When you read the words “Nerdist presents” in a movie title, you might expect the sort of thing you see on the Nerdist Channel. Pop-culture riffs, funny songs, Chris Hardwick and Wil Wheaton geeking out on things…nope. The Hive is not like that at all. A balls-to-the-wall plague/zombie horror movie, it features a septic sore-covered protagonist who wakes up in a boarded-up cabin next to a corpse, with no memory of how he got there. In time, he begins to recall things – only to realize that the memories might be somebody else’s.
Fathom Events and Nerdist Industries are partnering up to bring Nerdist Presents The Hive, the premiere of a new zombie-thriller, to 500 select cinemas nationwide for a special one-night event tonight, Monday, September 14 at 7:30 p.m. I sat down to talk – on-camera! – with director David Yarovesky.
