Loosely based on the notorious Richard Speck murders, this is the grim tale of a disturbed Vietnam vet returning home via Belfast, who invades a house shared by eight nurses and proceeds to terrorize and murder them. Written by
Now, this might have been a lot more interesting with actual Irish girls playing the parts of the nurses.
As it is, it is supposed the most accurate movie inspired by Richard Speck, the Chicago murderer. In this case, the events are set in Belfast during the height of the conflict there. The rapist murderer is an American returning from Vietnam and waiting to get home. This is no spoiler as the Speck story is well known.
It's hard to believe that the girls just sat there and waited for their deaths. They could have done something. Maybe fear overcame them.
War, family problems, infidelity; all factors that produce these creatures.
