The terror that hides inside your mind will soon be the terror that hides in your media player. Armand Weston’s The Nesting (1980) is coming to DVD and BD from Blue Underground on June 28. This is quite the unexpected announcement as the title has long been associated with Code Red DVD as a future release and was still buried as a page on their website last we checked. But if any other company exercises due diligence in acquisitions, it’s Bill Lustig’s BU. Extras are thin, but in this case the most special feature is the film itself – we’ll be getting the previously unreleased Director’s Cut! Read on for the synopsis, cover art and disc details.
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 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 High Definition from the original camera negative and is presented here in a never-before-seen Director’s Cut!
