Short Film: Nightingale

In the case of this 2020 short (14-minute) film by Jasper de Bruin, Nightingale refers to a member of the nursing profession. In this case Julia (Nina Fokker) who works the graveyard shift in a nursing home.

As we follow Julia she seems particularly dedicated, patiently dabbing an elderly patient’s lips before helping her drink. There also seems to be something odd going on, as though she is being stalked.

Of course, being here, it involves a vampire and not too much of a spoiler to suggest that being the nurse working the graveyard shift amongst ill geriatric patients is a great cover and opportunity for a vampire. However, if Julia is the vampire, who might it be stalking her?
