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-SEVEN:

“Ever since Hitchcock’s masterpiece, PSYCHO, I’ve been enamored with and horrified by the idea that the most ordinary, unassuming people are often the one’s with the deepest, darkest secrets. I just love this notion that no one really knows anybody, at least not completely, and sometimes there’s things we just don’t want to know.”

- Andy Cosby (Twitter)

“It’s always a Dead End.”

Pitch:

Every summer, the Walkers, a prototypically average American family, pack up their Winnebago and embark on a two-week road trip across the United States.  But this year things take an unexpected turn when Mrs.Walker stumbles onto Mr. Walker butchering a hitchhiker in the reststop bathroom.  As it turns out, her husband is actually one of the world’s most prolific serial killers and has been using their annual vacation as his personal hunting season.  Now, sadly, his own family just became fair game.

Nick Says: Maxwell Caulfield is going to open some eyes here. The complexity of performance, the charisma, and the sly winking nods towards his amazing back catalog of work makes him a dark horse for a Rue Morgue award of some sort. These kind of movies are always fun, especially if they do capture that numbness associated with the most bland and innocuous people suddenly being capable of horrific things.
