Movie Info

Poverty-row horror auteur Al Adamson jumped on the Exorcist bandwagon with this twisted demon-possession exploiter. The thin plot involves a demented professor of the occult, whose soul jumps into the curvaceous body of Nurse Sherri (Jill Jacobson) shortly before he dies on the operating table. The possessed lady in white then begins stalking, seducing and decimating members of the cast with gory abandon -- even menacing her boyfriend with a pair of meat cleavers -- until her roommates exhume and destroy the evil professor's corpse, snapping her out of his spell. Fans of the TV series One Step Beyond may recognize snippets of the show's theme, particularly during the sleazy scene where the evil ghost has his way with the terrified Sherri. Originally titled Nurse Sherri; also available on video under a plethora of alternate titles, including Hospital of Terror, Killer's Curse and Hands of Death.more

While I'd be the first to admit that the words "possessed killer nurse" could form the basis for a damn fine screenplay, this most definitely is not it.

Audience Reviews for Beyond the Living

Oh October, that wonderful time of year! Around Halloween, where we are all allowed to be part of the magic that is the horror genre.
The possession of Nurse Sherri, is not one of those movies. Although, being a nurse, I got a kick out of this film.
Nurse Sherri is the tale of a buxom, barely kept in her dress nurse. She becomes cursed with the soul of a man that was into evil thaumaturgy. She then spends the rest of the movie, using her sex appeal to seduce and kill people around her.
There are moments in this film, you have to ask yourself are you watching a B rate horror, or a B rate porno. Jill Jacobson was a looker back then, but that didn't do much to mask the incredibly bad acting and story line. Maybe Al Adamson was trying to hypnotize the audience. Look at the boobs, and forget about those annoying plot holes...
The Possession of Nurse Sherri is definitely good for a laugh, if nothing else. It is oozing with perfectly aged 1978 Cheddar !
