Another lost horror film seized by Canadian bank.
19 November 2008 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

According to script writer Laird Stuart the production company of "Creature of Comfort" had some financial problems and the film was confiscated by Canadian bank.It was never shown in the cinemas.The story is about a giant amoeba like creature that absorbed people when they used it on their beds as a comforter.It was a series of vignettes that had to do with selfish and mean people.For instance,one section had to do with a nagging wife who is absorbed and disappears,but her husband is unharmed,though he slept in the same bed.Another had to do with a particularly nasty criminal.A third had to do with a viciously aggressive businessman and his poor taken advantaged of mistress.The last had to do with a politician who was not what he purported to be.Each bad person was absorbed by the amoeba.Horror veteran Donald Pleasence played the store owner that sold the comforter.After each absorption,the amoeba somehow returned to the store.It's the highest time to find this horror film,because I'm sure that it deserves to be seen.
