"You should bathe more often. Your fingernails are filthy."

True monsters aren't born, they're made - and Nurse Ratched was made in a psychiatric hospital after the second World War.

In 1947, Mildred Ratched arrives to a North Carolina hospital looking for work. Presenting as the perfect image of what a dedicated nurse should be, she soon begins to infiltrate the mental health care system and those within it, revealing an evil and glowering darkness just waiting to escape.

Starring Sarah Paulson, Ratched is a new drama thriller from the creator of American Horror Story, Ryan Murphy.

Detailing the cruel and unnerving origin story of one of film's most iconic characters, the series will delve deep into the world of early psychiatric care - warts and all.

Just think AHS: Asylum part two. It's pretty much the same gig.

Murphy's latest series is inspired by the unforgettable character of Nurse Ratched in One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest.

The show stars Paulson as the title character as well as Sex and the City's Cynthia Nixon, Sharon Stone, Judy Davis, and Finn Wittrock among others.
