The Nest

Produced by the UK’s Element Pictures and BBC Films, Sean Durkin’s disquieting haunted-house drama is an exercise in mood and malevolence. With atmospheric visuals, production and sound design, and powerhouse performances from Carrie Coon and British actor Jude Law, Durkin orchestrates a growing sense of unease that will get under the skin more powerfully than any jump scare.
