Who is Charles Cullen? The true story behind 'The Good Nurse' on Netflix

'The Good Nurse' is a Netflix movie based on the true story of a nurse and his grisly career as a hospital-sanctioned murderer, Charles Cullen.

The film premiered on Netflix on October 26.

The plot revolves around a healthcare system that enabled him to become possibly the most prolific serial killer in history.

The killer nurse moved between hospitals snuffing patients in Garden State and Pennsylvania before pleading guilty to murdering 29 people over 16 years.

That number is thought to be just a fraction of the real total. Cullen could be responsible for up to 400 deaths between 1988 and 2003.

Jessica Chastain plays Amy Loughren in the movie, a New Jersey nurse who helped police stop Charles Cullen.

Jessica Chastain is also a film producer with a net worth of $50 million in 2022.

Eddie Redmayne stars as Charles Cullen and he has a net worth of $15 million in 2022.
