Horrifying shocker as a biological experiment goes haywire when meat-eating mutant roaches invade an island community, terrorizing a peaceful New England fishing village and hideously ... See full summary »
A giant alien spider escapes from a military lab and rampage the city of Los Angeles. When a massive military strike fails, it is up to a team of scientists and one clever exterminator to kill the creature before the city is destroyed.
Full-throttle splatter-ific Japanese cyberpunk science fiction/horror at its most aggressive, this mind-blower about alien parasites that turn their human hosts into slave "Necroborgs" will leave you dizzy and drained - in a good way.
Dr. Ben Cahill, a fine city doctor, gets so stressed by marital problems and alcohol that he freezes up under pressure in the emergency room. To get his act back together, he decides to unwind a few months in the house he and his ex bought on Orr island, an insignificant (former) fishermen place off the coast of Maine. He almost immediately becomes the butt of spite from a gang of local nobodies. After the doctor started examining, at the request of the reasonable sheriff Hobbs who leans to his side, some animal and human corpses with strange internal as well as external injuries, one of the brutes, not so handy handyman Jack Wald, has a fatal nocturnal accident crashing into Dr. Cahill's car. The doc observes one of the red cockroaches which recently infest the island has pincers, most unusual, reads up and contacts the university entomology department, where this African species isn't too well-known either.

The insect, which this film is about; 'Phylomenescus Cerebus' - the African Armadillo Bug', does not exist.

OK, I live in Guatemala where we have a rainforest in our country and it has a lot of very ugly bugs. Anyway, I saw the movie yesterday with my wife (who has several fears for these bugs) and both were a little scare.
The first hour of the movie is a little boring because we don't see much action. But when the bugs started nesting on a couple of guys, the adrenaline starts to flow. I love the secuence when the queen bug goes inside the sheriff's mouth (remember me the scene with the black cat in "Tales from the Darkside, the movie"). Good FX for a TV movie, but in the other hand, the end was a little disappointing. Is hard to believe the way the bugs gets killed. "They Nest" is one of the best TV movies I saw in a couple of years. Ah.. almost forget. I love the "idea" about a cockroach walking in front of your TV set during a break commercial. My wife scream and later we laugh a lot (of nerves I think). Very enjoyable.
