Patton Oswalt on Death Bed

I was having a discussion with Semaj over at his blog, and a particular Patton Oswalt joke came up, and in looking for it on Youtube, I happened to find this gem. He is discussing a 1977 movie that was never released at the theatres and had just come out on DVD called Death Bed: The Bed that Eats.

I knew that Patton was punching up scripts for Pixar, but I wasn't aware that he was working in screenplays of his own as well, so there really does seem to be an element of truth to the comedy.

Part of me really wants to see Death Bed: The Bed that Eats now too... and from looking up the movie on the IMDB, a lot of other people saw it because he ripped it a new one too.

hmm the guy on the vid burns it to the ground, but let's be honest..there've been made horror movies about less original ideas haha.

Brilliant Comedy Bit. I just Googled Death Bed and checked out a funny ass clip too. Magically, the director/writer has only done one film.

Arjan: It isn't about the originality of the idea... it is about its utter stupidity, and despite that, it still got made.

Semaj: People keep telling me that Cory's dad from Boy Meets World is in it... so it has to be special.
