Netflix Released Trailer of ‘The Good Nurse’ Starring Jessica Chastain 

It’s been a while since we have come across a thrilling serial killer biopic. In the past, we’ve been enamoured by The Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal and Zodiac.

The genre got a bit intense with Netflix’s Making a Murderer when everyone was glued to their screens and keeping tabs on the case of Steven Avery, who spent 18 years in prison for sexual assault before being exonerated by DNA evidence. I’m not alone.

Serial killer biopics have become a big hit in recent years. The popularity of these films seems to be driven by our obsession with true crime stories.

Serial killers are a staple of the entertainment industry. There’s no shortage of biopics about them, but the most popular ones tend to be the ones that take a more sympathetic approach. Keeping their gore department intact, Netflix is bringing another thrilling serial killer biopic “The Good Nurse”.

Coming from the BAFTA-nominated Danish director Tobias Lindholm who has delivered impeccable work in the past including Borgen, Mindhunter and The Hunt, the upcoming film has quite raised the anticipation for it. Here’s everything you need to know.
