“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 TWENTY-EIGHT:
“Always wanted to do a Steampunk version of Ghostbusters.”

“Ghostbusting by Gaslight.”
GHASTBUSTERS – The story opens on turn of the century New York City – the last century, that is. It’s 1899, and a bizarre string of disappearances has police in the Big Apple completely baffled. A retired Scotland Yard detective who specializes in debunking false spiritualists is called in to investigate the mysterious circumstances surrounding the murders. Forced to team with an eccentric “paraphysicist” and his dutiful daughter, the doubting detective soon finds he’s up against something truly supernatural and must set aside his skepticism if he hopes to defeat a very real and very ancient evil threatening to destroy mankind.
