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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.
