Paz de la Huerta, Katrina Bowden


February 7, 2014

Doug Aarniokoski


1 hour 23 minutes



"Nurse" for me is a hard film to fully digest mentally.  On one hand, it's a gory, well-executed slasher flick with a great performance from "Boardwalk Empire" star Paz de la Huerta.  On the other hand, it's a stupid, dumb, and excessively gory film  that's graced with an annoying performance from Paz de la Huerta.  I mean, the film can be considered to be "so bad it's good," but sometimes it was just annoying to watch and I just wanted someone to ax the crazy nurse already.  People can not be THIS stupid to actually believe that the girl who just got a job as a nurse is crazier than the lady who likes to fully pronounce every little word and squint her eyes at everyone.  Look, this isn't the absolute worst horror film one will see this year, but I can almost guarantee that not many people will remember this film by the end of 2014, myself included.  Overall, "Nurse" could have been a self aware, funny, and extremely entertaining slasher flick, but instead it has stupid characters, an intriguing but annoying villain, and 3D "pop out" moments that belong in 2011.  If you want a REAL self aware, funny, and extremely entertaining horror flick, then go watch "The Cabin in the Woods."

Hello viewers of this blog,

Due to recent comments of spam and profanity present from obnoxious kids who think they are the funniest people in the world, I would like to request that the comments posted here are in good taste, meaning that they have no Anti-Semitic remarks, profanity, sexual innuendo, or any insults to myself. You can criticize the review and give pointers on how to make them better, but how about we be adults about this. Ok? Thank you, and have a nice day.
