Deathbed (2002) from Tuna
Deathbed (2002 video), or "Death Bed", if I believe the box, is not a
bad horror film.
|A young couple rents the upper floor of a converted
warehouse. She discovers a metal frame bed in a locked room, and the two
of them start having odd nightmares and hallucinations. Seems the room
was the scene of several unsolved murders, and the ghosts are pissed,
and bent on revenge. I will stop there on the plot, as many of you might
want to rent this one.
Tanya Dempsey as the wife shows
great buns wearing a thong, and a down-shirt that shows a
nipple. Meagan Mangum as the ghost has lovely breast exposure
during one of the hallucinations.
DVD info from Amazon.
widescreen anamorphic 1.85:1,
surprisingly, it comes with a
pretty good DVD for a minor film
- it even includes another full-length film, 1995's Castle Freak
It gets a little muddled near the end, but it held my interest, and
the ending came as a surprise. The gore was very light for a horror
I agree. It isn't bad. It has a creepy
atmosphere, and isn't a bad ghost story for a low budget film. It relies
more on mystery and psychology than special effects.
guideline: 7.5 usually indicates a level of
excellence, about like three and a half stars
from the critics. 6.0 usually indicates lukewarm
watchability, about like two and a half stars
from the critics. The fives are generally not
worthwhile unless they are really your kind of
material, about like two stars from the critics.
Films under five are generally awful even if you
like that kind of film, equivalent to about one
and a half stars from the critics or less,
depending on just how far below five the rating
guideline: A means the movie is so good it
will appeal to you even if you hate the genre. B means the movie is not
good enough to win you over if you hate the
genre, but is good enough to do so if you have an
open mind about this type of film. C means it will only
appeal to genre addicts, and has no crossover
appeal. D means you'll hate it even if you
like the genre. E means that you'll hate it even if
you love the genre. F means that the film is not only
unappealing across-the-board, but technically
inept as well.
Based on this description,
from a C (Scoop) to C+ (Tuna). Not a bad genre
film at all. Don't run out and rent it, but if it comes on,
leave it on.
