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 NINETY-EIGHT:

I’m feeling a little under the weather today, which of course calls for a good solid killer virus movie.

- Andy Cosby (Twitter)

“Transient. Transmitting.”

Pitch:

STAFF INFECTION – While dumpster diving in the alley behind a government subsidized pharmaceutical company, a homeless man is bitten by an escaped lab rat carrying a weaponized form of influenza that eventually turns those infected into paranoid killing machines.  Seeking aid at the local free clinic, the homeless man suddenly attacks one of the nurses, infecting her with the disease, which then quickly spreads to other members of the staff.  Realizing they’re dealing with a viral outbreak that could easily wipe out huge portions of the population, a young doctor joins forces with a handful of others to seal off the clinic while they arm themselves and attempt to deal with the problem from within.

Nick Says: God damn I cannot wait to see what Marshall Bell does with the role. I love when homeless people cause great discord!
