I haven't seen Ticks but I rather liked The Nest. So while I've wanted to get Ticks the outpouring of support for Ticks surprises me. I really want to see Ticks now.
The Nest takes a lot of its cues from The Thing and The Fly. That's not to say it compares favorably to them, just that some scenes do a good job recreating that vibe. Since I'm a big fan of both Thing/Fly the Nest is kinda like bonus material to them.
The combined weight of the horrors I have authored wrought would crush your carbon hearts into perfect diamonds of terror!
