365 Days of Sci-Fi, Movie News1 Comment

"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-FIVE:

“No preamble today.  At this point, I’m lucky if I find time to spell czech.”

"Stamping out Evil”

DEAD LETTERS: After receiving countless letters to the wrong addressee, Frank Gordon finally decides to open one, only to find a single sheet of paper with a name on it. Later, that name turns out to be a woman who killed her children and buried them in the basement. Intrigued, Frank checks the previous letters -- each one has the name of a different person who committed some heinous act. Upon further investigation, Frank is amazed to discover that each event happened after the date of the letter’s postmark. Who’s sending these letters, and how do they know what’s going to happen? Frank investigates, only to hit one dead end after another. But just when he’s ready to put it all behind him, another letter arrives. This time, the name in the letter leads him to a terrorist who’s building a dirty bomb in his apartment.  Looks like Frank has a new job, stopping evil before it can happen.  All he has to do is wait for the next letter.  But what happens when one arrives with his name on it?

Nick Says: This is remarkably strong and with potential. As a result, it'd be wasted on a shoddy channel. Imagine what Gabriel Macht could do with this role.
