Tubi has struck a deal with STX Films to stream their latest horror film ‘Bed Rest,’ starring Melissa Barrera, who is also a producer for the flick, and directed by Lori Evans Taylor in her feature film directorial debut. The movie’s production was handled by Project X Entertainment and Bondit Media while STX International acquired the distribution rights.
Barrera expressed excitement for the deal, saying in a statement, “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,” she added.
Besides Barrera (Scream), the movie also stars Guy Burnet (Pitch Perfect 3), Edie Inksetter (Spiral), Sebastian Billingsley-Rodriguez (Love, Guaranteed), Erik Athavale (Sniper: Rogue Mission), Kristen Sawatzky (Todd and the Book of Pure Evil), and Paul Essiembre (The Ice Road).

“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.”
