Toronto Film Review: ‘Shrew’s Nest’

15 September 2014 10:35 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

that marks the feature debut of directing duo Juanfer Andres and Esteban Roel. Produced by Alex de la Iglesia, this typically high-polish, psychologically angled Spanish horror-thriller is well handled in all departments even if its ideas never feel particularly fresh, or their execution more than solid. Offshore sales should be decent without approaching the genre’s higher export watermarks of recent years.

Their mother having died in childbirth, and their absent father presumed dead for nearly as many years, Montse (Macarena Gomez) has been both affectionate sibling and an occasionally heavy-handed surrogate mother/authority figure to her younger sis (Nadia de Santiago, playing a figure who, for no obvious reason, goes unnamed throughout). The latter, who’s just turned 18, goes out to work each day and is a normal, well-adjusted girl. The same can hardly be said for Montse, a high-strung religious fanatic and agoraphobe who keeps her sibling on »

Tiff 14: ‘Shrew’s Nest’ and ‘Spring’ tackle the complex nature of femininity and love, in their own twisted ways

7 September 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Spring

Written by Justin Benson

Directed by Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead

USA, 2014

Shrew’s Nest  (Musarañas)

Written by Juanfer Andrés

Directed by Juanfer Andrés and Esteban Roel

Spain, 2014

Over the years, Tiff’s Midnight Madness programme has lost some of its grit. Once upon a time, a film as bodacious as Shrew’s Nest would have graced its lineup. Now, the Vanguard programme seems to have stepped up to take its place. While Madness highlights trendier, more easily digestible content, Vanguard takes on the more obscure. Sexy, gritty, dirty, and horrific, Vanguard’s content is far more outlandish than its older, now slightly more restrained cousin. Odd when you consider that both programmes are curated by the jovial horror fanatic Colin Geddes.

Enter two of the shining stars of Tiff’s 2014 roster – Juanfer Andrés and Esteban Roel’s Shrew’s Nest, and Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead’s Spring. »

Tiff 2014: Sibling Rivalry Leads to Horror in Álex de la Iglesia Produced Shrew's Nest [Trailer]

29 July 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

There's little doubt when you see the name Álex de la Iglesia, that you're in for something unusual so it's no surprise that Shrew's Nest, which is presented by de la Iglesia, looks like a twisted bit of horror.

Macarena Gómez and Nadia De Santiago star as shut-in sisters, one of whom despises the other. When the upstairs neighbour falls down the stairs and drags himself to the sisters' door, he's brought into the sisters' sanctum though from the looks of it, he would have been better off leaving himself on the stairwell to be found by a passerby. These sisters aren't planning on letting him go any time soon and judging from the trailer, Shrew's Nest devolves into a mix of Misery and Boxing Helena with Carlos in a pickle he's unlikely to emerge [Continued ...] »
