From Breakthrough Entertainment and Black Fawn Films – the team behind the breakaway indie-hits Antisocial, The Drownsman, and BITE – comes BED OF THE DEAD, directed by Jeff Maher (Cinematographer of Antisocial, BITE, Let Her Out).

Two young couples out for a night of debauchery at the city’s oldest sex club find themselves stuck on a haunted antique bed where leaving means suffering a gruesome fate. Plagued with frightening hallucinations, they must figure out the bed’s secrets before they are picked off one by one. But when they call the police for help they are connected with a hard nosed detective who at that very moment is investigating the death of four young people at the same sex club in the same antique bed!

Channelling horror films of the 1970’s and 80’s, BED OF THE DEAD will have its World Premiere at the Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal July 16th at 11:55pm at J.A. De Seve Theatre, with an additional screening August 1st at 5:00pm, again at J.A. De Seve Theatre.

“I’m thrilled to be premiering my first feature film at such an amazing festival back in my home town,” says Director Maher.

Bed of the Dead is directed by Jeff Maher, written by Cody Calahan and Maher, and starring Colin Price (Late Night Double Feature), Alyssa King (TV’s Slasher, Berkshire County) Gwenlyn Cumyn (TV’s All For One), Dennis Andres (Lady Psycho Killer) and George Krissa.
