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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Uneven but occasionally promising April 22, 2006
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.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, fun and Jenna Dewan is 'wicked'! June 15, 2007
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Beware the Unpopular October 11, 2006
Tamara is a high school girl who just doesn't fit in very well. She is quiet and plain on the outside but full of normal emotions on the inside. She has a crush on a teacher and has fantasies concerning them. Her feelings can be hurt and she wants to strike back. But her bookish nature puts her on the track of some witchcraft books. One has a spell that will make the object of her crush fall for her. But when it gets to the final step of the spell, Tamara chickens out. But the spell is accidently completed when the popular students set a mean trap for Tamara. A trap that results in her death. The students decide to hide her body and say nothing. They don't want their futures ruined by an accident.

But then Tamara returns to school. A new and improved Tamara full of confidence and dressing to show her real beauty. This Tamara also wants revenge for being killed and buried. Now her touch can make people fall in love with her and they are them willing to do anything for her. Tamara's vengeance grows and grows ans she gets more and more out of control. Can she be stopped before everyone is killed? You will have to watch to find out.

A little different from most teen revenge horror films. Although not as original as Carrie or The Girl Most Likely To, it still manages to stand a bit higher than most. Unfortunately there were a few moments where the production failed to achieve. For instance in one scene two guys are convinced to make out. When discovered by a girlfriend, they are completely clothed and look like they were merely hiding under the covers. While this topic can be too edgy for some, if you are going to write it into the film, it should be done right. But for the most part the movie stands up well and has some real tension. If you like horror a step above typical mad slasher antics then you should check this one out.
