Black Christmas 2006 always makes me feel festive and a bit sick (flesh cookies).
If Paz de la Huerta had even a smidgeon of acting ability, Nurse 3D probably wouldn't work at all. It's basically a mix of American Mary and Single White Female, with the title character going around killing every man in the vicinity like the former and becoming dangerously obsessed with a female pal like the latter. On paper, that sounds like a recipe for a perfectly rote slasher/thriller that you'd forget about within moments of the film's conclusion, but since even merely saying a character's name proves to be an insurmountable task for Paz, it takes on this bizarre, nearly alien tone that, intentionally or not, turns the film into a trashy comic delight.
Ahh I loved this movie. One of the best I've seen during my mom's classic "watch horror movies" nights. Finding one that isn't objectively shit is always a delight.I haven't seen much chatter about it in this thread but I feel like literally every one of you horror girlies would love Nurse 3D. Paz de la Huerta's acting choices are the highest level of camp. I've seen it four times over the years and it still manages to baffle and bewilder.

Just this one, it's bonkers but fun. The virtue signalling recent one hit every bum note. The film itself felt offensive to the original.and the 2006 one.

Totally agree. The original is a masterpiece. It has tons of atmosphere. I was disappointed in the 2006 originally but have since come to enjoy it for it's bold, over the top trash that it is. The recent one has only made me enjoy the 2006 one more.It's not a patch on the original.
When we get a kick out of being patronized (2019).When are we, as the horror movie subthread, finally going to admit there are no bad Black Christmas entries?
If they had just titled 2019 something else, I think I would have genuinely enjoyed it (or if they’d actually committed to an R rating). It’s not a bad movie, but it just doesn’t compare to the earlier two.When are we, as the horror movie subthread, finally going to admit there are no bad Black Christmas entries?
