REVIEW: Under The Bed
At some point in our lives we have lost sleep believing in the existence of an evil monster dwelling under our beds. In his follow-up to The Aggression Scale, Director Steven C. Miller takes great pride in bringing this very nightmare to life.
After a two-year absence following something horrible, Neal (played by Jonny Weston) returns to his family home to aid his younger brother and fight a malevolent presence which their parents just won’t understand.
The Monster Squad, Goonies, and The Gate, Under the Bed serves well as a love letter to 80’s horror and adventure movies. Containing imaginative kids, incredulous parents, practical effects, and the focus on atmosphere, the movie is does not come without any flaws. However, the film is certainly worth enduring as the last half is simply outstanding and goes to some incredibly dark lengths to scare the audience.
So if you’re an 80s child or just a fan of 80s cinema, I have no doubt that you will love this movie!
