3.0 out of 5 stars Well, lets see, it's all about this bed, right...., 6 Nov. 2008
By 
This review is from: Death Bed: Bed That Eats [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
........and, it eats people...and there you go. You know that's not how I do things, Anyway I can't say I liked this movie, but then again, I can't say I didn't like it either. I'm more fascinated by the fact that this movie was made at all. In fact, I'm more fascinated by the fact that they started shooting in 1972 and took 5 years to finish filming. At no point did George Barry decide that this little gem wasn't worth finishing, even though after it didn't get distribution he promptly forgot about it.

You'll come to fine out that a demon falls in lust with a girl, but when she dies from his attentions, he grieves and his blood falls on a bed, turning it into a hungry creature that digests anything placed on it. The bed can make flowers grow out of a skull, lock doors, drag bodies around, make munching sounds and pour pepto-bismol out of a bottle. The bed has a pool of digestive juices with blood that can swallow anything without soiling the sheets and it can bring an artist back as a ghost, paint his fingernails black and imprison him behind a painting. A reasonably good premise, some intelligent and clever moments, good fix for the seven dollar budget, but the AWFUL narration, the gigantic lapses in continuity, the lack of explanation or identification of characters...nonetheless this is one of those pix that was so miserable yet well-intentioned that it was great.

But I sat there revising the film in my head and hoping that Craven or Carpenter or even Roth would see this DVD and decide to re-do it with real money and real actors and a real script. Still, if you love lousy horror movies (and you're in the lousy horror movie section) this is a great way to kill a bag of popcorn with a couple of friends.
