Scream 2022 star Melissa Barrera faces a whole new kind of threat in the upcoming original horror movie, Bed Rest, and today we got our first look at the film with the release of an official trailer – which you can check out below.
The film’s synopsis reads:
After years of struggling to start a family, Julie Rivers (Melissa Barrera) is pregnant again and moving into a new home with her husband as they embrace a fresh start. Upon being ordered to mandatory bed rest, Julie begins to slowly unravel as she suffers through the monotony and anxiety of her new constraints. Soon, terrifying ghostly experiences in the home begin to close in on Julie, stirring up her past demons and causing others to question her mental stability. Trapped and forced to face her past, and the supernatural, Julie fights to protect herself and her unborn baby.
The film sees Lori Evans Taylor pen the script and make her directorial debut.
Barrera, who made her breakout performance as Sam Carpenter in Radio Silence’s Scream reboot earlier this year, will also serve as an executive producer for the film. Speaking more about the release, Barrera said:
“As a first-time producer, it is my profound pleasure to be partnering with Tubi to bring Bed Rest to a savvy and engaged audience. While on the surface, Bed Rest is a horror film, it is a story that will resonate deeply with anyone who’s experienced grief and been haunted by loss. Lori Evans Taylor has created a deeply emotional journey for audiences, and I’m grateful to my partners at Project X and STX for bringing us together to share this story with the world.”
Adam Lewinson, Chief Content Officer for Tubi, also spoke about the upcoming supernatural horror, saying:
“We’re very excited to be the exclusive home for this gripping psychological thriller that has you wondering until the very end if what we see is to be believed. Melissa is absolutely captivating in Bed Rest and we can’t wait for audiences to see her incredible portrayal of this isolated character working through her grief while facing frightening supernatural elements.”
Bed Rest will release exclusively on Tubi on December 7th.
