Ever think that you could make a flick craptacular enough to light up the Syfy Channel? Starting Friday, they're letting online users collectively create a movie, from concept to the next Dinoshark.

Syfy is partnering with IGN.com to launch B Movie Mogul, which will serve as a clearinghouse of ideas, allowing users to vote on everything from the genre — either 2010 apocalypse flick, Bermuda Triangle monster movie, or Roswell-set alien picture — to costumes, dialogue, and casting. The results will be shot and aired next year as a Syfy original movie.

Crowdsourcing creativity seems like a recipe for disaster. But judging by some of the flicks that end up on Syfy, perhaps disaster's the most popular item on the menu.
