The day has come -- the trailer for 'Nurse 3D,' the totally bonkers movie starring Paz de la Huerta as a sexy, psychotic, bloodthirsty nurse has finally arrived and now we know what all those weird concept posters are all about ... and you know what? It's even more baffling than we could have thought. De la Huerta, formerly of HBO's 'Boardwalk Empire,' stars with Katrina Bowden (whom you know best as the ditzy Cerie of '30 Rock) in this riff on 'Single White Female,' but, you know, with nurses.
Over the past couple of years [Ed. note: the film wrapped production over two years ago and has been sitting on the shelf at Lionsgate ever since], we've seen some teaser posters for 'Nurse 3D,' and we weren't quite sure what to expect -- Paz de la Huerta, in various states of undress, with latex, as a sexy nurse, with blood ... it could be totally out there. Or it was just a really smart marketing gimmick. Turns out, it's the latter.
The trailer for 'Nurse 3D' fails to deliver, unfortunately, and appears to be just another 'Single White Female' knock-off, with a lazy, armchair feminist twist -- Paz de la Huerta's nurse character stalks nightclubs looking for men to kill when she's not busy being obsessed with her pretty blonde roommate. The action looks boring, the blood looks surprisingly bloodless, and we're not even sure why it's in 3D.
But to up the WTF factor, for whatever reason, Kathleen Turner and Judd Nelson are in this movie, so at the very least, that should offer some level of entertainment for those of you born before 1990.
Yawn. The official synopsis:
Paz de la Huerta (HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire”) turns up the body heat in this wickedly entertaining story of a fatal attraction. By day, nurse Abby Russell (de la Huerta) lovingly attends to the patients at All Saints Memorial Hospital; by night, Abby prowls nightclubs, luring unfaithful men into dangerous liaisons. After Danni, a young, sensitive nurse, joins the hospital staff, Abby pursues her friendship. But when the friendship turns to obsession, Danni spurns Abby, unleashing Abby’s fury and a rampage of terror.
'Nurse 3D' hits theaters on February 7, 2014.
