"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 SEVENTY-TWO:

“I’m not sure how many different Tim Burton movies went into the blender on this one, but I’m guessing at least three.”

- Andy Cosby (Twitter)

“The First Cut is the Deepest”

HELL RAZOR: Obsessed with Stephen Sondheim’s hit Broadway musical, Sweeney Todd, a disturbed young man becomes convinced the straight razor that once belonged to his abusive father is actually possessed by a demonic entity. Driven to more and more extreme acts of rebellion and violence by this “Hell Razor,” the young man literally lashes out at those he considers his tormentors and ultimately kidnaps a female classmate whose beauty and femininity he secretly covets, believing that her blood can somehow transform him into the woman he was always meant to be.

Nick Says: That premise is about 120 proof. I'm a little tipsy from reading it and know it exists.
