You know what I would do if I found something under my bed? I’d run. Away. And never come back. But hey, that’s just me, I’m kinda chicken that way. The kids of Steven C. Miller’s “Under the Bed”, on the other hand, well, they decide to tackle that bastard head-on. Brave kids, these. I wouldn’t want to be them, though. Things that live under the bed are usually, you know, pretty creepy. I don’t do creepy. Especially under my bed.
Anyhoo. Check out a Red Band trailer for “Under the Bed”, which you can read our review for it here back when it was playing the festival circuits.
Synopsis: Every child knows about the monster under the bed—Neal Hausman’s mistake was trying to fight it. Neal has returned from a two-year exile following his tragic attempt to defeat the monster, only to find his father ticking ever closer to a breakdown, a new stepmother who fears him, and his little brother Paul, terrorized by the same monster. While Neal and Paul work together to try and fight the nocturnal menace, their parents are taking desperate measures to get the family back to normal. With no support from their parents, the brothers have nothing to rely on but each other, and courage beyond belief.
Starring Jonny Weston, Gattlin Griffith, Musetta Vander, Peter Holden and Kelcie Stranahan.
