Under the Bed is a 2012 American horror film directed by Steven C. Miller and starring Jonny Weston, Gattlin Griffith, Peter Holden, and Musetta Vander.


Neal has been living with his aunt following the death of his mother, and it is implied that he attempted to burn their house down. He has just returned to live with his father and new stepmother Angela, and younger brother Paulie. Although everyone seems to welcome him back, his father is very hostile, and the neighborhood kids believe that Neal is crazy. Neal speaks to Paulie about the true cause of their mother's death, revealed to be a monster that lives under their bed and is only repelled by light. The monster has begun to torment Paulie as it did to Neal, and the brothers must formulate a plan to destroy it once and for all.
