-->--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.
