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 EIGHT:

“Night of the Lepus, Them, The Birds, Willard, Jaws, Cujo… seems like animals have been getting a bum rap in creature features as far back as I can remember.  I’ve enjoyed them all, but I thought it might be time to put a new spin on things and finally give our furry friends the recognition they so richly deserve.’

- Andy Cosby

“Prepare for udder disaster.”

Pitch:

At approximately 9 p.m. on Sunday, October 8, 1871, a cow accidentally kicked over a lantern in Mrs. O’Leary’s barn, starting the Great Chicago Fire.  Hundreds were killed in the ensuing inferno.  Now, more than a century later, it’s time to make amends.  As biblical Armageddon descends upon mankind, a Midwestern farm boy finds he may hold the key to our salvation and must embark on a perilous journey that will place him right in the middle of the ultimate battle between Heaven and Hell, with only his beloved childhood pet to protect him, a feisty heifer named Bessie… who also happens to be the sole surviving descendent of Mrs. O’Leary’s infamous instigator.

Nick Says: I think we’re due for another A Boy and His Dog. Now, this could be a movie where cow is more of like a companion who shows her mettle when the going gets tough or a full-on Milky Mad Max. It’s a no lose situation, really. And frankly, I think this is the role that will make Cameron Bright a household name. In the Bright household.

Prepare for udder disaster.
