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 THIRTY:

“Nothing like a little Lovecraft to start the morning right.  How do you like your coffee… one tentacle or two?”

- Andy Cosby

“Shop ‘til you drop.”

Pitch:

When a bunch of Goth kids get their hands on a real copy of the Necronomicon, they recite one of the arcane rituals and inadvertently open a gateway to another dimension, unleashing hordes of Lovecraftian monstrosities upon the unsuspecting populace.  As the city is overtaken by these extra-dimensional invaders, a small group of survivors take refuge in a secluded shopping mall, where they arm themselves and prepare to make humanity’s last stand against the creatures from the great beyond.  Meanwhile, the sole remaining Goth makes his way to the mall, still in possession of the mystical tome that started all of this, which may now be the only means of closing the portal and saving what’s left of mankind.

Nick Says: I hope the kids lose. Hard.
