Movie Reviews

NURSIE makes Katrina look like Minnie Mouse
Horror Fan | Los Angeles via New Orleans | 09/29/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This chick is nuts and over-the-top hysterically out of touch! A great campy little gem of a film that is tongue-in-cheek and winking at the genre with
good fun and some real scares. Maxwell gets some great angles and some
gothic rawness from the Louisiana swamps. The chase scene in the marshy bayou is great fun! The music grabs the horror atmosphere by the throat and there's some great rural tunes as source. Love the Strauss during the tour of the house to visit the patients. A nod to the offbeat musical choices of Kubrick.

A fun, sleeper, independent popcorn film! Swampy!"

"I loved Nursie! It was a combination of Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane, and Misery. I have not had such a good time watching a movie in years. Check it out--Then spread the word!!!"

"I saw Nursie at the premier in Shreveport. It is a movie that keeps you spellbound. It is very exciting and one is holding baited breath waiting for what is coming next.
Savannah was the best as Ada in the movie; no one could have been better.
Thomas C. Howell (Zack) worked his magic as the captured Doctor.
Frieda Jane was great as the abused daughter of Ada.
I liked the movie, because of the great directing and all the actors
were great.
The music was well done and went the script.
The picture quality was excellent."

"This indie feature made on a shoestring made me thankful I came across it. My emotions ran the gamut on this one. I laughed at some of the really scary parts, then looked around to see if anyone heard me. I wasn't sure I was supposed to. It's funny and suspenseful in the strangest, most original way. After I saw it, I went to bed with the following prayer:
"Please God, when I get full-blown dementia, please don't send me to Nursie's assisted living home.""
