About the Movie
Evil has a beautiful face. Karla is the deeply disturbing true story of "the Ken and Barbie killers." Winter 1990 - the most notorious serial killers in the history of Canada begin their psychological dance with death and depravity as an entire country is held captive in fear. In stunningly acclaimed performances, Laura Prepon (That 70’s Show, Slackers, Come Early Morning) and Misha Collins (24, NCSI) breathe perverse life into their real life counterparts, Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka, dubbed by an anxious press as the Ken and Barbie Killers. As the gruesome events unfold, and lovely young girls disappear, the utter lack of remorse from Paul coupled with his quirky charisma paint a delusional world of normalcy for Karla. Police frantically search for and eventually put an end to the couple's horrific killing spree and their trial captivates the entire nation, setting off waves of controversy surrounding the brutal killings. In the end, this gripping, tension-packed film will haunt you forever - left to ponder the psyches of two individuals in a tragically demented relationship… because it's true.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Things in the movie, like the slasher movie music cues, hint that Karla has exploitation in its veins. The reasons for making it -- and seeing it -- remain more than slightly suspect.
Rotten: You can call it guilty of exploitation, tastelessness or insensitivity if you like, but its greatest failing is a certain deadly pointlessness.
Rotten: No audience, Canadian or otherwise, will learn anything here outside of the macabre facts. Worse, they won't feel anything either, not even -- and this is inexcusable -- for the victims themselves.
This movie is mostly good. If you don't like truely disturbing stories I wouldn't recommend this to you. But if it doesn't bother you, I say at least rent the movie and give it a go.
Very accurate account of the events hence all the more disturbing. This film not only shows us how manipulating and deceitful Karta was but how involved she was in the murders and what a travesty it is that she is out on the street again. Chilling performances by Collins and Prepon.
This movie was not nearly as good as people claim... it was typical, boring, and the acting was a little sloppy
