Exclusive interview with Bed of the Dead director Jeff Maher

Ricky Church chats with Bed of the Dead director Jeff Maher

The upcoming horror film Bed of the Dead features two young couples out for night of debauchery at the city’s oldest sex club find themselves stuck on a haunted antique bed where getting off means suffering a gruesome fate. Upon calling the police they are connected with a skeptical detective who informs them that he is currently investigating the death of four young people at the same sex club in the same antique bed! Plagued with frightening hallucinations, they must figure out the bed’s secrets before they are picked off one by one.

Produced by Black Fawn Films and Breakthrough Entertainment, the movie is something of a throwback to the 70s and 80s era of the horror genre. Jeff Maher, who also wrote the script for the movie, has worked extensively as a cinematographer for several of Black Fawns’ movies,

‘The Drownsman’ DVD Review

Stars: Michelle Mylett, Caroline Korycki, Gemma Bird Matheson, Sydney Kondruss, Clare Bastable, Ry Barrett, JoAnn Nordstrom | Written by Chad Archibald, Cody Calahan | Directed by Chad Archibald

Chad Archibald, producer of Antisocial (a personal fave) turns his hand to directing with a film which is a bold attempt to create an all-new horror villain in The Drownsman. And hey, what’s not to like about another horror film starring the wonderful Michelle Mylett?

This time round Mylett plays Madison who, after almost drowning in a lake, develops debilitating hydrophobia and with good reason. It’s not just water the frightens Madison, it’s the supernatural entity that continually haunts her through it, a rancid ghostly entity trying to pull her into his dark, wet world. Her friends, worried for her sanity, decide to stage an intervention – with dire consequences. Their attempts to help their friend only unleash the drownsman’s rage

Grimmfest 2015: ‘Antisocial 2′ Review

Stars: Michelle Mylett, Stephen Bogaert, Josette Halpert, Samuel Faraci, Jake Michaels, Kassandra Santos, Kristina Nicoll | Written by Chad Archibald, Cody Calahan, Jeff Maher | Directed by Cody Calahan

Years after having her newborn child stolen from her, Sam searches a world infested with infected users from the Social Redroom website. After befriending a young girl named Bean, Sam is captured and locked in a facility dedicated to finding a cure for the Redroom virus. Trapped and tortured, Sam tries to escape the facility before an impending update on the Redroom site hits 100% and unleashed its final phase of attack…

Despite the open(ish) ending of the first Antisocial, when this sequel was announced I did wonder in just what direction Chad Archibald, Cody Calahan and the Black Fawn Films crew would take the film. After all, the original film was a one location, claustrophic horror flick that – I thought – had a finite story.
