A surprisingly effective psycho-sexual b-thriller, not without a slight amount of cheese, but coming from Full Moon Pictures, its expected, if not intended. Believable acting from Tanya Dempsey, and Joe Estevez in any role always makes me smile. A nice late-night time waster.
A young couple moves into a chic new studio apartment with a dark past that comes back to haunt them after they bring an old antique bed down out of storage. Anyone that would willingly watch a movie called DEATHBED deserves all they have coming to them. Considering this came from the creators of PUPPET MASTER and THE GINGERDEAD MAN, one is immediately overcome with visions of a giant, toothy mattress munching on people, but instead, the film is played entirely straight as a pseudo-Slasher. Watching DEATHBED is like watching a really long, really boring porno where only the dude gets naked and everyone else leaves, unsatisfied. To say that the acting is stale or to complain about the listless directing is really giving the film more time than it deserves. As opposed to most other Full Moon Features that run around sixty-five minutes, DEATHBED clocks in at an astounding eighty minutes of pure garbage. For a film called DEATHBED, there is also a surprising lack of deaths that occur on or around the bed. It is a wonder that Stuart Gordon would allow his name to be attached to the film at all. Rated 'F' for Partial Nudity, Mild Violence, and False Expectations.

We got this one mixed up with another film - "Death Bed - The Bed That Eats". This film is atrociously bad. But it did make me aware who Joe Estevez is.
Possibly one of the worst films I've ever seen, taking place almost entirely in a single apartment where an old bed starts to drive the new lady of the house nuts.
Any movie where your female lead is driven to sexual frenzy and never shows any skin is the worst type of film-making you could possibly encounter, just because this turkey could have used some skin to break up the monotony.
Cult movie enthusiasts might be tricked into watching this movie because it shares a tittle with another film, Deathbed The Bed That Eats. But don't be fooled, it has next to nothing to do with that film.
While the former is not a fantastic film, it succeeds in being intriguing and you feel like the time watching it was time decently spent. The latter, on the other hand is intriguing only in how many cliches it crams into itself.
My Rating: Ghastly Disappointment

Wow its been a while since Ive seen a film this cheap looking and bad. A pervy photographer who has a fetish for his girlfriend going on top and his girlfriend a prude start renting a flat which happens to be possessed by the worst ghost ever. A serial killer from the 1920s that strangled women on his bed with a necktie, ooooh thats one nasty ghost!
Sensing a dud on his hands the director steps up the tempo and in the last 10 minutes we see the girlfriend bludgeon her boyfriend to death with a hammer.
Too little, too late a big fat turd of a film.
Very cheesy from the beginning. The camera isn't even consistent with moving. Didn't even make it five minutes in and decided maybe it would get better. Nope, it let's off as some porn bed where people get killed. It quickly got turned off and went straight in the trash. What crap!
This is the kind of script that feels like it was written in order to see some naked actors or to have a good "casting couch" Full of lame on screen sex scenes, bad acting and lacking any logic you truly do need to check your brain at the door.
I get a sense that this film was geared directly at the teenage boy crowd as it does have a few moments of decent visual FX mixed in with all that "nudity".
And I use nudity lightly as there is potential for a lot more but for some reason, the filmmakers restrained themselves. Were they afraid of the ratings board? *shrug*
I'd avoid this one unless you're a purist who must see everything Full Moon /Charles Band /Stuart Gordon related.
A subpar horror movie that gets quite creepy at the end.
The twist ending really caught me by surprise
