i was looking up movies with Lisa Langlois, who i recently saw in the movies, 1984 (what a movie..) and Happy Birthday To me.

i've never seen this movie about meat-eating mutant roaches?!? if you've seen it, share your thoughts, please?

i loved Lisa Langlois in 1984 and her punk look.

i think she's beautiful [Smile]

I haven't seen "The Nest," which is one of those Roger Corman Concorde pictures that eluded me back in the day, and one I hope The Shout Factory will get around to releasing on DVD. Your pictures of Canadian actress Lisa Langlois brought back some good memories for me, Ronnie. I always liked her, and she was--still is--in a lot of stuff, mostly made in Canada. Her most memorable role, for me at least, was with Steve Guttenberg in the long-forgotten 3D movie (from that short run of 3D movies back in the early 80's along with "Comin at Ya," "Metalstorm," "Parasite," etc.) "The Man Who Wasn't There" (1983). It's a terrible movie, but Lisa Langlois naked and in 3D is quite a sight to behold. Quite a sight... Yep... Uh-huh... Losing consciousness... <swoon>

I saw The Nest in the early 90s but don´t remember much.
I own this UK VHS tape and i´ll try to check the movie one of these days and give my thoughts.

thanks for posting that aTomik! [Smile] ya, let me know what you think?

i'm glad you liked the pics, Crash. i looked her up after watching 1984. and i didn't find much on her, but it would be nice to see other movies with her.

i thought she was pretty as a young actress and still looks great in her more recent pics.

as for the Nest, i don't usually venture out into those "mutation" type flicks, because they give me the willies, but i am going to track this one down and the movie aTomik posted about "Forbidden World"...i already added that one to my netflix queue. my husband is a sci-fi fan and i think he would enjoy it. [Smile]

Just watched The Nest. It was a decent low-budget horror movie.

Evil corporation INTEC + small town mayor looking for more power and fame = disaster.

Roaches everywhere, some cool characters (especially Stephen Davies as Homer),
pretty Lisa Langlois and superhot Heidi Helmer in a way too small role.

"Shower fresh Lisa Langlois but sadly no shower scene in this one"

 -

Loved the mutant cat flying around and couple of other nasty looking creatures.
I only recommend this for fans of these small town nature strikes back movies.

"You evil INTEC lady, i´m going to eat ya!"

 -

Trailers on the VHS: Spaceballs, Moonstruck, Overboard, Ewoks: The Battle For Endor,
The Lawless Land (with Amanda Peterson!), Fatal Beauty and Masquerade

I wonder how Crash could have foreseen this, since his message is dated nearly 2 years ago.

Was it an omen ?? [Eek!]
(..cue scary The Omen soundtrack music for full impact here..) [Big Grin]

Anyhow, my Shout! Factory blu-ray / dvd combo-pack came in early. Release date was set for february 19th.
I already had the New Concorde dvd which was released over a decade ago. I always thought it was
a pretty cool movie. Nancy Morgan is in it too. She was Ron Howard's co-star in Grand Theft Auto (1977),
which was also produced by Roger Corman.

There haven't been any reports on what bonus-materials will be featured on this new edition,
but i'm sure this blu-ray / dvd combo-pack will be an ideal opportunity to reaquaint oneself with.. The Nest ! [Smile]
