Review: Deadly Karma (Video 2011)
Bullied in High School, Sammy Harris ends up in a mental institution for five years. Now, five years later, his old classmates are dying one at a time! Deadly Karma is written by Vicky L. Neal and is directed by Jordon Hodges. The acting is bad and the cast aren´t believable as High School students as they look too old for the characters that they are supposed to portray. The camerawork, editing and pacing is pretty decent. There´s no atmosphere or any real tension.
There´s brief and lame gore. The kills, there are several, are way too soft and lacks any real punch. And I honestly couldn´t care less for the characters being targeted as they are all unsympathetic, I was just waiting for them to get killed and that it hopefully would happen as gruesomely as possible, at least then I´d get some kind of pay off but I didn´t even get that. There´s T & A and sex, we get female topless nudity and some male ass on display. There´s a very lame sex-scene where the female characters body is neatly covered with a blanket (you´ll se more and steamier scenes on HBO).
Deadly Karma will be released on DVD on 3/26/2013 by Brain Damage Films.

Rating: 1 out of 7. I give a low rating for it because I have problems discovering any redeeming qualities - not one laugh, not one good kill sequence, not one good dialogue line. Camera work, lights and editing are pretty decent but that´s it.
