Movie Reviews

Viewer Beware
Horror Buff | Hickory, NC | 05/04/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I so rarely give one or five stars, but this movie really earned it. I struggled to finish it. The plot is reasonable enough. A nurse is murdered by a doctor and other nurses after threatening to reveal they were selling body parts from the deceased. When her own body parts are not claimed, she begins exacting revenge from those who killed her. Unfortunately, the tale is poorly executed, rambling from one unconnected scene to the next, with several hauntings leaving you to believe a nurse is dead, when her final moments are actually shown a half hour later. There are a few gory moments, but they often lack context or appear hurried. There is a feeling that the movie is a collection of random scenes, edited later to fit the plot. The cast of Asian nurses is an attractive one, but they present themselves like eye candy in a campy low budget American flick. The ghost, if you will, reminds one of the standard creepy Asian girl, with dark hair partially covering one eye, moving creepily. Unfortunately, this one is covered with dark grease paint, and has a habit of posing like a soap opera star waiting for the cheating boyfriend. This is particularly interesting because the ghost in the early part of the film is more vague and indistinct than what she becomes later in the second half. Just another example of a film that lacks any real coherence. It's as if it were directed by several different people, or at the very least, a few different personalities. There is a bit of a twist at the end, but it is by no means an adequate payoff for what you must suffer through to get there."
Entertaining Thai Horror

"Sick Nurses is a story about a neglected hospital and 7 young nurses and a doctor who work there. It turns out the nurses and doctor are selling body parts of their dead patients on the black market. Soon one of the nurses threatens to blow the whistle and ends up murdered. The ghost of the woman then comes back and uses the nurses and doctors obsessions and fears to murder them with to exact revenge. The ghost is also forcing them to kill eachother to get revenge for her murder. The ghost can cause hallucinations, also manipulate their will.

What I really loved about this movie is the way it was directed. The use of colors is exquisite. The way a bar bell floats in the air, the way the fan winds blow, the way the rain drips on the windows, and the way a clock pours blood will strike you as something new. Very creative, It is beautifully directed.

This received lower ratings on some websites, Why? I don't know. It's a lot better than most of the Asian horror movies out today.

There were some very strange killings in this. Very inventive and unlike anything you most likely have ever seen.

Would I call it scary? Not really. Would I call it unique? Yes. It's a unique ghost story with inventive killings and haunts. Entertaining, Good looking actors, Great Use of Colors and a spooky yet slightly disturbing ghost story. Recommended.

Sick Nurses.

"This was a decent Thai horror flick, I'll be honest I haven't been really that impressed with any of the latest Thai horror films that I've seen in the past mainly because they were usually quite bad or because they just couldn't manage to create the bleak and dark atmosphere of dread that's prevalent in Japanese and Korean horror films, and they usually end up having hackneyed plots or pointless meanderings. This film actually wasn't that bad and it had a decent budget, and not to mention it has plenty of hot babes in tight nurse uniforms and the gore scenes were great but I felt like the plot wasn't going anywhere and it seemed abit too predictable. The film was set in a strange hospital that doesn't seem to specialize in patients, where a group of young (and hot!) nurses who along with a young doctor they all lust for, have been selling organs from the recently dead for fun and profit. One of the nurses is going to marry the doctor but when she finds out that he's having an affair with her sister, all hell breaks loose and the nurse ends up getting killed by her colleagues. It's ten minutes to midnight and all the nurses are getting ready to go home. But the vengeful spirit of the dead nurse has other plans. Yeah the film has alot of cliches and the acting was pretty bad but it was still halfway decent and it did provide some nice eye candy, one scene where one of the nurses gets strangled by long pieces of hair was ripped off from Exte which in my opinion was a better Asian horror flick than this. There were some nice gore scenes including a decapitation by handbag? and one of the twins forced to hack up her sister in a bath tub (nice!) and another scene where a bulimic nurse is forced to eat broken pieces of glass which results in the removal of her lower jaw with her tongue wagging before falling out, and eaten by a cat in the room(..followed by a flying dead fetus hurling into her mouth!). The film might have lots of blood and gore but it still felt like there was something missing. I don't know, I still thought it was average but I guess that some parts were enjoyable to a certain level, watch it for the blood and guts and attractive Asian women but don't bother finding a good storyline.
