“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-SEVEN:
“Death Race 2000 and Escape From New York are two of my all-time favorite low-budget/high-concept movies. There’s just something cool about convicts forced to fight one another in a controlled environment.”
- Andy Cosby (Twitter)
“Winning is Everything.”
CON GAMES – In the future, hardened criminals are given the opportunity to participate in semi-lethal spectator sports. Imagine football with weapons and an explosive cowhide. Think Nascar with guns. Lethal Olympics. Wardens trade convicts the way team owners trade players. Kids collect convict cards. The best lawyers don’t get you off, they get you a better contract. Criminals are celebrities. Lifers get multi-million dollar endorsements. And set again the backdrop of this branded new world, our hero, a former pro athlete, is framed by a corrupt prison system just to get him into the biggest game of the year. But things take an unexpected turn when he and his teammates make their escape, armed with the latest in lethal sports equipment.
Nick Says: I love the enthusiasm you write these with. These are REAL MOVIES in your head, which is great. Let’s face it, this is a terrific leading role for Rich Rossovich.
