Editorial Reviews

Haunted by memories of his ex-girlfriend Alice, a heartbroken Billy returns home to Northern Virginia seeking solace from old friends. But what he finds is more disconcerting than comforting: his best friend Stanley has become mysterious and withdrawn from those around him. Billy attempts to find out what is going on, and as he probe Stanley's recent activities, his friend s behavior seems increasingly bizarre and frightening. The discovery of blood-stained evidence among Stanley's possessions pulls him deeper into the nightmare and eventually leads to a violent confrontation that not everyone will survive.

After breaking up with thier girlfriends of five years, two friends handle it differently. After moving back to his hometown Billy (Stahl) learns that his girlfriend no longer wants a long distance relationship. He is not handling it well and goes to friend Stan (Jackson) for help coping. Stan is not handling his break up well either and soon his girlfriend winds up missing. This movie more then anything is a little disturbing, mainly for the fact that this is very believable and I'm sure at least part of this has happend to someone before. I don't want to give to much away but before you watch know that this is not a horror movie like the preview makes it seem like, but a very disturbing look at how an unstable person handles a break-up. I give it a B-.

Would I watch again? - Not sure, I think I would but it may not have the same effect.

Written and directed by James Hausler, Kalamity claims its spot as an intriguing psychological thriller. Ripped to the bone by heartbreaking loss, Kalamity grasps Billy and Stan as its true victims. This film takes a different perspective since, for once, we hear from the men, witness their emotional bleed, and follow the horror of the `subconscious rip'. The movie starts out with a haunting, compelling, and strikingly wise voice-over, which pulls the audience into the film.

Grounded by Hollywood professionals Robert Forester and Nick Stahl who portrays the story's hero, Billy, Hausler's brilliant choice of Jonathan Jackson as the aggressive, uber-disturbed best friend, Stan, carries the suspenseful tone. Although Billy has problems of his own, he recognizes almost immediately that his good friend has some profound mental imbalance.

The dialogue is real; it reflects the way real people feel and talk. Billy's reflection on his own lost love, Alice, speaks to that part in all of us who yearn for that lost love of our own - reliving snippets of moments in our own memories as Billy randomly does with Alice throughout the film.

I saw this in the theater, and watched on demand repeatedly, each time unpeeling another layer of Hausler's tightly scripted, haunting film.

So many films fail in telling a coherent and plausible story. Up to the point when the the two friends go out to the spot where Stanley killed his girlfriend I was held by this film. But how did they know where the body was? This, added to the room mate's refusal to report Stanley's assault on him, started me feeling exasperated. What kind of people are these? And then the two friends casually return to Stanley's home.They just found a dead girl's body; they believe that their wacko buddy killed her, but they don't go to the police; they go back to his place. Ho hum. An uneventful walk in the woods. Pllease! None of this is believable. It is the reaction and lack of responsible action of idiots. I don't like movies about clueless people.

I was looking for a good thriller when I clicked play, but what I got was a story that seemed to come from Fantasy Island. There were two parts of this movie that I found to be believable. One was the fact that a love that goes sour and ends in a tragedy caused by mental instability is plausable and the other was when Billy (Stahl) wanted to kill Stanley (Jackson) after Stan informs him of why he went to Ohio. The story centers around three best friends Stahl, Jackson and Chris( Clark) with Jackson and Stahl reeling from fresh breakups from their 5 year relationships with Ashley (Tal) and Alice (Garrett). Stanley's roomate Chris is to shy and has not found a love intrest and acts as a sounding board and shoulder for Stan and Billy. I don't want to delve into the story to deeply so as not to spoil things for those of you who want to watch this movie, but I will try to explain my issues which are many with this movie. The actions taken by Stahl and Chris's characters was perposterous given the gravity of the suspected and later confirmed actions taken by Stan. I can't tell you the particulars of just how ridiculous they are, but by doing so I will give away to much of this Ill concived story. The writer/director Hausler seemed to miss many obvious human responses to tragic events and police procedures that would have been given top priority in the disappearance and just some plain common sense. He does get some of the emotions and dialogue correct. but its not enough to elevate his story to a palpable level. The acting is ok, but nothing that would win honorable mention. The movie was written for a young adult audience and does not live up to a thriller or a drama, but rather it test ones ability to see the movie through to the end.Read more ›

Okay, there are understated movies and, in this case, movies with no statement to make at all. As much as I am a fan of Nick Stahl, which is why I sat through this, the story was so transparent and the direction so lacking as to make this movie quite lame.
