First poster & images from Alex de la Iglesia-produced Shrew's Nest

Spanish genre icon Alex de la Iglesia is donning his producers cap for the upcoming horror tale SHREW'S NEST, and we've got the first poster and images from the flick to share with ya.

Alex de la Iglesia may be best known for his 1995 international hit THE DAY OF THE BEAST, but for many fans it is his 2010 hit film THE LAST CIRCUS that ranks as a modern cult classic. We've been dying to check out his WITCHING & BITCHING, which IFC Midnight picked up for a North American release back in December. Now the prolific director is jumping into the producer role for directors Juan Fernando Andrés and Esteban Roel's SHREW'S NEST, and we've got the synopsis, first poster, and two new images to share with ya below.

Spain, the 1950s. Montse is no longer a young woman. She lost the blush of youth caring for her little sister, holed up in a sinister apartment in downtown Madrid.

Their mother died giving birth to the little one and their father couldn't handle it. He fled like a coward and left the girls alone. Forced to be father, mother and big sister, Montse hid away from life inside those four walls, feeding her obsessive and unbalanced temperament. She suffers from agoraphobia and cannot take a single step outside the house. Not understanding what is happening to her and the suffering that this strange disease causes her makes her take shelter within a world of Our Fathers and Holy Marys.

Montse works as a seamstress and her only link to reality is her sister, a girl who will soon no longer be a girl. One day, the chain is broken when Carlos (HUGO SILVA), an irresponsible young neighbor, is misfortunate enough to stumble down the stairwell and looks for help at the only door he was able to drag himself to.

Montse takes him in.

Someone has entered the shrew's nest.

...Perhaps he'll never leave

The film stars Macarena Gomez (Sexy Killer, Witching & Bitching), Nadia de Santiago (Niños Robados), Luis Tosar (Sleep Tight, Cell 211) and Hugo Silva (Witching & Bitching).
