In 1973 George Barry wrote, directed and produced Death bed: The Bed That Eats. It would not be officially released until 2003 (then on DVD) but would go on to become a cult classic through a pirated edition in Europe. The full film is up on you tube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PE45groHd6Q
Wilmington’s inventor Jock Brandis worked on Death Bed as a Gaffer and made The Bed actually “eat”.
Patton Oswlat made the rediscovered film famous through his material lamenting that someone put money into Death Bed but he can’t get his work made. Jock is actually the guy Oswalt is making fun of for making The Bed. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=01l1WIC9mBo
