Why does rancher Hank (Scott Lynch Giddins) find the gnawed-off skeletons of more and more of his horses and cattle of late? Where does Eleanore (Jamie Newell), owner of a diner in the middle of nowhere, get her honey from - especially considering she calls herself a beekeeper but there aren't any beehives on her land? And why is Eleanore getting utterly hysterical when two customers (Jennifer Scott,  Molly Bina) attempt to steal a glass of honey? And what does she really keep locked up in that well behind the diner that especially her aide (Adrian DiGiovanni) is positively scared of but that needs human flesh every once in a while? And why is that well dispensing ... Eleanore's own award-winning brand of honey?

Could the answer to all of this be ... giant killer bees?

 

Above all else, The Nest is a fun genre short. Sure, it might have its (narrative) roots in grindhouse style animal horror from the 1970's, but at the same time it presents its story in a much more bare-to-the-bones way than these movies of old while at the same time playing up the macabre aspects of the plot. Add to that decent pacing that never allows the story to lag, a competent cast, atmospheric camerawork coupled with great locations, and special effects way beyond what you'd expect from a little film like this one (after all, you get baseball-sized killer bees devouring a horse in full gallop), and you've got a movie you'll be entertained by almost certainly.

Definitely recommended for the genre lover.
