land of faerie, giving birth to a unique frontier town known as Runestone.  Here, man and myth live in delicate harmony, while the little boy who led his people to freedom finds his place in a world that is not his own… a world where he is destined to become a hero.

Nick Says: OK, how bad are the effects going to be? Because, I don’t want to see no photorealistic goddamn goblins.
