Like any good boogeyman or monstrosity, horror films have a tendency to creep up on you. We're not talking about that palpable dread you get while watching a movie, some movies literally crawl under the radar without any of us news outlets knowing about them until they're virtually knocking on our back door ready to be seen.
This is the case for The Nest. What's known about it? Not much, sadly. There's an official site and it has nothing to do with the 1988 killer cockroach film of the same name.
There is a Flash-fueled trailer to watch. It teases us with the story of Jacob Kell, a maniac who killed thirty-five people in the 1940s and was found in a dive of a house with his last victim and was taken down by authorities. Cut to sixty years later. Kell has return and "something" (it's always something, ain't it?) has returned with him. The trailer is a snazzy mix of clips, aged photographs and newspaper clippings (ala the Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake promos) but there certainly is a whole lotta word play.
The site offers visitors a chance to attend the September premiere of The Nest in Phoenix, Arizona.
