-->--WebVideo/TheCinemaSnob reviewing [[http://www.thecinemasnob.com/50/post/2010/01/death-bed-the-bed-that-eats.html the movie]]

In 1972, some guy named George Barry got a camera and some film.

What happened was ''Death Bed: The Bed That Eats''.

An incredibly cheesy and bizarre mix of horror, sexploitation, and arthouse, Death Bed was shot in 1972 but a print wasn't struck until 1977. It then disappeared. before being rediscovered in 2003 and released on DVD, it gained a cult following when bootlegs made from a rare UK VHS/Betamax copy of the film began circulating. Director George Barry reportedly forgot about the film before he came across said bootleg found on a horror movie forum.
!! ''Death Bed: The Bed That Eats'' contains examples of:

* AttackOfTheKillerWhatever
* BMovie
* BizarreAlienBiology: There are [[{{Padding}} plenty of scenes]] of the bed's ''digestive system'', just for starters.
* DullSurprise: UpToEleven; probably the worst offender among the films on TVTropes, since ''pretty much the whole cast'' acts like this all the time. Say, one of the guys loses the skin on his hands, and the remaining bones begin falling apart, but he doesn't seem to mind at all. The most jarring scenes [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BMkxVmLHIMk are even put on Youtube]].
* EverybodyHasLotsOfSex: Well, it is about a bed... [[spoiler: too bad most of them get eaten by the time they're done.]]
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: Three guesses to what the antagonist does.
* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: Again, when the guy loses his hands.
* OurDemonsAreDifferent: [[spoiler: They sleep only every ten years, their eyes are always full of blood, and their tears can bestow sentience on inanimate objects.]]
* OurMonstersAreWeird: Doesn't quite cover it...
* SpiritualSequel: Creator/PattonOswalt's [[JustForFun upcoming masterpiece]] ''Rape Stove.''
* SpookyPainting: Some guy (implied to be the famous Art Nouveau painter Aubrey Beardsley) is holed up behind a painting. We get to hear his discussions with the bed. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny The bed doesn't talk back.]]
* SurrealHorror: Sort of. To be fair, it is about a demon-possessed bed eating people.
* StealthParody: Some have suggested this, due to the absurd plot of the movie.
* TearsOfBlood: How baby Death Beds are born.
