Death Bed: The Bed That Eats is one of those forgotten pieces of cinematic history that almost never saw the light of day. A product of passion by a director named George Barry who grew up in the same neighborhood as Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi. When you hear his story, it’s easy to see the comparisons. Both Michigan based filmmakers were fans of classic horror films and inspired to make their own low budget scary opus. Raimi and company crafted The Evil Dead which became a cult classic allowing them to continue making movies and build a fervent fan base. Barry made Death Bed, which sat unreleased for decades and was almost completely lost to history.
Patton Oswalt has the most iconic take on the movie, which he discusses extensively on his album “Werewolves »
