Los Angeles CityBeat

There is nothing whatever special here, but it adequately achieves its modest ambitions.

Staci Layne Wilson

Tamara is a mostly enjoyable horror romp and well worth a look if you're into supernatural thrills, witchy women and revenge of the nerds.

A "Buffy episode without any of the usual cast.

As relatively stylish on the surface as it is resoundingly familiar beneath, Tamara should prove more than serviceable enough for the hardcore horror fans.

... a well crafted, solid little film that will thrill you, chill you, and at times make your skin crawl.

You know things aren't going well when it gets tedious watching a teen girl strut around in short shorts and a loose top and you're waiting for her to use the ax and get it over with

One Guy's Opinion

A really dumb, derivative rip-off, slovenly constructed and played with the sort of ludicrous earnestness that just misses being bad enough to qualify as high camp.

Este aspirante a Carrie, a Estranha segue todas as convenções do gênero a ponto de se tornar previsível já aos 5 minutos de projeção, e o elenco de canastrões só piora a experiência.

There are few words to describe the awfulness of this movie, but let's give it the old college try: dismal, depressing, embarrassing and utterly lacking in any artistic or social worth.

By now, we all know what you did last summer and have had our ticket punched at our final destination. And nerdy girls have been turning hot and wreaking revenge on their nemeses at least since ZZ Top's heyday.

An entry into the cycle of avenging teen-girl pictures, in which the filmmakers try gamely to put a unique spin on familiar material, but eventually fall back on by-the-numbers tropes.

Tamara thinks it's a supernatural tale, but really it's just another Fatal Attraction retread with a supernatural twist, and a climax that just screams: sequel. Don't hold your breath.
