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 EIGHTEEN:

“Fair warning: stick with this column long enough, and you’re bound to see a lot of Bigfoot related concepts and references.  I’ve had a longstanding love/hate relationship with the creature ever since I first saw Patterson’s Willow Creek footage as a kid.  That shit really fucked with my head.  I still won’t go camping.  Even tried watching The Legend of Boggy Creek again recently, but couldn’t finish it…and it’s Rated G for crying out loud!  It’s a serious problem.  Over the years, I’ve tried different methods of dealing with my phobia. I’ve dressed up as the Bionic Bigfoot from the Six Million Dollar Man series for Halloween, purchased all sorts of Bigfoot related toys and memorabilia, written stories about him… I even shot a series of Eureka webisodes featuring the hairy bastard.  Nothing works.  So, I figured I’d just embrace it and use it as inspiration.  If there are others out there who share my unnatural fear, please speak up.  It’d be nice to know I’m not alone.

“Size does matter.

Pitch:

Deep in the heart of the Pacific Northwest, a group of hikers stumble upon a set of large footprints, leading them to the decimated carcass of the legendary Bigfoot… along with a set of much larger footprints trailing away from the carnage.  Heading back to town to report their unprecedented discovery, the hikers soon find themselves stalked by a new breed of Sasquatch, one that’s much larger and more aggressive than its predecessor.  And unfortunately for them, it’s also developed a taste for human blood.

Nick Says: I think we all know this is all a precursor to Biggest Foot, the climactic episode where the legendary Sasquatch bounty hunter played by Brad Johnson discovers that these creatures which have mystified us for so long are in actuality King Kong larvae.
