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 FIFTEEN:

“This next one is something I actually want to make.  No, really…this one’s not a joke.  I mean, if AMC can do zombies, why not a new spin on the old Count Dracula formula?”

- Andy Cosby (Twitter)

“It’s in the Blood.”

Pitch:

RENFIELD – In this grounded, modern-day reinterpretation of Bram Stoker’s DRACULA, brilliant and clinically insane R. M Renfield, convicted of killing his own family, joins forces with the FBI in exchange for certain privileges, including access to his own case file, which he hopes will allow him to reopen the investigation, prove his innocence and somehow track down the person responsible for the deaths of his wife and child.  Demonstrating a unique penchant for solving crimes, Renfield teams with seasoned FBI Special Agent Mina Harker to investigate a string of brutal slayings in which the bodies are found ritualistically murdered.  Harker and Renfield have a history, as she was the one who brought him down years ago in a high profile investigation that launched her career as the bureau’s leading profiler.  Renfield proving his innocence could be Harker’s undoing,but it would be well worth it to track America’s most prolific multiple murderer, a mysterious and elusive psychopath who’s convinced that vampires are real and has been stalking and staking his victims, burning their remains.  As they work together to capture this mad man, Harker and Renfield will eventually come face-to-face with the killer, only to be confronted by the horrifying realization that there may be more truth to the killer’s claims than either of them are willing to admit.  Which means the real evil is still out there… and the hunters may have just become the hunted.
