Nurse 3D is a campy, trashy but oddly entertaining new release from director Douglas Aarniokoski starring Paz de la Huerta as Abigail Russel a psychotic, murderous nurse with a passion for blood and mayhem. The HNR grue-crew review the gory, R-Rated slasher-fest.
Thomas continues the theme with the Top 5 of the Week bringing his Top 5 Homicidal Women in Horror featuring films like Fatal Attraction, The Devil’s Rejects and the underrated, under-appreciated Orphan.
Co-hosts Doc Rotten, Santos (The Black Saint) Ellin Jr., Dave Dreher and Thomas Mariani also tackle the “What You Have Been Watching” segment for this week discussing the hit animated film, The Lego Movie. Dave closes the show with the Horror News of the Week with updates on The Walking Dead, Bates Motel and Zombeavers. Wait. What? Zombeavers? Oh, yeah!
00:02:22 – Nurse 3D
Can the HNR crew really take Nurse 3D seriously? Is it the Showgirls of horror? High camp or pure garbage? The grew crew are here to answers those questions and much, much more. Bwah-hah-hah. Nurse 3D is a goofy, satirical horror slasher film with an outrageous (and somewhat frustrating) lead performance from its uber-hot star, Paz de la Huerta.

Horror is terrorizing TV across the dials, Dave spotlights the full trailer for season 2 of Bates Motel. Then Doc cannot believe his ears, there is a movie called Zombeavers? Woot!
