Really well done job by Blue Underground and Distribix. The film itself is just one of those films that you seem to miss, and never see. And to be honest, your not missing much, with the plethora of films out there. But the film looks amazing, The HD transfer is clean and crisp, and puts all the other, bootlegged versions , that are sourced from print or video masters to shame. The job in restoring the film was done in ‘William Lustig’ fashion, which usually means, top notch, all the way. Only one or two jumps, but other than that, she looks super. There are lots of extras, as far as slides, trailers, tv spots and multiple language tracks, as well as additional sound options. Also some famous names, worth getting. Some memorable scenes are the lake scene, which is part of the menu loop, and of course, who can forget a sickle to the face, OUCH! Armand Weston deserves credit for taking a chance!
I got mine!
The Nesting, Blu Ray and DVD
Distribix is pleased to announce that Bill Lustig’s , Blue Underground, will be releasing, this Armand Weston horror film from 1980. The film has been beautifully re-stored from the OCN and both picture and sound are excellent. There will be extras like trailers, tv spots, subtitles, ephemera, slideshows, and more. Blue Underground is one of the top tier DVD companies on the market today and they focus on quality and are well known for successfully releasing many cult films onto Blu Ray and DVD.
Besides owning many of the best XXX adult films and sexploitation films, Distribpix also has some unique exploitation gems in the archive, so this is a great opportunity for us to align our more mainstream films from our archive with the high standards of companies like,Blue Underground. This film has been in dire need of a proper release, and Blue Underground is the perfect company to do it. I have learned so much from Bill Lusting on this project, and it is great to work with someone who is so professional and hands on!
The archive that keeps on giving……
In addition to making some of the most amazing XXX features, like Take Off and Expose Me Lovely, Armand Weston was also a very talented artist. Some of his art was used for the movie posters for classics like his Take Off and Radley Metzger’s Maraschino Cherry. In addition to having the original art for those 2 films, I recently discovered this very rare gem!!
It is an original Armand Weston oil painting on canvas, and it was used for the artwork for his 1979 horror “The Nesting”. It is in great condition with very minimal damage. The irony of the whole situation is that it was part of 4 pallets of original artwork that was going to be thrown into dumpsters, thank god it was all saved.
I wonder what I am going to find next???
