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 TWENTY-TWO:

“Given what’s happening in the world of politics these days, I thoughtit only fitting to add my voice to the huddled masses with anon-partisan horror piece that’s designed to please everyone… or noone… I’m not quite sure which yet.

- Andy Cosby

“Hell to the Chief.

Pitch:

When the President becomes possessed by an ancient Babylonian demon, evil quickly spreads through the White House, infecting everyone in its path and prompting an emergency lockdown.  Surrounded by the forces of darkness, the last remaining Secret Service Agent teams with a visiting priest and a feisty female tour guide as they fight their way through hordes of undead staffers in an attempt to reach the Oval Office and exorcise the demonic presence before it can launch America’s nuclear arsenal, thus sparking World War III and the beginning of biblical Armageddon.

Nick Says: I was working with Stuart Gordon on House of Re-Animator for a stretch, and his tale of a zombie president (to be played by William H. Macy) would have been amazing if it’d been able to get made during the Bush years. Unfortunately it didn’t happen for a variety of reasons. But the concept is great, and Cosby’s on to something. I look forward to seeing how good a job Austin Pendleton does as the President in this one. It’s a role he was born to play.
