Lately, every time we see something like “…Of The Dead” on the title of a film, we get the urge to skip it, mostly due the huge amount of bad films that just put zombies (or another undead creature) in their plot in order to pull suckers for horror (Me included) and don’t even try to actually deliver an entertaining film. This film called “Bed Of The Dead”, however, actually tries (successfully in my opinion) to bring something different to the horror and suspense genres without falling into cliches or turning into another lazy pretentious flick. Those who are attending to Fantasia 2016 (Currently running at Montreal, Canada to August 3rd) had the chance to see it, and here our brief review without spoilers:
In “Bed Of The Dead” me meet a group of friends that are celebrating a birthday on a known Sex club, renting the room Number 18, that is said to have a peculiar “Emperor size” bed. After some drinks and unexpected discussions, the young people discover that the bed contained a sinister secret and that if they dare to leave or even climb down from it, they will meet a terrible gruesome death.
At he same time we meet Virgil, a detective with a troubled past that tries to make sense of the events that occurred in the Sex club and the room mentioned before, tracing any similar past incidents with the same fatal consequences. This will put him in a bizarre race against time to save those who still are alive (or not) in room 18.
