Audience Reviews for The Nesting (Massacre Mansion)(Phobia)


This one was a blind-buy on Blu-ray, and I can happily say that I thoroughly enjoyed this ghost story set in a remote & creepy house, where an agoraphobic writer has holed up to work on her latest book. There are some of the usual 'city slicker' out of their element tropes, as well as a decent mystery as to what the spirits are on about with all their haunting, so what's not to like? Well worth a rental or a cable watch should it actually turn up there.

Not great by any means, The Nesting still manages to be an enjoyable piece of 80s supernatural trash that features some genuinely creepy moments and a lot of laughs. It will most likely be enjoyed by fans of 80s horror.
