Hospital Harlots

ImageSick Nurses (Magnolia)
This absurdist entry in the horror genre makes no bones about its implausibility as it lets its characters drop like bloodied flies throughout a zippy 80-minute running time. The lamebrained plot centers on a doctor and the sexy nurses he’s shtupping; the newest staff nurse doesn’t want to be part of their harem, so after she dies suspiciously, her spirit returns to wreak vengeance on the rest. If you’re in the right mood for such lunacy, there’s a certain mindless fun to be had, especially in the increasingly ludicrous if admittedly ingenious ways the spectre from beyond offs her victims.
