About Sean S. Cunningham
The Nurse with the Purple Hair is a labor of love from world famous horror director, Sean S. Cunningham. His personal experiences and interaction with the people in this movie create an unexpectedly touching and inspiring story.
The film highlights how families can learn to accept death with compassion, wisdom, and grace. It’s impossible to watch this movie without feeling deeply grateful to these wonderful caring people as we watch them do their jobs with extraordinary kindness and love.
Sean Cunningham, one of today’s most successful independent filmmakers, is best known for FRIDAY THE 13TH (1980), the low-budget movie that created a series of twelve sequels released all around the world. It remains one of the most popular horror films in history, and is considered one of the most successful media franchises in America. He revolutionized the content and production of independent motion pictures as both provocateur and horror great. He was an executive producer on the hit remakes of FRIDAY THE 13TH and LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT. Cunningham also produced THE HORROR SHOW, MY BOYFRIEND’S BACK, JASON GOES TO HELL, JASON X, and the tremendously successful FREDDY VS. JASON.
When Sean met Michelle at Fan Expo in Toronto, he was captivated by her stories about hospice. Their conversation led to this documentary. Says Sean: “I was focusing on movie deaths and Michelle was focusing on real death. She said it didn’t have to be scary. She wasn’t grim or morbid. In fact, she has a sense of fun about her, which I never would’ve imagined. And things that she’s told me have changed my life.”
This movie is a love story between the filmmaker and his subject. Watching it left me full of hope, inspiration and love.
