“‘Under the Bed’ is a loving tribute to all the horror classics I grew up with, from Steven Spielberg’s ‘Poltergeist’ to Joe Dante’s ‘Gremlins’ and ‘The Howling’ to John Carpenter’s ‘The Thing,’” said XLrator Media CEO Barry Gordon, who negotiated the deal with Ehud Bleiberg and Giulia Prenna of Bleiberg Entertainment. “Films like that are rare today and director Steven C. Miller perfectly captures the essence, style and sheer fun of those timeless films for a new generation of fans.”

Bleiberg Entertainment’s Compound B label is handling international rights during AFM.

XLrator Media has recently released “Ironclad,” “Killing Bono,” “Knuckle” and “Assassin’s Bullet," among others.
