Pretty compelling revenge thriller.
8 October 2019 | by RatedVforVinnySee all my reviews

The story has been done before (of course) but 'The Nurse' without being entirely original hits a few high notes and certainly keeps you gripped into the watchable, yet predictable series of events. Lisa Zane is fantastic as the black widow, typed nurse, out for the complete revenge.
