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 FOURTEEN:

“Okay, enough of the esoteric stuff.  Back to basics with more animals gone wild.

- Andy Cosby

“Never monkey around with science.

Pitch:

Another top-secret super solider project goes belly up, producing negative results, save for one promising exception: APE X.  In a misguided attempt to create the ultimate superhuman, they got a super-monkey instead, with powers and abilities far beyond a simple simian.  The only problem is, these extraordinarily potent and unpredictable abilities now belong to an emotionally unstable ape, one that ultimately escapes captivity, brutally slays the scientists that created it and goes on a killer rampage through the streets of Washington, D.C.  Look, up in the sky… it’s a bird… it’s a plane… it’s OH MY GO-AAAUUURRGHHH!!!!

Nick Says: I love it. It’d be amazing if you set up this relationship with a beautiful woman and you get attached to the possibility of this creature protecting her at all costs. Tiny Kong. Then, the hero shows up and the ape is picking his teeth with her shattered femur and her body is in 11,000 pieces on the floor, wet and defeated. It was beast that killed the beauty!
