Four twenty somethings find themselves stuck on a haunted antique bed where leaving means suffering a gruesome death. Plagued with frightening hallucinations, they must figure out the bed’s secrets before they are ultimately picked off one by one.
The Bed of the Dead trailer opens with a dramatic scene of mysterious hooded figures carrying an unconscious person. We see the feet of someone hanging with blood dripping. Could this be the unconscious person they were carrying?
The hooded gang walks off, and we see another mysterious person wearing chains and holding an ax. He starts chopping at a tree. A sequence of startling images of the man crafting something from the wood. Looks like a symbol of some sort. We see that very symbol engraved on a door.
This opens up a new scene with creepy music. Sounds like a dark lullaby. Police officers, investigators, and forensic scientists are at the scene of what looks like a very gruesome crime.
A group of young adults checks into a room. The same room with that engraved symbol. Mysterious, unexplainable events happen. The sole cause looks to be the symbol. Interlocking scenes of other crimes that have taken place.
The words “You Made Your Bed, Now Die In It” flashes on the screen. More interlocking scenes of intense unexplainable events. The trailer ends with “Bed of the Dead”, followed by another intense, startling scene.
Bed of the Dead looks like another chilling supernatural story. However, the synopsis is quite interesting. A group of young adults checks into a room that is haunted and the main source looks to be the creepy symbol that was crafted from the tree.
I assume it’s the same tree the unconscious woman was hung from. That must mean the room with the engraved symbol is in, is haunted by the spirit of the young woman. What’s interesting is that it’s not the room that haunted, it’s the bed itself, on which the symbol was engraved.
Being that the group of young adults was given that room, in particular, must mean that they had something to do with the death of the young woman. Could they have been the hooded figures that were carrying the young woman’s body and hanging her to the tree?
The Bed of the Dead trailer already draws a number of questions that are not answered by the trailer alone. Of course, this is a good thing. A trailer that reveals too much makes it pointless to see the actual movie.
Bed of the Dead looks to be filled with a lot of suspense, mystery, and dark secrets that will unveil a chilling demise. Seeing there is a lot of action in the trailer, gives me a good feeling that the film will keep you on your toes and not wander into boredom.
Bed of the Dead releases it’s world premier on July 16, 2016, at Fantasia in Montreal, Canada.
