WARNING: This movie is not meant to be taken seriously. But if you are in the mood for a sexy, bloody, erotic thriller, then this one is for you. “My name is Abigail Russell and I look like a slut,” says Abigail in her opening line of the movie. Abby is a nurse, an angel of mercy, or should we say, an angel of death. Running only 84 minutes in length, it is definitely worth the watch, especially if you get the chance to see it in 3D.
I’ve been waiting to see this one for a couple of years since first hearing about it in the early stages of production. I didn’t know anything about it except that it was a horror movie starring Paz de le Huerta. I was immediately bewitched by Paz in her incredible performance in Enter the Void, one of my all-time favorite movies. Her public persona of drunken and drug-fueled antics and sexual exploits make her anything but normal, following in the footsteps of Courtney Love, Asia Argento, and the like. Maybe her eccentric personality is what makes her such a good artist.
Anyway, Paz’s character Abby is a nurse by day and a killer by night. She lures unsuspecting men with her overt sexual approaches. She doesn’t do this just for the thrill of it; she chooses men who deserve it. She takes those no good, cheating, sons of bitches and murders the shit out of them. It has something to do with her childhood and her addiction to men.
Danny Rogers, played by Katrina Bowden (Tucker & Dale vs. Evil, Piranha 3DD), is the beautiful new nurse that catches Abby’s eye. Abby takes her out for a drink one night and Danny is drugged and sleeps with a stranger- leverage that Abby will later use against her. Danny loses her nursing virginity with a particularly bloody wreck of carnage. Abigail wants to comfort her but she runs to her boyfriend instead. Jealousy is a dangerous thing when it is comes from a man-hating, bloodthirsty nurse.
When Danny starts to suspect foul activity, Abby manages to turn the cops and her boyfriend against her. But murder can’t stay hidden for long, and eventually Abby goes on a crazy, murdering rampage. Medical instruments for murder weapons provide for some remarkable and unique death scenes. This film has more murders per minute in the gory, bloodbath conclusion than I have ever seen. And may I add 3D blood is awesome!!
The costuming in the film is fantastic, definitely appealing to a man’s eye. But let’s be honest, Nurse Abby is butt-naked with full frontal nudity more often than not. Paz de le Huerta is no stranger to nudity on film (or off film for that matter). Her insanity in real life definitely makes her the perfect fit for this sex-crazed, homicidal nurse. As far as B-movie horror goes, this one should be the cream of the crop for 2014. If you have 84 minutes, this sleazy, degenerative piece of work will certainly keep you entertained.
