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-SIX:

“Feeling Medieval again today, so I thought I’d mash-up two of my favorite genres… not to mention two of my favorite literary legends – this time with a friendly nod to my pal, Steve Niles.

- Andy Cosby

Eat, drink and be scary.

Pitch:

While questing for the Holy Grail, Sir Percival is tricked into drinking from a tainted chalice and returns to Camelot infected with vampirism, which he then begins to spread to the other Knights of the Round Table.  As the unholy disease sweeps through Camelot, Arthur and Lancelot are forced to set aside their differences and fight side-by-side once more to save their kingdom and rescue the woman they both love before she too falls prey to Percival and his undead legion.

Nick Says: I think it works if Merlin (played here by Charles Dance) is the evil ringleader, maniacally manipulating the Knights of the Round to do his evil bidding. I look forward to a scene late in the film where the heroes are forced to use their wooden practice swords as stakes, back to back and sweating as the horde descends upon them. It’ll be a good opportunity to see if Casper Van Dien has mastered his British accent.
