Evil has a beautiful face.
A deeply disturbing true story
"The Ken and Barbie Killers"
Winter - 1990. The most notorious serial killers in the history of Canada begin their psychological dance with death and depravity as an entire country is held captive in fear.
In stunningly acclaimed performances, Laura Prepon ("That 70's Show", "Slackers", "Come Early Morning") and Misha Collins (TV's "24", "NCSI") breathe perverse life into their real life counterparts, Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka, dubbed by an anxious press the "Ken and Barbie Killers". As the gruesome events unfold, and lovely young girls disappear, the utter lack of remorse from Paul coupled with his quirky charisma paint a delusional world of normalcy for Karla.
Police frantically search for and eventually put an end to the couple's horrific killing spree and their trial captivates the entire nation, setting off waves of controversy surrounding the brutal killings.
In the end, this gripping, tension-packed film will haunt you forever left to ponder the psyches of two individuals in a tragically demented relationship...because it's true.
"Karla boasts incredibly impressive performances from the leads, and Laura Prepon does a stand-up job as the eponymous character, effectively casting aside her 70s Show persona more than any of the other sitcom cast members have managed over the years since the show's cancellation.
Prepon manages to stay stellar throughout the film, giving a very restrained, natural performance as a woman who would do anything for her man.
Actor Misha Collins is equally brilliant as Paul Bernardo. He embodies the bi-polar aspect of Bernardo's character so believably as to be frightening. Bernardo's transformation from sex fetishist to wife beater to rapist happens gradually and naturally, up to a point where he stops being a sexually frustrated filmmaker and becomes pure evil. All of which seems incredibly accurate, thanks entirely to Collins' performance." -- BeyondHollywood.com
"That '70s Show star Laura Prepon is downright chilling in her portrayal of Karla Homolka. This movie is profound on many levels and its jarring look at anti-social behavior is right up there with Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, Kids and Ken Park." -- phillyburbs.com
