Tubi which has a library of thousands of horror movies has just announced it has acquired the exclusive U.S. streaming rights to the STXfilms supernatural thriller, Bed Rest.

 

Starring Melissa Barrera (“In the Heights,” “Scream”) the film is written by Lori Evans Taylor (“Final Destination 6”) who is making her directing debut.

 

STXfilms has the global distribution rights for Bed Rest, which STXinternational has licensed the film worldwide. The film is produced by William Sherak, James Vanderbilt, and Paul Neinstein through their Project X Entertainment banner, along with Evans Taylor and Barrera. Financing for the film was provided by Bondit Media.

 

In the film, “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.”

 

“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,” said Adam Lewinson, Chief Content Officer, Tubi. “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.”

 

“We knew Melissa was the perfect choice to headline this film with her natural talent and work ethic,” said Project X Entertainment. “Having the pleasure of working with Melissa on two “Scream” films, she’s showcased her interest in all facets of filmmaking and proved to be an unbelievable producing partner, as well as a welcome part to the PXE family. We’re excited that all of us could come together to tell this thrilling story that Lori Evans Taylor created in her directorial debut.”Barrera captivated audiences in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s movie musical adaptation of “In the Heights,” for Warner Bros.
