User Review

Good movie triumphs over fraudulent reviews

Rating: 8/10

I don't really comment on these websites ever, but after logging onto IMDb to see when this movie was coming, I was surprised to see all these negative and mean-spirited reviews and thus felt compelled to write something positive.

First let me say, I'm a horror fan, not an expert by any means, but I like a good horror film as much as the next guy.

Secondly, I actually saw the movie at the NYC Horror Film Festival, where the movie got a standing ovation. Let me repeat that: The movie got a STANDING OVATION. And from what I understand, this was the only time this movie has screened thus far, so I wish someone could please explain to me how and where all these negative reviewers saw it. Everyone in New York seemed to love it. There's no way all these people writing negative stuff could've seen the movie as there were only 300 or so people in the audience and everyone loved it. Remember the standing ovation? I do.

Regardless of what these frauds have written, the movie was good. I'm certainly not claiming it was the greatest or scariest film ever made, but it was certainly a good, fast moving, hide- your-face in your hands movie.

The lead actress was hot, and moved from "put upon" to "tough" very well. In addition to having a great body, she was self-assured and sexy. The other girls were hot as well.

The horror beats were scary and the movie had enough tension and mystery to keep me interested the whole time. There were also some great scares, original kills, and a few great gory moments.

Look for the scene where Tamara emerges from the grave -- I was freaked out.

Compared to a lot of the clichéd, over-the-top-gore out there, Tamara stood out as a good movie. It has a story and some excellent tension. Sexy and scary (and hot high school chicks) in one movie -- my kind of flick.
