TORONTO, CANADA – Hot off its sold out world premiere at this year’s Fantasia Film Festival, United Front Entertainment and Black Fawn Distribution have acquired the Canadian digital and home entertainment rights for Breakthrough Entertainment and Black Fawn Films’ nightmare inducing horror feature Bed of the Dead. From the twisted minds that brought you Bite, Bed of the Dead is directed by Jeff Maher, produced by Black Fawn Films (Bite, Antisocial) and distributed worldwide by Breakthrough Entertainment. Critics are already hailing Bed of the Dead as one of the most outrageous horror releases of 2016.
An exclusive clip from the film can be seen here:
Bed of the Dead tells the tale of four 20-something-year-olds who find themselves stranded on a haunted antique bed where leaving only leads to unbearable suffering and eventual death. Plagued by frightening hallucinations, they must figure out the bed’s secrets before they are ultimately picked off one by one.
The acquisition of Bed of the Dead continues the partnership between United Front Entertainment, Black Fawn Distribution and Breakthrough Entertainment. The three Canadian companies recently agreed to release the upcoming body horror feature Bite later this year with Bed of the Dead to follow.
Bed of the Dead stars Colin Price (Late Night Double Feature), Alyssa King (Berkshire County), Gwenlyn Cumyn (TV’s All for One), Dennis Andrea (Lady Psycho Killer) and George Krissa. The film also features another haunting soundtrack from composer Steph Copeland. Release dates to be announced shortly.
