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!

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.
Not this one, I assure you.
The Nesting has some death-scenes (ofcourse, it's still a horror-flick) but they're gripping and intense. The plot is confusing from time to time, leaving the viewer wondering and aching to discover the truth. In the end you get it all, the whole thing, and everything falls into place.
Although some of the actors don't really seem to do their best with their characters, leaving them flat and hollow, the star of this movie (Robin Groves) really goes for the kill (figure of speech). She's great!
For me, this one goes to the shelf of classic golden-oldies. See it, and you've seen one of the best ghost-stories since the coming of film.
This one has both, but in style and in proportions.
However some of the actors are corny actors from time to time, the leading lady (Robin Groves) is brilliant as a self-doubting writer with agrofobia. I hate movies in which the characters does things seemingly without good reason. I see that as a flaw by the writer. The Nesting has a good story (not perfect, but better than average) and all the pieces fall into place eventually.
See this one and you've seen one of the better ghost flicks around.
