DEATH BED: THE BED THAT EATS

George Barry, USA, 1977, Cult Epics

“Just when you thought you'd seen it all -- murderous houseplants, elevators, computers, even tomatoes -- along comes DEATH BED. Immortalized by comedian Patton Oswalt in one of his evocative on-stage comedic rants, this highly amusing bit of gothic surrealism takes place primarily within a stone crypt, where the only remaining piece of a demonic house sits in waiting for horny young thrillseekers to stumble upon it before digesting them whole.

Though most obviously “horror” (with nods to familiar trappings like ghosts and flesh-eating), DEATH BED also fits snugly within Seventies outré experimental conventions. Never really released after its lengthy post-production, DEATH BED languished in the vaults after American distribution plans went belly up and a possible British distributor took off with a pirated copy. Fortunately for horror fans,DEATH BED has finally emerged from his resting place to gurgle its way into your black, black heart.” (Nathaniel Thompson, Mondo Digital)
