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 EIGHTY-FIVE:

“Mobsters and monsters — two great tastes that taste great together!”

- Andy Cosby (Twitter)

“They’re Trying Real Hard to be the Shepherds.”

Pitch:

Having sold his soul to some dark elder god in exchange for worldly wealth and power, a crime boss suffering from terminal cancer realizes his days are numbered and sends his two best thugs to retrieve a rare antiquity that could provide the only means of returning his lost soul and avoiding eternal damnation.  Delving into a dark and mysterious underworld of supernatural crime and corruption, the hired goons soon find themselves out of their depth and up against all manner of paranormal weirdness as they struggle to fulfill their boss’ dying request.  But can they retrieve the item before the proverbial devil comes to claim his due?  And what will happen when they realize their boss has set them up to take the fall?

Nick Says: What a great flick to pair Nicky Katt and Mos Def together in. And as the boss, what a perfect career send-off for Danny Aiello. This has the potential to change lives.
