Editorial Reviews

Tamara is not the most popular girl in school. Mousy and quiet she is picked on constantly. When her classmates play a practical joke that goes awry and results in her death, the once homely teenager comes back from the dead as a sexy seductress to exact revenge on her killers… one by torturous one.

Natrually, this leads to the jocks pulling a rather cruel prank on Tarma and, of course, this leads to Tamara accidentally getting killed and buried out in the woods.
Jeffrey Ellis
I accept campy movies in the Horror genre, even bad horror films can be great if they don't take themselves too seriously.

Tamara is an occasionally diverting horror film. The title character (well played by dancer Jenna Dewan) is a shy, nerdy high school student who manages to get on the bad side of the jocks at her school. Natrually, this leads to the jocks pulling a rather cruel prank on Tarma and, of course, this leads to Tamara accidentally getting killed and buried out in the woods. However, like all shy, nerdy girls in these types of films, Tamara was into black magic and, the next day, everyone is quite surprised to see Tamara boldly back from the dead, strutting through the school hallways in a high heels and a red bustier. Not only has returning from the dead given Tamara a new look but it's also left her with a thirst for revenge and the supernatural powers necessary to get it.

The film's plot will be obvious to anyone who has ever seen a horror film and neither director Jeremy Haft or writer Jeffrey Reddick offer up any new twists on a familiar story. However, the film does occasionally feature some memorable moments. Though most of the actors sleepwalk through their roles, three actresses do offer up performances that transcend the limitations of their parts. As Tamara's best friend, Katie Stuart is immensely likeable and believable as a well-meaning teenager who has suddenly found herself in over her head. Claudette Mink, who plays the unfortunate wife of a teacher that Tamara has a crush on, is good in a relatively thankless role and she brings a real sense of fear to the scenes where she's menaced by Tamara's magic. She makes those scenes real and, for a few minutes at least, helps the picture rise above the limitations of its plot. As the title character, Jenna Dewan gives a strong and credible performance.

Format: DVD
Tamara was a good entertaining horror/teenage angst movie in the same vein as De Palma's Carrie and pretty much most of the teenage revenge/slasher flicks of the late 70's and early 80's. Such horror films involved the high school jocks and popular cliques getting their comeuppance by way of the nerdy student who has had enough. This time around the nerd in question is one Tamara whose shy, bookish and frumpy nature makes her an easy mark for every other kid in school.

Newcomer and extremely hot Jenna Dewan plays the title role and she does a very good job pulling off the dual personality role Tamara goes through the film. The first half of the film Dewan was very believable as the mousy and nerdy student whose low self-esteem adds to keeping her ostracized from the rest of the student population. It doesn't help that she begins to misread one of her teacher's (played by Matthew Marsden) attempts to help her as some sort of seduction she so craves. There is a small bit of a bright side to her daily existence in the form Chloe (played by Katie Stuart), she of the popular girl with a heart-of-gold role. Tamara's life soon turns for the worst as her attempts to show her love for her helpful teacher is rebuffed and her published article about drug-use in athletics puts her in the crosshairs of a couple of jocks with much to lose.

Typical of such teenage revenge horror movies, the cruel jocks and popular kids concoct a plan to humiliate and embarrass Tamara, but just like those past films their plans backfire and the target of their pans gets killed during the the prank. The filmmaker really don't add something new to this tried and tested formula.

Format: DVD
I actually came across this movie on cable a couple of nights ago,and watched it more out of boredom than anything else,only to be surprisingly entertained. The story revolves around a teenager [played well by newcomer Jenna Dewan] who is a misfit at school, her only motivation being a well-meaning teacher [played by Matthew Marsden], and a kind friend in the form of Chloe [Katie Stuart]. Tamara gets into the bad books of some of the popular kids in school when her expose on doping in athletics is published in the school paper...this sets the scene for a cruel prank that goes horribly awry when Tamara ends up dead and is buried in the woods. The twist here is that Tamara was also a novice witch who dabbled in the black arts, and she returns from the grave as a sexy, malicious vixen hell-bent on exacting her revenge on all who cross her, including some innocents, such as her English teacher upon whom she has a crush, his wife and even Chloe. Though the plot is really nothing new, and has been done in different variations, Jenna Dewan's Tamara is sufficiently convincing and compelling to watch, and the methods she uses to get back at her enemies, though not highly original, nevertheless make for entertaining viewing. "Tamara" is not a great horror movie, but it is actually a pretty decent B movie that bears at least one viewing.

About one minute into the teen horror epic "Tamara," I pulled out my B-movie goggles. It is instantly apparent that this film won't win awards or critical acclaim, but that doesn't mean it couldn't have been fun. There are plenty of cheesy (or gruesome) indie shockers that I have appreciated. A film of this type can entertain as long as it fully embraces and acknowledges its limitations. If nothing else--get in my face, shock me, repulse me, make me cringe at bad one-liners--anything to connect me to the material and make me overlook its shortcomings. That said, "Tamara" comes close to being a good time but falls woefully short where it mattered the most.

The plot of "Tamara" is familiar and serviceable. Borrowing from dozens of more successful flicks, "Tamara" pieces together a tale of witchcraft and revenge. Tamara is a shy high school misfit. We know this because she wears oversized clothes and has bad hair, even though she is clearly beautiful. Barely able to put two words together because of social awkwardness, we are supposed to accept that she is a star pupil (even though she's seen sleeping through class) and a crack investigative journalist who has uncovered a steroid scandal at school. Well, her classmates are none too happy about this! Using her infatuation with the English teacher, they lure her into a practical joke with unexpectedly nasty consequences. Let's just say that Tamara strikes back with the assistance of her supernatural leanings--she has studied witchcraft.

Now begins a revenge tale, Tamara seeks justice for what was done to her as well as staking a claim on her true "love." From frumpy to porn star, she now has the looks and abilities necessary to drive others to do her bidding.
