365 Days of Sci-Fi, Movie NewsComment

"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 NINETY-TWO:

“Despite a recent and ongoing glut of zombie movies, novels, comics, TV shows, you name it, the whole walking dead phenomenon continues to enthrall me -- which mean I will continue to bore you with an endless number of undead movie pitches.”

- Andy Cosby (Twitter)

“Are we dead yet?”

DAY OF THE DAD: A family camping trip turns ugly when Dad comes back from collecting firewood bitten by a rabid raccoon, then washes the wound in the local river, which just happens to be downstream from an abandoned chemical plant.  The calamitous combination of elements results is a nasty infection that transforms dear old daddy into a flesh-starved zombie. Forced to flee into the woods, mom and the kids must use all the survival skills he taught them over the years to make it back to civilization with life and limbs intact. Unfortunately, when they finally emerge from the forest, they’re horrified to discover that the“walking dad” got there first.  The infection is already starting to spread, and their fight for survival has only just begun.

Nick Says: This is sort of adorable. It'll be gold if you can wrangle good ol' Tom Berenger into the lead role.
