The plot for Bed of the Dead, a new horror movie scheduled for a 2016 release, seems like the bed itself – untucked. Here’s why…
“Four twentysomethings find themselves stuck on a haunted antique bed where leaving means suffering a gruesome death. Plagued with frightening hallucinations, they must figure out the bed’s secrets before they are ultimately picked off one by one.”
Yeesh – did the idea store go out of business? What about the pillows? Do they harbor dark secrets not related to bed bugs as well? And don’t get me started on the duvets.
Interesting that I Bed The Dead, another movie (and comic book) with a similar title is coming out at the same time. This one, however, is about sex zombies.
But to sack out to where mattress mayhem got its start (not really, but I can’t remember any other examples), try Death Bed: The Bed That Eats, which came out in 1977. That one’s about a demon possessed bed that “consumes lovers.” Talk about putting a bite in your love life. Just remember to not die on the wet spot.
