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.

A tightly wound fiction writer with more issues than Vogue figures that moving into an abandoned mansion in the middle of the woods will help her write. Little does she know that a horrible crime took place in the old mansion many years ago, one that left several "women of the night" dead. Our anxiety-ridden hero faces one problem after another, from rotting wood floors, to secretive locals, to a particularly nasty redneck, all the while dealing with the various ghosts of prostitutes that haunt the old house. Turns out, the vengeful ghosts want something, and our main character figures greatly in their plans. Overall this is not a good movie. The idea of hooker ghosts haunting an old brothel is a cool one, especially for the early 80s. But it's just bungled with a bad, cliched script, miscasting, lousy pacing, amateurish acting, etc.

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...

This is a really good film, despite the reviewer that made weak points out of mole hills. If you're the type of viewer who needs the film to actually scrawl the date and time at the beginning of each scene, this film is not for you. Time passes, which is why one reviewer complained about the lead's agoraphobia--we see her struggling with it, then "suddenly" cured, then suffering with it again, and all for very good plot-driven reasons and spread over a period of time.

I saw this film clandestinely as a kid. The film has several gotcha moments where even though I knew what was coming, it still startled me into jumping--sign of a grade A thriller. The film has atmosphere--one moment ordinary life is going on, the next the world has become eerie and threatening.

All in all, this film is certainly worth inclusion in your horror/suspense collection.

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.
