Tamara fails to approximate the lascivious sadism or the campy hysteria of its forefathers.

After a sly middle, the third act is just slasher-flick clichés; worse, it largely keeps Tamara offscreen. Villainy shouldn't be outsourced.

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.

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.

A low-budget horror film with even lower ambitions, Tamara is a movie of few innovations but one genuine, if unintentional, surprise.

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.

This indie death-feast, directed by Jeremy Haft and penned by Jeffrey Reddick (co-writer of Final Destination), was initially slated to debut on video. Watching it, you'll wonder why the distributor changed its plans.

Surely independent horror has more to offer than this.

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.

A mediocre little thriller that might have promised cheap fun on Blockbuster's direct-to-DVD shelf is instead destined to die a quick death on the big screen.

Repetitive and uninspired, it panders to the lowest expectations of horror buffs and squanders the efforts of a competent cast.

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.

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.
