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 ONE-HUNDRED AND EIGHTEEN:

“Feels like the entertainment world could use a little more pulp space adventure.  Are you with me?

- Andy Cosby (Twitter)

“Things are Looking Up.”

Pitch:

SKYJACKERS – Putting a sci-fi twist on Oliver Twist, this post-modern coming of age tale revolves around an orphan boy turned thief who stows away aboard the ships and floating cities inhabiting the upper atmosphere of a huge gaseous planet, where humans and aliens alike live and work, mining the skies for precious particles used to fuel interstellar travel.  While attempting to rob one of these sub-orbital weigh stations, the young thief stumbles across a beautiful damsel in distress and embarks on an adventure that will ultimately lead him to his destiny and the discovery of his true identity as a long lost prince and heir to a galactic empire.

Nick Says: I dig it, especially with Cameron Bright growing up right before our very own eyes. Also, a great movie for Kerry Conran to make on his PC. That said, I long for a movie about an orphan who we grow to love who discovers his true identity at the end, and he’s the worst.
