There are a few movies that use the Richard Speck killings as the basis for their plots. This one is probably one of the more disturbing ones. It's only about a half hour into the film before our lonely, deranged Vietnam vet character is breaking into a nurses dormitory to torture and kill a bunch of young ladies. From there on out it's a long series of sexual degradations, attempted rape, forced lesbianism and ultimately murder. You do get exactly what the title promises, naked nurses and a massacre and that's about it. It sort of plays out like a completely misogynistic, totally bleak version of TAXI DRIVER except Scorsese's film was an artistic meditation on loneliness whereas this seems to be more of a portrait of full-blown insanity and works solely as a shock film. While it does offer enough characterization to make it watchable I'm not sure if there's much of a point to it all.
