Trivia

Until its official DVD release in 2003, Death Bed had been circulated via pirated bootlegs and, unknown to director George Barry, the film had gained an underground fan base. Barry said he discovered people discussing it on the internet one evening and decided to put an official video release of the film into works. See more »

Goofs

After Sharon's brother has his hands dissolved by the Death bed, only the skeleton remains. The hands are clearly a plastic skeleton as evidenced by the metal pins connecting the pieces to each other. See more »

In the Bedroom
20 October 2017 | by sol-See all my reviews

Exactly what one would expect from a title like that, 'Death Bed: The Bed That Eats' focuses on a possessed bed at an outskirts cottage that dissolves and eventually consumes anyone unfortunate enough to sit or lie on it for extended periods. Considering the noticeably low budget, the special effects are surprisingly decent and the film comes with the odd artistic touch or two, such as a great shot of one victim's dripping blood extinguishing a candle beside the bed. The film also features a lot of uncanny elements throughout, not all of which necessarily gel well. More bizarre than anything the evil bed does (or anything its victims do to futilely stop themselves being eaten) is the poetic voice-over narration throughout, delivered by one of the bed's victims, trapped behind a painting in the room. His eloquent narration is not necessarily a detractor, but it is certainly very, very weird in a possessed inanimate object movie like this. The film's most significant drawback is the acting with the precredits couple in particular offering amateurish turns. If one can get over the second rate acting, strange voice-over narration and such oddities as the bed being spliced into old newsreel footage (!), this is an undeniably unique horror film, and one that - at the very least - manages to makes its possessed object seem sinister without the need to talk or move.
