Editorial Reviews

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.

I rented this based on viewing The Aggression Scale & Silent Night. Loved those two films and absolutely enjoyed this one! If you are a kid who grew up in the 80s, then this film is pure nostalgia with a modern clean look. Was surprised by the creature effects and design. Everything was really well done. It wasn't particularly scary but I suspect it wasn't suppost to be. It felt more like a brother adventure that dipped into some gruesome horror moments. Lots of fun!

Neal (Jonny Weston) a moody, mumbling high school student has been away living with Aunt Sarah for two years following the fire incident. He is coming home with his less than understanding father (Peter Holden) to reunite with his younger brother Paulie (Gattlin Griffith) and meet his new step mother Angela (Musetta Vander). As the film progresses we find out more about the fire incident and the thing that lives under the bed.

I liked how they did the horror and creep factor in the film. It didn't come at you constantly so you didn't get numb to it. There were a number of things that made me scratch my head.

1) Neal was gone for 2 years. Paulie was 3 when he left. He is clearly well older than 5, more like 10 or 11.
2) Angela experiences an early encounter, then acts like nothing happened.
3) Paulie has been sleeping in the same room as this thing for years which seems absurd.
4) Dad forces them to sleep in the haunted room to prove a point.

I felt like there were some missing scenes. Makes for a good rental. Watch it for the scare and try not to think too much about the plot.

Parental Guide: 4 F-bombs (my count). No sex or nudity.

Format: DVD
What kid hasn’t gone to bed at night thinking there was a monster lurking under his bed or in his closet? Under the Bed expands on that idea but fails to actually run with it. Teenager Neal Hausman has returned home after living out of state with family for two years. Neal was sent away by his father, Terry, after the death of his mother in a fire, which local gossip blames on Neal.

Neal’s reunion is not a happy one. His always angry father is on him constantly to group and be a man, and his new stepmom is trying too hard to get to know him. All Neal cares about is his little brother Paulie. He discovers that Paulie is being tormented by the same evil entity that lived under Neal’s bed, turning his nights into living nightmares. Dad dismisses the boy’s claims of monsters as foolish nonsense, locking them in their room at night. But there is something underneath their bed, something which creeps out and forces the boys to sleep on their dressers at night. They have to destroy the creature before it destroys their family.

Under the Bed is an interesting concept but Director Steven C. Miller and Writer Eric Stolze fail to do much with the idea. Unlike similar films like Darkness Falls or The Boogeyman, Under the Bed fails to develop much of a mythology to capture the viewer’s interest. What is the monster? Where does it come from? Why is it haunting these two particular boys? Those questions are never answered and as such, the film plays like an extended episode of Goosebumps. Furthermore Miller contradicts himself when in one part, Neal says the monster is bound to their beds, but in another, the creature harasses stepmom Angela in the garage laundry room and later shows up at the neighbor’s house when the boys are spending the night.

This film begins with a surly teen (Neil) being driven by his father back home. The conversation they have is vague, but it is clear that a) the boy has been staying with an aunt for a couple years ever since he caused some kind of horrible accident at home, b) his relationship with his father is strained at best, and c) he has a younger brother named "Paulie" that he misses and worries about. He gets home, and as soon as he sees his old house, his eyes widen and his face locks in a sort of sexy-ish version of freaked out (get used to this facial expression), the camera zooms in on him and zooms in on the house and zooms in on him and tilts at a threatening angle and you hear a bunch of brass instruments (tubas and the like) bellow a bombastic "BWAAAAAAAARRRRRMMMMM!" in the soundtrack, letting viewers know that this is scary. This house. Or something.

He has some of the world's most awkward conversations with some of the world's flattest characters, giving them all a hearty dose of barely-strained surliness before he decides to go into the house to see Paulie. He steps up to the entrance to the door. His eyes grow dark and wide and freaked out, the camera frames him in a bad boy pose as he hesitates before the entrance, and the soundtrack clobbers you with another "BWAAAAAAAARRRRRRRMMMMMM!"

This kind of thing happens, by my count, another twenty to fifty times. I can see why the filmmakers did it. It is very addictive. Whenever I do anything in my apartment now, I scream, "BWAAAAAARRRRRRMMMMM!" to preface it. I open the cabinet for some soup? "BWAAAAAARRRRRRMMMMM!" I get out the can opener? "BWAAAAAARRRRRMMMMM!" It drives my girlfriend up the wall.

This movie thinks it's scary, and it lets you know from frame one. It is not. It barely even makes sense.
