“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 EIGHTY-THREE:
“Once again, it has come to my attention that many of my recent movie concepts might be missing a certain indefinable quality (or lack thereof) that some folks feel is essential to a good bad sci-fi movie pitch. So, in a continuing effort to please my very tiny ought-to-be-committed fan-base… move over SUPER 8, there’s a new creature design in town!”

“Polly Wants a Quaker.”
BEARAKEET: When a train derails containing laboratory specimens belonging to a cutting edge bio-tech company, a dangerous animal hybrid (half-bear/half-parakeet) escapes, seeking refuge in the woods outside the small Quaker community of Pleasant Plain, Iowa. At first, farm animals begin to mysteriously vanish, followed by the local pet population. But once the vicious Bearakeet develops a taste for human flesh, the real trouble begins. One by one, Quaker families disappear, forcing a small group of brave men to venture into the woods in search of the creature responsible – a creature they believe to be sent straight from hell to test their faith in God and in each other.
