A bed is possessed by the spirit of a demon and eats anyone that uses it.

 

I expected more. The description made it sound like it would be one of those b movies that are so stupid they’re funny. And sure, there were a couple parts that were funny. But for the most part, it was just stupid.

It was an interesting enough idea though. Had it been made today, I probably would have liked it better. But the gore was horrible (like fire engine red paint), the guy in the painting was annoying, and the characters seemed extremely stupid. Especially the woman at the very beginning of the movie.

Then there seemed to be a lot of plot holes (unless the boobs are supposed to fill them in). I was left with more questions than answers and it’s horribly annoying. Like the bed seems to have some control about what goes on around it. Why can’t it try to move itself so someone takes it? And what was with the way to defeat it?

 

Maybe I just wasn’t in the mood for it, but I wouldn’t recommend it.
