Movie Info

Every child knows about the monster under the bed-Neal Hausman's mistake was trying to fight it. Neal (Jonny Weston, Chasing Mavericks) has returned from a two-year exile following his tragic attempt to defeat the monster, only to find his father ticking ever closer to a breakdown, a new stepmother who fears him, and his little brother Paul (Gattlin Griffith, Green Lantern, Changeling), terrorized by the same monster. While Neal and Paul work together to try and fight the nocturnal menace, their parents are taking desperate measures to get the family back to normal. With no support from their parents, the brothers have nothing to rely on but each other, and courage beyond belief.(c) XLRator

Critic Reviews for Under the Bed

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (1)

Matches narrative incoherence with one of the most over-the-top portentous scores in horror-cinema history.

Top Critic

Once, however, the monster comes out of its hiding place and sheds its psychosexual slough, all that remains is a silly, sub-Joe Dante clash between kids and creature, with a dénouement so bewilderingly arbitrary that disappointment is inevitable.

Projected Figures

Kids vs. monsters tale that take a while to warm up, but picks up nicely.

October 17, 2013 | Full Review…

A standard-issue creepshow, undermined by script holes and a meager budget that brings distinctly subpar effects.

One Guy's Opinion

A fun and gory little spooky tale flaws and all.

July 25, 2013 | Full Review…
Cinema Crazed

Unfolds with a nuance and relative level of sophistication that belies its generic title, before eventually succumbing to a haphazard, poorly explained explosion of gore.

Audience Reviews for Under the Bed

Was this ever bad... The acting and dialogue are beyond atrocious, it made me cringe everytime these actors opened their mouth. I actually felt embarassed for them. Wouldn't be a problem if the movie wasn't such a drag that doesn't go anywhere, featuring a bland monster that feeds on dead tissue (???), hides under a bed and also behind a shit ton of plot holes and inconsistencies that make little sense in the end. There's some solid deaths in the end but the set up is so stupid they become quickly laughable. "RUUUUUUUUUUUUNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!" - dad with male boobs so so bad...
