“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 SEVENTY-TWO:
“They say a picture’s worth a thousand words, but I like to think tha tall depends on the words. The right one can move mountains. And so can the wrong one.”
- Andy Cosby (Twitter)
“Write is wrong”
Following a string of rejection letters for his latest horror opus, an emotionally disturbed author decides to end it all and heads to his local pawnshop to purchase the necessary handgun. Upon learning there’s a 30-day waiting list, the frustrated novelist turns to go in search of the nearest bridge, only to stumble upon a used typewriter that once belonged to his favorite author, who ironically killed himself before finishing his last novel. Seeing this as an omen, the writer decides to purchase the typewriter and take one last stab at a rewrite, only to discover that the events he types are actually coming true. Consequently, he begins a new book, creating the perfect life for himself as the protagonist, while reaping literary vengeance against all those who have wronged him. Only his editor knows the terrifying truth and must embark on a campaign to stop the writer before his new non-fiction novel reaches its devastating and inevitable conclusion.
