Netflix is now the official home of the most terrifying true crime shows and documentaries in recent history. Following the unprecedented success of DAHMER - Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story and The Watcher, the streaming platform's latest true crime film The Good Nurse is based on the true story of Charles Cullen, a nurse who admitted to murdering between 30 and 40 terminally ill patients over a 16-year period.
He has since been arrested for his heinous crimes, and according to NJ.com, he could be the "most prolific serial killer in history," as investigators discovered he could have killed up to 400 victims.
Based on Charles Graeber's non-fiction book The Good Nurse: A True Story of Medicine, Madness, and Murder, the film stars Eddie Redmayne as Charles Cullen and Jessica Chastain as Amy Loughren, two ICU nurses who formed a strong friendship while sharing long nights at the hospital.
After several patients mysteriously die in similar ways, an investigation is launched, and with Charles as the prime suspect, Amy is forced to risk her life and the safety of her children in order to uncover the truth.
