"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 TWO HUNDRED AND FORTY-NINE:

“When I was a kid, as I would begin to drift off at night, I would occasionally hear my own heartbeat thrumming against my pillow, which I became convinced was the sound of Count Chocula sneaking up the stairs to murder me in my sleep.  After all, why else would a bloodsucking creature of the night try to convince the entire world he was nothing more than a beloved breakfast cereal character?  The answer was obvious... so he could get close to the children. True story.”

- Andy Cosby (Twitter)

“Slay Me Down to Sleep.”

PILLOW TALK: Following in the footsteps of classic Japanese ghost movies like The Ring and The Grudge, this tale of non-corporeal terror follows an America businessman recently transferred to Japan, who suffers a nervous breakdown after purchasing a dakimakura (body pillow), which he comes to believe is possessed by the spirit of a murdered Japanese woman and whispers to him at all hours of the night, trying to convince him to avenge her death.

Nick Says: Of course Andy Cosby pitched a haunted Japanese pillow movie.
