The story of Karla Homolka is interesting and terrible. This movie at least gets terrible right. Laura Prepon dyes her hair blonde and plays Canadian serial killer Karla Homolka. Some guy who has been on Supernatural lot plays Paul, her husband. They kidnap and rape women. They videotape it. Then they murder their victims. It's as unpleasant as it sound. This movie feels like a bad Life flick. While it doesn't directly excuse Karla's role in kidnappings, rapes, and murders, it does seriously try to convince us that Paul was brutalizing her and she only went along with it because he made her, assertion that Paul disputes. The movie glosses over how terrible these crimes As Canadian and Catharine residents at the time of these crimes, it's my moral obligation to hate this film. Luckily, film Is do so poorly, and has such a skew take on events, that hating it is easy. Film wants to have it two ways. The whole film tells the story of Karla as another one of Paul Bernardo's victims, but then has some info at the end saying how guilty she probably is, most likely added after producers realize they are actually making a pro-Karla Homolka movie. And I don't mind when filmmakers humanise real life Killers. In fact, I usually like it more when these monsters in society are on show as they watch about 20 minutes and quit bc I felt nauseous knowing what director enjoyed filming scenes too much, ex. Calling rape scenes hot, so yeah never gonna finish it. I'm sure Laura, Misha, and other actors do OK job, but this project shouldn't have happened because of the writing, director, and so many othe bts things half star to Misha, Laura, and other actresses for being professional even though director was creepy asshole base on True story of Canadian serial killer couple Paul Bernardo & Karla Homolka. Crimes committed by this couple horrified Canadians & caused public outcry when Karla was ultimately released after serving only 12 years in prison for murdering three teenage girls, including her own sister. Karla is tough watch for a few reasons. One is based on actual events & has many scenes of torture & rape. Acting can be somewhat bad, particularly in my opinion, by Misha Collins, who portrays the serial rapist & later serial killer Paul Bernardo. Laura Prepon, who is best known as Donna from that 70s show & for her role in Netflix series Orange Is New Black, I felt decent enough as I dont know if Ive ever seen a movie contradict itself so completely in its final moments. If, like me, you were not familiar with Kara Homolka before seeing this first time, then you might buy into movies attempt to sympathize with her and make her seem like just another of Paul Bernardos victims.

Karla (2006) Film Review

Director Joel Benders ' disquieting psychological drama stars Misha Collins as Paul Bernardo and Laura Prepon as Karla Homolka, notorious husband-and-Wife team who abduct, sexually abuses and kills three young women. Unfolding from Karlas point of view, film based on a true story explores whether she was a willing accomplice to crimes or merely a victim of Paul's influence. The supporting cast includes Tess Harper. Write by: Joe Bender and Manette Beth Rosen directed by: Joe Bender Starring: Misha Collins, Alex Boyd, Fiona Manners, Shawn Hoffman, Cherilyn Hayres, Adam Lieberman and Laura Prepon hell-o, True Crime enthusiasts and those that like your Horror to be a little closer to home. Here is another case I have followed since it unfolded and they made a very controversial film about the whole ordeal. The Film was so Disturbing that Canada banned it in several places throughout because of how close it hit to their home Practically in their own backyard. Victims ' families were outraged that a film like this would even be attempted to be make. As always, someone has to tell a story sometimes. It happens with best of them Ed Gein, Jeffrey Dahmer, Ted Bundy, Gary Ridgeway, Richard Remirez, Zodiac Killer, Henry Lee Lucas and Otis Tool, Kenneth Bianchi, John Wayne Gacy, Aileen Wournos and even a group of teenagers from Florida that off bullying neighbor among countless others, have been immortalized through Film. It may be sad, but one thing is for certain It all too true. Some films such as Night Stalker bend truth for entertainment sake. Fuck That. This is one that sticks to the story, which I think you should. Maybe you remember them Ken and Barbie Killers, Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka. They were given this name by the media because of their appearance. This is their story, told through the eyes, mouth and the memory of Karla. Paul was known as Scarlsbrough Rapist before he and his girlfriend, Karla kidnap, sexually assault, video tap and killed women in Canada. Karlas baby sister, Tammy, was also the victim of her newly wed killing spree. Karla is played by Laura Prepon and she does Killer job. It is some of the best acting I have seen her do and above plenty of others as well. Just a bit of trivia before I go on. For those fans of that 70s show, there were some episodes where Laura had blond hair. That because she was filming this movie. She could not keep changing her hair color, so that 70s show had to write her hair into the script somehow. Although the film has received many negative comments and issued ban, there were also many words of praise as well. It was official selection in FOUR different Film Festivals and Laura's acting is acclaimed by many as the best that she has ever done. The film has been called disturbing, yet compelling and downright chilling. I couldnt agree more.
