4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining Thai Horror August 28, 2008
Format:DVD
Sick Nurses is a story about a neglected hospital and 7 young nurses and a doctor who work there. It turns out the nurses and doctor are selling body parts of their dead patients on the black market. Soon one of the nurses threatens to blow the whistle and ends up murdered. The ghost of the woman then comes back and uses the nurses and doctors obsessions and fears to murder them with to exact revenge. The ghost is also forcing them to kill eachother to get revenge for her murder. The ghost can cause hallucinations, also manipulate their will.

What I really loved about this movie is the way it was directed. The use of colors is exquisite. The way a bar bell floats in the air, the way the fan winds blow, the way the rain drips on the windows, and the way a clock pours blood will strike you as something new. Very creative, It is beautifully directed.

This received lower ratings on some websites, Why? I don't know. It's a lot better than most of the Asian horror movies out today.

There were some very strange killings in this. Very inventive and unlike anything you most likely have ever seen.

Would I call it scary? Not really. Would I call it unique? Yes. It's a unique ghost story with inventive killings and haunts. Entertaining, Good looking actors, Great Use of Colors and a spooky yet slightly disturbing ghost story. Recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Viewer Beware May 4, 2008
By Robert
Format:DVD
I so rarely give one or five stars, but this movie really earned it. I struggled to finish it. The plot is reasonable enough. A nurse is murdered by a doctor and other nurses after threatening to reveal they were selling body parts from the deceased. When her own body parts are not claimed, she begins exacting revenge from those who killed her. Unfortunately, the tale is poorly executed, rambling from one unconnected scene to the next, with several hauntings leaving you to believe a nurse is dead, when her final moments are actually shown a half hour later. There are a few gory moments, but they often lack context or appear hurried. There is a feeling that the movie is a collection of random scenes, edited later to fit the plot. The cast of Asian nurses is an attractive one, but they present themselves like eye candy in a campy low budget American flick. The ghost, if you will, reminds one of the standard creepy Asian girl, with dark hair partially covering one eye, moving creepily. Unfortunately, this one is covered with dark grease paint, and has a habit of posing like a soap opera star waiting for the cheating boyfriend. This is particularly interesting because the ghost in the early part of the film is more vague and indistinct than what she becomes later in the second half. Just another example of a film that lacks any real coherence. It's as if it were directed by several different people, or at the very least, a few different personalities. There is a bit of a twist at the end, but it is by no means an adequate payoff for what you must suffer through to get there.

After killing one of their own, a group of organ-stealing nurses pay the consequences. This is quite possibly the most entertaining Thai horror film ever made. The characters are hyperbolized to the point where they are intrinsically interesting to watch (not to mention the fact that all of them are gorgeous Thai girls in scantily clad nurse uniforms) and they also add an element of black humor. Even the ghost herself shatters genre cliches with her obvious sadism and enjoyment in reaping vengeance. The main attractions, however, are the spectacular death scenes that arrive during the latter half. These are highly imaginative with impressive quantities of blood, but are not very disturbing because they're so much fun to watch. The nurse named Nook is one tough bitch who won't go down without a fight, and the one-on-one duel to the death between her and the ghost is an instant classic. There are one or two scenes with poor CGI, but this is an extremely inventive horror film with frenetic pacing and excellent camerawork and lighting. This is a horror film that's meant to be fun first and foremost - and it works.

The other reviewers here seem to gloss over the fact that the ghost in this movie is NOT the cliched stereotype that pervades some of the Japanese and South Korean horror releases. After watching over 200 East Asian horror movies, I can tell you with 100% certainty that the ghost in Sick Nurses is instead a SATIRE of Japanese horror because she is unequivocally SADISTIC, reaping boatloads of pleasure with each and every kill. This is very different from the stereotype. The reviewers may be partially correct in pointing out that the antagonist is a woman ghost, but were completely wrong in asserting that the character is a cliche.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some might hate it but others will love it.... May 4, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I was really surpised that I ended up liking this movie as much as I did. The film starts out rather campy and is often kind of cheesy as others have stated. There is a clear and obvious rip-off of The Grudge with a ghostly woman with long black hair. And I wonder why they decided to do such a stupid thing, because they is a lot more originality in this movie that shows that the director and writer really know how to make a solidly atmospheric horror movie, so why try to spoil the fun by doing such a cheap rip-off of other movies? None the less there are some beautiful and visually stunning moments that reminded me of the work of Argento, but actually done even better. It takes a little time for the blood and gore to come into the mix but when it does its truly a very bloody event. Theres a serious amount of blood and gore and its all done very well. Many moments of the movie are absolutely astonishing and memorable. Despite the camp, despite the rip-offs, this movie has some haunting and unforgettable moments. Also if your a fan of Takashi Miike youll get all the wierdness and all the blood and gore you would expect in his movies. In short I am surpsied to say the least that I am considering this one of the best horror movies that I have seen in more than 20 years, and I have seen everything under the sun. The film often truly remarkable and chilling. While far from original or perfect something about the film seems special.
