An excellent gothic
15 August 2019 | by SuperEnrico95See all my reviews

It is a pleasure to see films of this genre in the Italian panorama. The Nest is directed by Roberto De Feo, here at his first rehearsal as a director. In some places we see that this is his debut film but otherwise he has an excellent staging where the jumpscares are not the tension but the gothic atmospheres and the fact that there is a mystery behind the whole. Excellent the cast, chosen with great care and above all excellent the ending that initially may leave you perplexed but, observing the film, the dialogues and certain enigmatic scenes, we can understand that that ending was well studied. Recommended!
