Haunted by memories of his ex-girlfriend Alice, a heartbroken Billy returns home to Northern Virginia seeking solace from old friends. But what he finds is more disconcerting than comforting: his best friend Stanley has become mysterious and withdrawn from those around him. Billy attempts to find out what is going on, and as he probe Stanley’s recent activities, his friend’s behavior seems increasingly bizarre and frightening. The discovery of blood-stained evidence among Stanley’s possessions pulls him deeper into the nightmare—and eventually leads to a violent confrontation that not everyone will survive.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: For all its seriousness, Kalamity lacks a steady narrative drive.
Rotten: Writer-director James M. Hausler seems convinced that deep emotional truths will seep from the screen if he keeps downshifting the pace to an arty crawl and holding his actors in a vise grip.
Rotten: Though Hausler's sincerity is palpable, his efforts at world-weary ennui seem premature, and his wisdom about what motivates random violence in the youth of today proves too callow for a satisfying climax.
Rotten: Stahl should have had a career similar to Sam Rockwell's, blending thoughtful indies with fun popcorn flicks. Instead, he's spinning his wheels in junk like this.
