Now what would the medical profession be like without the dependable skills of nursing in cinema? Sure, the doctors get their lion’s share of representation in the movies but what about the nurses that serve them? What is so interesting about the portrayal of nurses in film is that they can be characterized beyond the compassionate medical maidens that the public associates them with on a whim. Motion pictures allow for big screen nurses to show some complexity beyond loving bedside manners and juggling bedpans. Cinematic nurses can be caring, comical, crazed, confused or corrupt.
Whatever the complication or consideration of these celluloid servers of health care rest assure that they are a glorified bunch in their devotion to the medical field. Whether flawed or favorable we will take a look at some of the top-notch nurses in film as cited in The Healthy Helpers: The Top 10 Movie Nurses. »

Bondage chic, the Bride of Frankenstein and a ripped bodysuit -- stars are rocking all the wrong trends this week! Emily Blunt walked the red carpet at the "Edge of Tomorrow" premiere in Paris, rocking a half-sheer, half-leather, high-neck top and pencil skirt. While the actress' body looks amazing just three months after giving birth to baby Hazel, this edgy ensemble looks cheap, instead of chic. Pamela Anderson raised some eyebrows at the World Music Awards, where she sported a white gown that was ill fitting, way too long and like a scene out of an "I Love the 90's" special. Not to mention, she traded in her cute pixie cut for a bleach blonde wig that made her look like the Bride of Frankenstein.Sorry Pam, it's time to step back into the 21st century again!And, Paz de la Huerta landed on our worst dressed list for wearing »

The term "acquired taste" was made for movies like Nurse. It brazenly wears its exploitation status on its sleeve, daring critics to condemn it and then laughing in their faces when they do. It's not overtly camp -- the wit is too sly and the jokes too subtle for that -- but it knows exactly what it is, and that knowledge serves it extremely well. Naturally any movie about a homicidal nurse who seduces philandering men before disposing of them in creatively violent ways won't tickle everyone's fancy. But for those attuned to such grindhouse depths, the treats on display are far too tasty to resist. Hit the jump for my full review. Chief among them is leading lady Paz de la Huerta, whose sole task here is to look good naked while spattered in blood, and who performs that duty (if no other) with style and panache. Her character »

Ever since Nurse Ratched terrorized Chief Bromden and Randle McMurphy in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, nurses have been slotted into two categories by Hollywood writers. There’s the battle axe, like Ratched and Sister Jude in American Horror Story: Asylum (to give a more recent example), and the naughty nurse, like Dakota Block in Planet Terror, Elle Driver in Kill Bill and any number of adult actresses. To my knowledge, however, no film has ever combined the two with such nutty results as Nurse 3D.
Paz de la Huerta proves an inspired choice to play Abby Russell, a devoted nurse by day who stalks through clubs at night, murdering men she seduces into cheating on their wives. When Abby goes out drinking one night with new nurse Danni (Katrina Bowden) and finds herself intensely attracted to the young woman, she spends the night with her and begins to pursue her romantically. »

Fear can be a strange thing. It can pop up at unexpected moments, and for unexplainable reasons. While some people can have irrational fears of things like clowns and spiders, there are a select few who fear places meant to be a safe haven for people in their time of need. A place that always seems to garner a mixed feeling of either dread or serenity is a hospital. They’re big buildings full of many individuals, and yet they always feel so empty. It could be the dull colors, the odd silence, or the cold that drifts down its many dark hallways that makes one uneasy. Or maybe it’s the aroma of rubbing alcohol and latex that triggers an unpleasant past experience for a person. All of these things are enough to make one think of a horror movie, because they are the perfect setting for disastrous events. »

No. Your eyes do not deceive you. There's already another edition of Dinner for Fiends. This is part of our effort to do them a bit shorter in length and on a more frequent basis. Though I am missing the "It's been so long since we last did a Dff that..." jokes. That being said, over an hour of auditory goodness awaits. Feast.
On this menu you’ll mostly hear from me, Matt, Buz, and Andrew (Foy was unable to join us due to needed work at master control) as we spend most of the time discussing “True Detective," the finer points of Nurse along with its star - Paz De La Huerta's commanding vagina, and little known flicks that Need a Blu-ray release badly.

Available now on VOD is Douglas Aarniokoski's sexually charged thriller 'Nurse 3D'. Lionsgate have been busy pushing the most alluring elements of the project to generate interest, mostly featuring Abby the lustful lead played by Paz De La Huerta ('Boardwalk Empire') in the movie. However, another indisputable unique selling point for the project which seems to have been overlooked is the inclusion of '30 Rock' hottie Katrina Bowden (below). And more importantly the sight of the actress carrying out some tasteful nudity shower time. Bowden has been stretching her genre muscles these past years years including comedy horror's 'Tucker and Dale vs. Evil', 'Scary Movie 5' and 'Piranha 3Dd'. Check out the talked about shower scene below and make sure you check out 'Nurse 3D' on VOD now. »
Everything about Nurse 3D screams genuinely bonkers genre work, from Paz De La Huerta’s sensual modeling on the theatrical poster to the blood-soaked production stills released months ago, but absolutely nothing prepared me for Douglas Aarniokoski’s fun-filled look into the murderous life of a medical professional. Jam packed with limitless debauchery, gratuitous Tna, wacky narration, and splattery slayings showcasing enough blood to fill ten donor banks, not once are we given a movie that takes itself too seriously, and not once is there a lull in Paz De La Huerta’s consistently entertaining portrayal of a sultry psychopath apparently protesting panties. Nurse 3D succeeds as an erotic exploitation flick about cheating bastards and endearing character work – but it’s the explosive genre insanity that keeps our eyes glued to the screen.

In this month's Playboy, model-actress Paz de la Huerta can be seen posing tastefully nude, but in the dreary slasher film Nurse, she's not just nude, she's naked (in a Hustler way), and all the less compelling for it.
She's Nurse Abby, who uses her body to lure married men into bed, only to murder them as punishment for their infidelity. In between killings, Abby drugs and then beds Danni (Katrina Bowden), a young nurse whose morning-after dismay prompts Abby to begin framing her for the murders.
Nurse, which includes, weirdly, a one-minute cameo by Kathleen Turner, is B-movie trash, a fact director Doug Aarniokoski and co-writer David Lowery never truly embrace, despite a finale drenched in blood and filled with knives flying at the »
Nurse 3D hits theaters and VOD today, and while it certainly isn’t a movie for everyone, fans of exploitation will love it. Paz de la Huerta plays Abby, a dedicated nurse by day, sexual predator by night. After a night of partying with her good-girl mentee Danni, Abby’s lust and attention turns from murdering cheating husbands to getting Danni back in bed. And she will kill anyone who gets in her way.
We spoke to director Doug Aarniokoski about exploitation, being in on the joke, and of course, all the sex and nudity.
This movie has been on the shelf for a number of years, hasn’t it?
Yes, it has. It’s a weird thing with this movie. The short answer is yes. We shot the movie, and when we had finished, Summit and Lionsgate hard merged companies, and it became one of those situations where Lionsgate »

A lurid B-movie horror thriller that seems mainly designed to fulfill its comely star Paz de la Huerta's exhibitionist tendencies, Nurse 3D might have the inadvertent effect of increasing the number of male hospital patients under the mistaken belief that today's nurses' uniforms seem designed for strip clubs. It's the sort of unabashedly prurient and gruesomely violent programmer that would have been right at home as the bottom half of a double bill in one of the grindhouses on the old 42nd Street. Speaking of bottom halves, you get to see that and a lot more of the film's

If you've seen any of the marketing materials for the gleefully insane new horror movie Nurse 3D, then you probably know what you're in for: weird sex, graphic violence, and several familiar actors running through familiar motions before ending up gored on a rock or beheaded with a bone-saw. This is nothing resembling a deep, intellectual, or insightful horror flick. Nurse 3D is, however, quite a bit of good, gruesome fun if you enjoy "body count" horror combined with a basic but serviceable plot yanked straight out of Single White Female.
Paz de la Huerta plays a psychotic nurse who does fine work during the day, but kills philandering men at night. Given the gal's sinful body and amorous attitude, she doesn't have much trouble finding victims. But bloodthirsty Abby's activities are interrupted with the arrival of an adorable new nurse (Katrina Bowden), which kicks off a standard (but never »
