From www.horrorsociety.com “’Bedridden’ tells the story of Teri, “a weary widow, facing the painful task of rebuilding her life as a single mother, following a traumatic encounter with an armed assailant. When her worst fears seemingly come true, Teri finds herself bedridden and trapped with her newest foe in a cat and mouse game of life and death.”
