i had never heard of this movie but i own it. i own it because it came in a box set that was ten bucks and contained this, let the right one in and time crimes (which i want to see but haven't yet). how could i not buy this box set? and with a title like sick nurses how could you go wrong?
well i watched this film and while there is stuff to like there is also lots of stuff not to like and in the end does it add up to much? let's find out shall we...
when it comes to the acting some of it is pretty good, some of it is okay and some of it is terrible. the main male cast member is especially bad and does not look the part nor act the part. i didn't buy him as a doctor, let alone an actor.
the female cast fares much better and let me tell you i had no idea thai women could be so beautiful. some of these girls are just stunning and it is a shame there is no nudity in this film. horror and nudity are a great combo and a breast here and there would surely of upped this rating a notch or two.
when it comes to the production specs you have some decent effects and some poor effects. there was a very short making of the dvd where they talk about not using cg and doing all the stuff practical. that made the effects seem a little better but still some did look a little fake.
then there is the editing which is pretty poor at parts. some scenes and moments are well done but many are just shoddy in execution and make the already hard to follow story even harder.
speaking of story i found there were two parts to it. one that worked and one that didn't. before we get there i just want to say i had a hard time knowing who is who in this film, in regards to the nurses. they all wear the same outfit and i couldn't tell who was who (maybe if i was taiwanese i would be able to tell better).
okay the story and the first part. a doctor and his nurses sell dead bodies. the doctor is engaged. he has also inpregnated his fiance's sister. when she finds out they kill her and she returns from the grave to exact her revenge. this part of the story worked really well and as the film progresses you learn more about what happened and more about the characters. it's an interesting story and the characters seem real and are developed well.
the second part of the story is the fiance returning from the grave and exacting her revenge. i got to give credit to the creative and bloody murders on display here. they are gross, disturbing, original and a whole lot of fun. where else can you see a girl forced to use razor blades to cut off her jaw and then a dead fetus specimen is jammed down her throat till she chokes and dies?
with that said though, once the fiance returns she ends up being a typical asian ghost lady that crawls jerkily, is dressed in black, has her hair covering her face and only an eye is visible. you know, like the girl from the ring or the eye or the grudge or a million other asian horror flicks.
and when it comes to consistency with this character and her abilities it is really poorly done. sometimes she can do one thing and another time she can't. i do like the fact that all the nurses are tortured at the same time (11:50) and it all comes together at the end but there are some seriously bad cheats. the worst offender is that at midnight she will disappear but then when midnight hits you see the clock we have been seen all movie and the camera pans over to show that the clock has a 13:00. what the hell is that? now she gets another hour because of this cheat. there is another cheat at the end of the film i won't spoil though. and there is the lack of timing. as in the first hour of the film supposedly happens in 20 minutes. the shoddy editing really stretches this point.
in summary there are parts to sick nurses that work well like the crazy gore and set up story but then there are parts that don't like the cheats, the editing, the consistency of the characters. i'm not gonna lie though, i did end up enjoying this film. the gore and the beautiful faces allowed for that. it's not a very good movie and i wouldn't recommend it but for gore hounds like me you will for sure find something to like.
