    Warner Bros. still owns it, I do believe. Not sure when it'll ever hit DVD.

    Never seen it, so I don't know much about the actual movie itself.

    Nice little haunted brothel flick. It's been ages since I saw it but one particular scene still sticks to mind

    zombiefied ghost hand reaching out a lake near the house

    Would be cool if Warner would release this on DVD.

    I wish they'd put this one out on DVD already. I have the clamshell VHS and transferred it to DVD-R sometime in 2003. I'm getting impatient. ;)

    I was watching the Blue Underground blu-ray tonight. The location in this movie is pretty fascinating, I would have loved to hear the filmmakers talk about it.

    Found these links about the house used (which can also be seen briefly in Across The Universe):
    Wikipedia
    Armour-Stiner House


    In the photo galleries on the disc, there are more location photos from inside the house. But most interesting is a news article shown in the photo gallery.

    The owner of the house filed a million dollar lawsuit against the filmmakers claiming they destroyed the house. She said they even urinated on the floors. I couldn't find anything about the lawsuit on google, does anyone know the outcome?

    Saw this last night and thought it started off really well but didn't like where it went.

    SPOILERS

    It looked as though it were going to be a genuinely creepy ghost story but then became some sort of murder mystery and the pace slowed right down. The house in this film looked awesome and could have been really creepy but they never use it to it's full potential.

    Yeah totally agree. This started out full of potential but lost its way completely. I had the Blue Underground Blu ray which looked very good but alas I only watched it once and resold it.

    After watching I'm glad I didn't blind buy it. I would have done the same thing.

    I did blind buy this on the strength of the other Blue Underground releases in my collection of which most I hold in high regard. I must say that the Blu ray looked and sounded excellent and if your a fan its a must have. But for me it was a one view movie.

    I know the feeling. It's been on my wishlist for ages now. I've decided to view a lot of the films I have on there and decide if I want to buy them after that. The transfer did look great. Awesome job in that respect from BU.

    Is there anything similar on your wishlist? If yes post them here and im sure myself or any other forum members could sway you to a yes or no decision on these titles and then it could be a blind buy with a recomendation.

    Nothing in regards to haunted house films at the moment. Thanks though. If I think of anything I'll ask :)

    Sometimes it's easier to check things out for yourself. I know I usually still want to see things that others don't care for. If it's hard to find or something I've never heard of I often come here first. Just depends.

    Always enjoyed the movie for what it is, and the opening is indeed well done. I won't part with my Blu-ray for nostalgic reasons. Watching The Nesting reminds me of the good old video rental days, and besides, the movie isn't really all that crappy.
