Product Description

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.

Written By:
Michael D.


"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." --

"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." --

"Beware a film that will keep you up at night." -- DIGITALJOURNAL.COM

"Disturbing, yet compelling...downright chilling" -- MCG's movie picks

"Prepon and Collins, bear a chilling resemblance to the couple once dubbed The Ken and Barbie killers." -- The Globe

Format: DVD
This was a very disturbing, yet, very engrossing movie. Real life crime stories intrique me and this was no exception. I thought the two main leads, Collins and Prepon were exceptionally good and it's a role certainly against type for Prepon. Perhaps there is too much sympathy for Karla in the movie, however, if some of the deleted scenes had been included, it may not have been the case in the finished product. This movie could have been explotive if the sex and rape scenes were more brutal, but, I commend all involved for leaving more to the immaginiation than the eyes. It's a movie you really want to follow almost word for word, frame by frame, as to not miss something that might give you a reason to understand the callousness and the brutality of the two principals in the case. I highly recommend this movie, but, it is disturbing, especially knowing it is based on a true story. Well done, well crafted, and well worth seeing.

"Karla" is a small, fairly low-budget film that rather quietly recounts the story of Karla Homolka, wife of serial rapist and murderer Paul Bernardo. Being somewhat familiar with their story, I anticipated it would translate well to film. For the most part, the film succeeds in providing a realistic portrayal of a battered wife, whose husband managed to maintain a semblance of normalcy and elude capture for a few years. The tone of the film is fairly understated, which seems to contrast somewhat with the story. These were some horrific, disturbing events that might be shocking, though they were also true. Director Joel Bender deserves credit for not making them overly dramatic by adding stylized violence or ominous music, as so often happens in films that deal with this type of material. The actors also deserve credit for not overacting and hamming up their performances, which often occurs in horror and suspense films. Perhaps out of respect for the families of the victims, this film is not exploitive or sensationalized. If one watches this film expecting a prurient, American-style horror film, replete with blood, gore and gratuitous nudity, one will find the experience disappointing. I was, nonetheless, a little disappointed with the film, though not for the above reasons. It is pretty clear that Karla Homolka was abused by Paul Bernardo and that he perpetrated some atrocious, unconscionable acts. I cannot comprehend why abused women stay with their men, though I know it does happen. Karla Homolka was (and perhaps still is) a deceitful, manipulative individual, who knew her husband was raping and murdering young women; yet, she did nothing about it until her own life came into jeopardy.Read more ›

I remember when the killings happened only 3 hrs away from my hometown. All of my father's family is from St Catherines and many of my family knew of or had met the victims. My grandmother actually went to church were one of the girls was abducted from. This case really hit home. I read one of the books that told the story of Karla and Paul and when I found out there was going to be a movie I was very interested in seeing it. I felt like by reading the book and watching the movie that I was keeping the victims memories alive not glorifying these sick people for the crimes they committed. This movie was only viewed in very few movie theatres in Canada, none in which were close to my home so I was unable to see the movie while in theatres. When the movie then became available on DVD again there was nowhere near to rent or buy it. I purchased this movie without ever seeing it but with a case that I had followed for such a long time I had the need to see it. This movie kept close to the facts that were released to the public through the media and the books available. The movie was very powerful, very graphic and very hard to believe to be true. It's so hard to believe that someone could do such horrible things to such innocent victims. I highly recommend this film but only to viewers that realize what this film in tales. The actors/actresses in this film did a wonderful job and I can only imagine how hard it was for them to be in these roles. To the families of the victims their memory is still alive. I hope that others who watch this film watch it for the same reasons as me not to glorify but to remember.

This movie is very good if you want to scratch the surface of what Paul and Karla were involved in. It doesn't come close to revealing the herendous acts they committed, and I am aware that is very difficult without it bordering on child pornography or a snuff film. However, there are certain facts in the movie that are left out, which I think could be included in a tasteful way. Also, this movie does not examine Karla's role deep enough. There are things that anyone who follows the case knows as fact that Karla did rather than Paul that aren't included in the movie, and why I am not sure. There are also aspects of her personality which seem to just be left out of the film. Misha Collins did a great job of playing Paul Bernardo, right down to his voice. Whereas Laura Prepon did a good job, it was difficult for me to tell if she was really playing Karla or just playing herself and how she would react under the circumstances. I enjoy this movie enough to own it, but I would recommend that if this is all you have seen about Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka, you read the book Invisible Darkness: The Strange Case Of Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka by Stephen Williams for more information. There are plenty of other books out there to read as well, such as Deadly Innocence and ...Read more ›
