Hell hath no fury like a nurse scorned in this gruesome but witty horror story from Thailand. Dr. Tah (Vichaya Jarujinda) is a charming but devious surgeon who has a profitable side business supplying black market dealers with fresh human organs for transplant. Dr. Tah's staff of alluring nurses help him find a steady source of victims, but one of his aides, Tahwan (Chol Wajananont), is shocked to find that her sister Nook is on the doctor's list of upcoming cases, and threatens to turn him in to the police. Dr. Tah puts Tahwan under the knife to keep her quiet, and she conveniently dies during surgery. But a few days later, as Dr. Tah is receiving an award for his work saving lives, the ghost of Tahwan begins stalking the halls of the hospital, and she seeks violent revenge against the doctor and her fellow nurses who failed to come to her rescue. Suay Laak Say (aka Sick Nurses) was directed by Thospol Siriwiwat and Piraphan Laoyont, who also helped write the screenplay. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

The lead doctor of the Thai treasure SICK NURSES looks like he might graduate from high school next year. The nurses under his care spend their time preening, playing "patty-cake" and binging/barfing to beat the band. The film's first moments plunge us into the naughty deed that gets our crew into big trouble, and the remainder of the movie is spent seeing that a kind of loony-tune justice is meted out to one and all.

The horny high-schooler turns out to be as fond of guys as of gals, and the hospital in which he labors is one of those that possesses no staff at all save him and his nurses--particularly at night or when bad things begin to happen. There are a few fun effects along the way, and lots of blood. But it is all so silly and intelligence-free that you can just lie back and giggle. Apichatpong Weerasethakul it ain't. Though I admit there were times during the film that I found myself wishing A.W. could steal a trick or two from this playbook. Its 80-minute length, for starters.
