Yes, you’ve seen Death Bed: The Bed That Eats. You may or may not have seen Killer Sofa. Now, there’s The Dwelling, which is also about a haunted piece of furniture. This time, it’s a haunted antique bed. Look out — imagine the nightmares you’d have if the bed you’re about to lie down in was spectrally challenged!
Here’s the description, straight from the PR people: “Four people find themselves stuck on a haunted antique bed where leaving means suffering a gruesome death. Plagued with frightening hallucinations, they must figure out the bed’s secrets before they are ultimately picked off one by one.”
I love how seriously this film starts, with a man being killed in a field and then watching someone turn the tree he was hung on into an ornate bed. Pretty fancy for a film that was once entitled Bed of the Dead.
This is Jeff Maher’s first full-length movie as a director. He’s also written films like Antisocial 2 and been a cinematographer on several other films. It gets into some strange territory, with characters speaking back and forth through time — as long as they are near the bed.
You can check it out for yourself on DVD and on demand from Uncork’d Entertainment.
DISCLAIMER: We were sent this film by its PR team.
