“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 SIXTY-SEVEN:
“This next one is in homage to two sci-fi classics. One of them is LOGAN’S RUN. You’ll have to read between the lines a bit to recognize the influence. But the other, SOYLENT GREEN, should be readily apparent. Bon appetit!”

“We are What We Eat.”
In a post-apocalyptic world where food has become the only thing worth living (and dying) for, a young man lucks into a position at BIG BUY, the only remaining supermarket chain, which now rules the ravenous wasteland with an iron-fortified thumb… not to mention a private army of ruthless mercenaries and a few well-placed machine gun nests. Paid in three square meals a day, our stalwart stock boy works diligently, seizing every opportunity to prove himself to his employers — and that cute young checkout girl he’s fallen for from afar — all in a tireless effort to someday be promoted to one of their larger chain stores, where the employment benefits are rumored to be legendary. Unfortunately, he eventually discovers there are no other stores, which leads to the even more horrifying realization that the main ingredient in Big Buy’s coveted canned goods is actually just recycled employees. And guess who’s up for the big promotion….
Nick Says: I think it’s about time someone pitched ‘Die Hard in an Eating Raoul’…
