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 »

Directed by Douglas Aarniokoski (The Day), Nurse 3D stars de la Huerta, Katrina Bowden, Corbin Bleu, and Judd Nelson in a scintillating horror film about a nurse with a secret double life as a murderous vixen.

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. »

Here's some great news for fans of horror comedy. Actors Alan Tudyk and Tyler Labine have revealed that the producers are currently looking to get started on a sequel to their 2010 classic Tucker & Dale Vs Evil. It's been on the cards ever since the first film was released and the sooner it arrives the better. While we await further news, let's take a look back at the first movie; Twenty years on from the day of the Memorial Day Massacre a group of college kids venture out into the woods for a camping vacation, only for one of them to get kidnapped by a pair of murderous hillbillies intent on killing everything in their path. So far so unoriginal. Only, this time, the hillbillies in question are Tucker (Alan Tudyk) and Dale (Tyler Labine), two best friends taking a break at their dilapidated mountain house. When their peace is disturbed »
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. »

Sylvester Stallone’s famous movie line, “I ain’t no bum,” could apply to his rockin’ new musical Rocky on Broadway. It’s no tanker either. Opening night drew a celebrity crowded that flocked to an after-party to celebrate what looks like a sure crowd pleaser. Actress Katrina Bowden, actress Margo Seibert, actors Terence Archie and Andy Karl, Director James Cameron, Talking Heads frontman David Byrne, Whoopi Goldberg, Wesley Snipes and designer Ralph Lauren were all spotted in the crowd.

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. »
According to Variety, 30 Rock's Katrina Bowden has landed the female lead across from Ed Burns on TNT's period cop drama pilot Public Morals. We're glad Bowden has finally landed herself a juicy role, though the character description for her part would undoubtedly make Liz Lemon's ocular muscles spasm and eject her eyeballs: "a seemingly sweet and innocent prostitute with street smart edge." For the love of all that is holy, please let Ed Burns's character be named Steven Morals and bring this thing home. Let life imitate the art that was 30 Rock. »
- Halle Kiefer
The pilot is set in 1967 in New York City’s Public Morals Division, where cops walk the line between morality and criminality as the temptations that comes from dealing with all kinds of vices can get the better of them.
Bowden will play a seemingly sweet and innocent prostitute with street smart edge.
Bowden is repped by UTA and Management 360.

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 »
