'The Nesting' Blu-ray Announced and Detailed

Posted Thu Mar 3, 2011 at 08:00 AM PST by

The 1981 cult film Variety called "an atmospheric haunted house thriller!" is going Blu this June.

In an early announcement to retailers, Blue Underground is planning to release 'The Nesting' on Blu-ray on June 28.

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 Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 soundtrack (original mono is also included for purists), and supplements include theatrical trailers, TV spots, and poster & still galleries.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.98.
