“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 FIFTY-EIGHT:
“What can I say? I have a great fondness for Universal Monsters and muscle cars.”

“Start your engines!”
CRANKENSTEIN: What happens when you blend a junkyard mechanical maestro with the mad genius of the world’s most notorious Victorian inventor? The answer is Crankenstein! — half-man, half-machine and built for speed, a gross amalgamation of flesh and fenders created by a redneck renaissance man who’s death literally breathes life into his latest, greatest invention. Discovered by the dead mechanic’s daughter, who inherits the family business and eventually finds the bizarre contraption buried beneath a pile of scrap, Crankenstein is reborn. Working together, the girl and the muscle car monstrosity struggle to protect their father’s legacy from Universal Motors, a corrupt car manufacturer willing will stop at nothing to uncover Crankenstein’s secret… and bury it for good this time.
Nick Says: Great. It’s what Death Race should have been. And what a great role for Mikey Ironside.
