Those of you who didn’t like our vicious, shaky-cam V/H/S films should turn their attention to the smooth stylings of Steven C. Miller’s Under the Bed, a slow-burn horror that taps into children’s genre films from the ’80s.
Opening July 19 from XLRator Media, “Every child knows about the monster under the bed—Neal Hausman’s mistake was trying to fight it. Neal (Jonny Weston, Chasing Mavericks) 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 (Gattlin Griffith, Green Lantern, Changeling), 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.”
The art has been released, with a trailer coming shortly!
Jonny Weston, Gattlin Griffith, Peter Holden, Musetta Vander and Kelcie Stranahan star.
