Product Description

The Terror That Hides Inside Your Mind!

Agoraphobic mystery novelist Lauren Cochran decides to leave the city in an attempt to cure her recent writer's block. She rents an old Victorian house in the quiet countryside, unaware of its shocking history. As those around her suffer increasingly violent deaths, Lauren begins to unravel the truth: the house was once an infamous brothel now haunted by the victims of a bloody massacre. Will her terrifying phobia allow her to escape from THE NESTING?

Also known as MASSACRE MANSION and PHOBIA, this eerie house of horrors was co-written, produced, and directed by notorious adult filmmaker Armand Weston, and stars Robin Groves (STEPHEN KING'S SILVER BULLET), John Carradine (SHOCK WAVES, THE HOWLING), and Academy Award(r) winner Gloria Grahame (THE BAD AND THE BEAUTIFUL, OKLAHOMA!) in her final film role. Long unavailable on home video, THE NESTING has been newly transferred in blood-curdling High Definition from the original camera negative!

Remember: the house is really awesome!!!

Good story and some gore without the gratuitous bloodshed in horror movies today.
Gibson Girl
See it, and you've seen one of the best ghost-stories since the coming of film.

THE NESTING Concerns an agoraphobic novelist (Robin Groves) who moves into a house that just might be haunted. Along the way, we are introduced to the impatient therapist, the ultra-goofy boyfriend, the cranky handyman, and an extremely nasty man named Abner (!). Thankfully, most of these jerks are subjected to horrible deaths at the hands of supernatural forces! This is a horror / thriller along the lines of THE SHINING, THE SENTINEL, BURNT OFFERINGS, etc., and has a solid story w/ a nice, twisty ending. Enjoy...

The Nesting looks like it was shot in NY State, which is always a good idea because it has so many great locations that would work in a horror movie, and the makers of this movie found a house as archetypal to horror as the one in Psycho. There's no ghost story in cinema history like this that I've ever seen, and it delivers the good on atmosphere, shock, suspense, and has a few great scares to it. The late seventies and early eighties were a boom period for horror. The Nesting is one that didn't do that badly, but for some reason fell under the cultural radar for a very long time.

Blue Underground's claim that it's been "unavailable" on video is generally true. I remember seeing this one time, and one time only on cable in the eighties, never seeing it again until I bought this Blu-ray, incredible, but it was well worth the wait. As usual, BU has done a perfect job here with the transfer, both in sound and audio, boosting the sound up to an optional 7.1 mix. Everything here is real HD. Strongly recommended in every sense if you love horror.

For a person suffering from agoraphobia, the lead character, Lauren Cochran (played by Robin Groves) sure got around! Since the plot never really took full advantage of that, realistically speaking, I can't figure out why it was mentioned so often and used so little. She was literally running all over the place! And, it wasn't the least bit interesting. As horror movies go (and this one really didn't), you need to stay focused, on target. Pick a plot point and run with it, not just run!
The premise was almost too basic: a writer rents a house to write in and soon discovers it's haunted and that she might have some kind of connection to it. The owner of the house is an old geezer with a secret (the always dependable John Carradine). To round out the cast there are scads of local creepy people (all connected to THE secret), a nondescript boyfriend, and a rather snotty therapist. This isn't counting all the ghosts. The deaths are few and far between but rather well done (I especially love the sickle scene). I also liked some of the weird dream sequences. My only major complaint has to do with the casting of Robin Groves as the writer who never gets around to writing. She is thoroughly unsympathetic, I found her more annoying than likable. When you can't care about what the main character is suffering through, that doesn't leave much to hold your interest. It also didn't help that the pacing is a bit slow and the movie is too long.

I have to start out by saying, when I first saw the nesting it was transfer from a VHS and I really did not like the movie. Fast forward to present time I saw blue underground was going to releasing it, surprised blue underground put time and effort into a new release and not wasting their time releasing everything they have already released on blue ray, with that said I like blue undergrounds work and I decided to give the movie a second try and I really enjoyed the movie, it's not a bloody or gory movie per say, but it does have its moments and it will not dissapoint (go into the movie with an open mind Another thing I really appreciated about this movie is that the story is really good, and it does not drag along like the majority of horror movies. Blue Underground did a hell of a job with this release and it would be nice to start seeing them put more effort into aquiring new titles, hopefully a offical announcement comes soon that they are releasing Joe Zito's Bloodrage.

Preamble . I've upped my walking schedule to 6 days a week (an hour per walk) in addition to work , choirs , shopping , house cleaning and animal tending (two beautiful cats) , etc . I was a bit tired today , however....
That did not made a damn bit of difference in my review of this , inexplicably , customer well regarded turkey . This is a REALLY ridiculous horror film . This coming , as it is , from a REAL horror enthusiast .
There comes a point in some horror pictures , wherein often much forgiving on the viewer's part is required , when one fails to give even the slightest bit of a hoot about the central character . Let alone the remainder of the cast . Said point comes well before the mid mark in this stinker . After a Psych Doctor friend of many years has died abruptly after arriving to aid our damsel in distress and another fellow has attempted rape , we determine that , evidently , tomorrow's another day for said lass . Both incidents occur a couple/several days apart and are rejoined by many other peculiar and disturbing events . Does our lady in peril have an urge to flee ? Better ask a difficult and surly local if "The house is haunted" first .
Not so bad it's good . Almost but no cigar . Blessed with a wonderful and semi protracted display of our protagonist's breasts and upper torso and many unintentional laughs , it's a close call . Not too close though . Worth an Amazon $1.99 rental for the 80's horror hound completist if bound and determined .
Regardless of how tired I may have been , a "good" (satisfactory) scary picture , would have awaken me like a bold cup of coffee or two . Hate copious live action ghosts as well . Dumbed down to it's core . Insulting and not frightening .
