“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-NINE:
“Because you can never have too many movies about a boy and his giant, man-eating snake.”
- Andy Cosby (Twitter)
“Bessssssst Friends Forever.”
When 10-year-old Monty Montgomery discovers a rare albino python living in his parents’ garden shed, he nurses the sick snake back to health, feeding it leftovers and whatever else he can sneak from the fridge. Meanwhile, the laboratory from which the python escaped desperately searches for the snake, well aware that their missing tes tsubject has been genetically engineered with advanced intellect and lethal cunning. Monty and his python soon become fast friends, and the giant snake continues to grow until it needs more food than mom’s kitchen can provide, so Monty starts kidnapping local pets to sate the python’s enormous appetite. When that runs out, Monty turns to a different food source entirely, starting with the school bully and then moving on to anyone and everyone who’s ever done him wrong.
Nick Says: The Adventures of Young Herbert West must have been taken. I love the idea of this kid one-upping the bullies by getting them to appear in snake stool… I wonder if this is one of those stories that ends in a climactic showdown where the snake jumps (leaps? slithers?) in front of a bullet, saving the kid. Or vice versa? That’s a better one. The snake is saved by the kid and it escapes to go be smart and eat shit for another day.
