| "Death Comes Slow To Those Who Run!"...
In the sleepy island town of North Port, not much ever happens. Sheriff Richard Tarbell (Franc Luz) seems to have the easiest job in town. His only complication in life is whether to be involved w/ local waitress, Lillian (Nancy Morgan) or the mayor's daughter, Beth (Lisa Langlois). That is, until a gruesome discovery turns out to be the beginning of a coming slaughter. Mayor Elias Johnson (Robert Lansing- 4D MAN, EMPIRE OF THE ANTS, ISLAND CLAWS) appears to know what's going on, having to do w/ a certain scientific installation called INTEC and its heartless Dr. Morgan Hubbard (Terri Treas). INTEC has been up to no good, attempting to create super-roaches for nefarious purposes. Grisly, disgusting horror ensues. THE NEST is the perfect movie for the carnivorous cockroach connoisseur! Bug haters beware! These pests are shown in crawling piles and gobs! So, if insects make you squirm, and death by flensing isn't your thing, avoid this film! BEST SCENES: #1- The diner cook in the dumpster! #2- Lillian defending the diner against the six-legged horde! #3- Oh yes! The mutant, cat roach! #4- Mayor Roach-enstein! #5- The hopelessly rushed final conflict! Preposterous beyond all reason, this is 80's schlock horror at its finest! Bon Appetit...
