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 NINETEEN:

“True Story:  The 1980 film version of Flash Gordon was my first introduction to the audience participation survey.  I was just a little kid, and no one had ever asked me for my opinion on a movie before, so I was all too happy to fill out their little questionnaire card, giving top scores to what I considered at the time to be a fine piece of sci-fi pulp awesomeness.  Even back then, I knew a really good bad movie when I saw one.  I mean, that theme song alone was worth the price of admission.  Of course, my dad and older brother didn’t share my youthful enthusiasm and refused to let me choose another movie for at least three months.

- Andy Cosby

“He’ll slay every one of us!

Pitch:

Following yet another rousing space adventure, pulp hero Rex Gordon rescues the princess, destroys the dreaded battle-star and saves the universe once more.  Unfortunately, on the voyage home to get some well deserved rest and relaxation, Gordon develops a bad case of space madness and begins stalking and killing everyone else aboard his spaceship.

Nick Says: There is no such thing as a bad case of space madness. This will be the role that defines how future generations look upon the talent that is Sir William Zane.
