365 days of Sci-Fi (Archive)

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 THIRTEEN:

“Had this weird dream last night where I reached into the fridge for a carton of milk and took a big swig, realizing too late that it was way past its expiration date.  I spit the milk out and looked down at the carton, only to find a picture of the Earth where the missing kid photo would normally be.  Now, a sane person would simply deduce that this is my subconscious telling me to pay more attention to the myriad of environmental issues plaguing our world.  Instead, I used it as inspiration for this….

- Andy Cosby

It’s the end of the world as we know it.  And they feel fine.

Pitch:

Well, it’s that time, the Apocalypse has finally arrived, and the Four Horsemen have been unleashed upon the earth to wreak havoc and carryout God’s prophesied plan.  There’s just one problem…  They like it here and don’t want to see it all destroyed.  The weather’s nice, the people are friendly, there’s loads to do, and the internet reception is way better than back home.  So, instead of wasting the planet like they were supposed to, they decide to protect it, using their God given talents (literally) to become the most bizarre superhero team ever assembled.  Meanwhile, the Big Guy is nowhere to be found, so heaven and hell are in utter turmoil, with mankind caught in the middle, no one quite sure what to do when the Lord’s plan doesn’t go off without a hitch.

Nick Says: I can buy into this, especially with Bokeem Woodbine as Famine.
