It’s time for the world to experience a new vision in science fiction and contagion horror through Nerdist Presents The Hive. The Hive received high praise after its premiere at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas, including a review from acclaimed genre director James Gunn that the movie was “the most horrifying love story ever.”
The film, from producer Cary Granat (Scream) and directed by Dave Yarovesky, stars Gabriel Basso (Kings of Summer, Super 8), Kathryn Prescott (MTV’s Finding Carter, Skins), Jacob Zachar (Greek) and Gabrielle Mann (Vampire Diaries, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones).
Nerdist Presents The Hive tells the story of Adam, a teenage camp counselor who wakes inside a boarded up cabin, with absolutely no memory of who he is or where he is. The only clues as to who he is and what’s happening are messages Adam has scrawled for himself onto the walls and disturbing changes to his physiology. As he begins to piece together the events that led him to his strange imprisonment, he realizes that the only memories he does have are not his own, and they may be the key to his survival.
