I find some bad ass VHS tapes at the Goodwill Bins here in Portland Oregon! A ton of cheezy awesome wretched horror flicks are always coming my way. From Roger Corman’s Concorde Pictures comes “The Nest” which was one of my most recent finds and it was pretty bad in a very good way! Set in a quiet town of North Port, the citizens there encounter a serious roach problem which is only about to get worse! That’s when the cool guy Sherrif Tarbell enters the picture with suspisions that the town’s mayor is in ca-hoots with an evil genetics corporation called INTEC who’s secretly experimenting with roaches and trying to hybridize them with other animals and yeah you guessed it humans!!
Guess what? People and pets start to disappear. Guess what else? That damn cool guy Sherriff Tarbell was right dammit! I must say though for the first 3/4 of the movie I was wondering if there was going to be anything other than a 100 roaches the director probably got from the local pet store running around all over furniture and people, I mean the cover of the movie box shows a giant roach strangling a woman in her bra and panties! I was pleasantly surprised when all hell breaks loose!
The final monster was so rad, like a giant mash of humans and roaches wheeled along on a roller platform! I recommend seeking this out if you love you some shitty highly campy horror! You’ve been warned!
Here’s some of the best parts of this movie- beware of spoilers!!!
