The storyline and characters from the film are largely based around the backstory of The Nest, a haunted attraction located in Phoenix, Arizona. Although the storyline and locations from the film are almost identical to those presented in the narrative of The Nest, the film didn't use any of the sets or props used by the attraction on which it is based.

slice of life with horror undertone
27 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

Finally, I had the opportunity to watch JACOB and I truly liked the movie. The story line is very compelling and the characters well developed. Indeed, I would describe the movie as a slice of life with a horror undertone. Everything is quite well done , from the script to the cinematography, the editing, the music, you name it. I found the movie to be very entertaining; it even had some humor in it, which made us smile and laugh. The locations, small Texas towns, woods and an amazing old mansion on top of a hill, create a suggestive atmosphere, full of pathos and anticipation. The movie builds up slowly, allowing people to fully understand the events leading to Jacob's final act of rage and, when everything is over, we feel like we want to see more!
