It’s the latest film to layer supernatural fear atop the usual pregnancy concerns.

BED REST will premiere as a Tubi Original on the free VOD service December 7. Written and directed by Lori Evans Taylor, it stars Melissa Barrera (SCREAM 2022), Guy Burnet, Paul Essiembre and Erik Athavale. The synopsis: “After years of struggling to start a family, Julie Rivers [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.”
