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 FIFTY-FOUR:

“I really enjoyed the movie this next one is (loosely) based on, but I couldn’t help going in the exact opposite direction of Oscar contention by mashing it up with the classic low-budget horror movie, CHILDREN OF THE DAMNED. Nothing says cheesy better than evil kids and alien infestation.”

- Andy Cosby (Twitter)

“Sugar and spice and something not nice.”

Pitch:

Set against the backdrop of a quaint little town nestled high in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest, a group of children embark on afield trip to their local observatory, where they witness a startling astrological event — the discovery of an unidentified comet. One-by-one, the kids marvel at the comet’s passing, each getting a turn looking through the observatory’s powerful telescope, not even remotely aware that in doing so they are being invaded by a bizarre extraterrestrial species that enters through the ocular nerve.  The kids return from the field trip inexorably changed, and immediately begin their plans for world domination.  Before long, the adult populace finds itself under attack, outwitted and outmatched by their own offspring, until only a handful of survivors remain, including a feisty female trucker, the Sheriff and his daughter, who was too sick to attend the field trip with her classmate.  Together, they are humanity’s last, best defense against the adolescent alien onslaught.

Nick Says: This would explain an awful lot.
