Nurse 3D caused some ripples online a couple of years ago with its decidedly NSFW teaser poster, which promised a 2012 release. However, the film, about a deranged nurse (Paz de la Huerta) with a violent streak, has since largely disappeared from the radar -- until now, that is. Lionsgate has released the first trailer and has announced a release date of February 7, 2014. It will be available on demand and in limited theatrical release on the same day.

Not that it looks bad -- it could be an entertaining popcorn flick -- but nothing as "out there" as the posters make it seem.
