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 FOURTY-THREE:

“Thanks largely in part to Mr. Tom Hanks and that damned MAZES AND MONSTERS movie, when I was a kid, my friends were forced to hide our Dungeons & Dragons habit from our parents, who collectively referred to it as “The Devil’s Game.” We’d come up with all sorts of clever ways to play without their knowledge. Thankfully, along came a CHIPS episode in which someone on angel dust tries to peel himself like an orange.  After that, mom and dad realized that pretending to be knights and wizards was probably better than the other types of trouble we could be getting into. Of course, they never let us use the orange peeler again.”

“Playtime is OVER!”

Pitch:

When one of their own dies unexpectedly, a gaming group has difficulty continuing their favorite pastime. Unable to cope with the loss, one of the members decides to incorporate a Ouija board into their weekly tabletop RPG, thus communicating with their dead friend and continuing the ongoing campaign. It’s weird at first, but the group quickly grows accustomed to having a ghostly gamer in their midst. To their horror, however, the imaginary events of their game begin to have real world consequences, ultimately revealing that the spirit at their table isn’t their old friend after all, but rather a demonic entity that’s decided to play by its own twisted set of rules. And its game is only just beginning…

Nick Says: Amazing. This is actually better than so many theatrical efforts and I have no doubt it’ll change the way we look at Cameron Bright as a performer.
