The movie Nurse, released in 2013, is a thriller that is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat throughout its 84-minute runtime. The film, directed by Douglas Aarniokoski, stars Paz de la Huerta, Katrina Bowden and Judd Nelson in leading roles. The plot of the movie revolves around the character of Abby Russell (Paz de la Huerta), a nurse by profession, who works in a hospital by day and transforms into a sociopathic killer by night. She preys on men who mistreat women and uses her sexual appeal to seduce them before brutally murdering them. Alongside her job at the hospital, she also enrolls in bars and nightclubs scouting for new victims to quench her thirst for blood.

When a new nurse named Danni (Katrina Bowden) joins the hospital, Abby takes it upon herself to teach her the ways of the hospital and make her comfortable. As Abby and Danni start to bond and become close friends, Abby finds herself struggling to hide her true identity and maintain her facade in front of her new friend.

Judd Nelson also stars in the movie as the suspicious Detective John Rogan who is trying to track down the serial killer that has been wreaking havoc in the city. Rogan becomes increasingly suspicious of Abby after a few incidents occur that she is connected to.

As the film progresses, Abby becomes increasingly unstable as her killing spree continues to surge at full throttle. She starts to lose her grip on reality and struggles to keep her true identity hidden from Danni and Rogan. With the danger of her secrets being revealed, Abby must find a way to escape and continue her killing spree without being caught.

One of the most striking aspects of the film is its use of contrasting tones. The hospital scenes are bright and sterile, contrasting starkly with the darkly lit, sinister scenes of Abby on the prowl at night. The sound design is equally effective, with the mundane sounds of hospital equipment serving as a backdrop to Abby's gruesome deeds. The film's score is eerie and adds to the unsettling atmosphere.

The characters are well-written and well-acted by the cast. Paz de la Huerta delivers an impressive performance as Abby, portraying her character as a complex figure with psychological trauma. Bowden's portrayal of Danni, the new nurse who trusts Abby, lends the story an additional layer of suspense as her character is put in increasing danger as Abby tries to maintain her cover.

In conclusion, Nurse is a gripping thriller that expertly balances its gruesome content with intelligence, wit and stylish cinematography. The well-written characters, sharp dialogue and expert direction make it a finely crafted film. For fans of horror and suspense, Nurse is a must-watch film that is sure to leave you wanting more.

Nurse is a 2014 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 24 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.5 and a MetaScore of 29.
