There is nothing else like this, for better or for worse. It was a fun time!! As is appropriate for a film about a bed, Death Bed offers up a dreamlike atmosphere, one that is often enhanced by its low budget. We appreciated the movie for what it attempted and we enjoyed the crunching and munching Mr. But it was with a satiric eye opened that we were kept entertained and we understood the cult epic that was unfolding in line with Eraserhead and Pink Flamingos. A less budget restricted remake would be nice, but try to take it for what it is.
This film is a sublime gem. Three pretty girls on vacation, searching for a place to spend the night. Granted, its acting is all on the amateurish side, but the low low budget does work in its favour, as such an element often does for such B pictures. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies,. Here goes: a demon falls in love with a girl, but she perishes and his sadness infects a bed which then becomes indestructible and develops an insatiable appetite for for pretty much everything, flesh in particular. In the end, there really is no proper way to describe this movie. In the room there lies a bed.
The conclusion of the film works very well and does an admirable job of tying together all of the movies most important plot-points and visual ques. Most likely taking offense to the boyfriend's clumsily amateur breast-fondling technique, the bed spitefully eats the young couple's lunch. It doesn't walk, it doesn't move, it doesn't have a siren call to attract people. Our narrating spirit gives us a little history about the bed, its loud munching sounds, and its generally dim wit. With the right breaks, George Barry could have had the kind of career in North America that had in Europe; Death Bed has the same Eurotrashy sensibility, focusing on languid moods, undressed girls, and unexplained occurrences chosen for their poetry rather than their utility. Sadly, the acting in this movie is very mediocre. As a matter of fact, i suspect their are only going to be a handful of us who truly enjoy this movie.
On the matter of blood and guts, a light spattering of gore effects is used which provides the film with the necessary visceral edge, which works well with the films heavy use of sordid visual material. Which I thought was good idea as when they dd speak, it felt forced and makes the bad acting more noticeable. I can see from the point that there are certain inconsistencies in the actions of the bed that make the suspension of belief damn near impossible, but the film itself was such a unique and bizarre concept, that that fact didn't really bother me. It all gets very exhausting. When a demon falls for a human woman and makes love to her on a bed, she is killed and he cries tears of blood onto the bed. First I must say that for having been produced on such a small budget, this sure is quite a capable film - surprisingly so. And in the end we have the explosive final confrontation between Beardsley, Bed's mom you had to be there , and Bed.
A must see for those who claim to have seen a little of everything. These days, after getting hassled time and time again, we don't even do soundclips much anymore!! Too bad, because it could have used it! I put it on late at night with my sister. Death Bed, however, is even stranger; a mix of exploitation tropes, fairy tale poetry, black comedy gags, and arthouse pretensions, with deadpan amateur actors sleepwalking their way through a script that takes as many weird turns as that dyspeptic dream you had when you feel asleep after eating too much fried chicken and drinking too much red wine. Honestly, this is one of the strangest movies I ever saw. The most pretentious way I can phrase it is: this is Samuel Beckett making a haunted house movie. One victim's skull grows bright red flowers not far from the basement housing the bed. I even applauded sat upon my settee a couple of times.
The score sounds like the electronic bits from an old Candlemass album, the acting is terrible and disconnected from everything, the direction is surprisingly competent, and the movie at times feels like a Jesus Franco movie-that is, if his movies were intentionally funny. If you have any legal issues please contact the appropriate media file owners or host sites. When we post a sound clip, it will only stay up 30 days or less! It makes for a lush dreamy quality to this most bizarre film If you buy hehe buy. At the edge of a grand estate, near a crumbling old mansion lies a strange stone building with just a single room. The fact that most dialog is not even spoken by the actors doesn't really help to improve the quality of the movie as a whole. It serves little purpose other than stacking more poor qualities which disrupt the film's pacing. This movie also had flashback of black and white.
When a young man William Russ loses both hands to the ravenous bed, he's oddly not too distraught but more amazed at the damage done. At the edge of a grand estate, near a crumbling old mansion lies a strange stone building with just a single room. No one would be wiling to today, either; even a Kickstarter campaign requires within-the-year results and a ready-made pop-culture fan base for success. Death Bed plays as a dream, one perhaps dreamed inside the film by the ghost, or the demon, or even the bed itself, but certainly dreamed by George Barry. But things get real same-y after awhile. So, sit down, and take a load off, pour yourself a cool one, and order up something hot and greasy, because we have a lot of tasty tidbits on the menu, way outside the realm of good taste! Born of demonic power, the bed seeks the flesh, blood and life essence of unwary travelers… Three pretty girls arrive on vacation, searching for a place to spend the night. This movie gets off to a tasteless start as a couple of young lovers happen upon an old house.
The painter Dave Marsh might just have a method to destroying the death bed but it will include a human sacrifice in order to resurrect the body of the one whose death caused it's hunger in the first place. Discover this neglected marvel of American horror for yourself! So give it a try, and sleep on it. I know, that term is overused, but it couldn't be truer than it is here. One morsel dreams she is being served a hissing cockroach on a bed of worms. Nestled within a ramshackle guesthouse, it lies in wait through the ages. However with that being said, if you don't listen to the narrator, nothing about the movie will make sense.
Death Bed is simply that. Screened in 2013, we could hardly take it seriously. Sometimes beautiful, occasionally amusing but always captivating, this truly is a one off that will stun you with its audacity and leave you open mouthed. Basically every scene in this movie labors on much longer than is necessary, and only to its hysterical detriment. I rented this movie from Netflix on recommendation from my manager.
